Don: Your right I had it on the wrong rendering engine. When I switched to IE only the browser said there were missing plugins. Clicking install plugins didn't work. And refused to open any page. It installs but doesn't run under linux. Guess people are stuck using Wine to emulate IE.

Did you test this on Linux?

Seems that it really just allows genuine Microsoft IE (warts and all) to
run as an add-on to Firefox for Windows. No emulation or browser
spoofing, just the disadvantages of both. 

Be well - or at least have interesting symptoms!
