  • Cookie sharing saves me a lot of time when I have to switch to IE for a print only as it is required as per IE page setup by some online application printouts.

  • IE Tab V2 is the most stable / reliable version, but this one has features for cookie sharing which I use sometimes.

    There is no spyware. There was adware in a different version called "IE Tab Plus". It was because of this adware that they made this IE Tab + version. I know, very confusing, but so it goes.

  • Reputo como um contrasenso a mozilla criar uma plataforma alternativa ao IE mas criar complementos, como o IE Tab (todas as versões) apenas para usuários win. Utilizo o Ubuntu e quando preciso usar o IE (certificação digital, por ex.), preciso do VirtualBox... Incompreensível...

  • This is the same extension this author had published in the past under slightly different extension name "IE TAB Plus,"
    previously located on Mozilla Add-ons under following URL: (NOW REMOVED)

    I HAVE WRITTEN THE FOLLOWING REVIEW about this Add-On and author who keeps coming back with different tricks,
    he broke the Open Source ethical code when he inserted spyware in his extension and his software remains suspect.

    OR BETTER YET USE IE TAB V2 Instead found here:

    I must agree with what one user wrote below:

    "Trust once lost is gone forever and that is what has happened to this author. When I read his 'Note' after the Firefox Community called him on his deceptive behavior (did he really think we wouldn't know) "This version is as clean as the old versions." well that in itself is completely suspect.

    Anyone that says that this is no big deal and it's easy to work around is either the author or obviously hasn't been with FF since the beginning nor does he understand why FF was created in the first place."

    "Origional IE Tab - Who is the Origional! Rated 1 out of 5 stars"

  • DON'T USE!!! This version of IE Tab freezes my Firefox (v15.0.1) every time. Trying "IE Tab V2" next.

  • 比用IE9直接開 還更不好用

  • 随便又找了一个快播网站和一个小说网站试试,发现频繁崩溃。我的火狐是13.0版本的……呃,莫非应该用15的才好?……

  • When I open a page by IE Tab Plus, I can never press the back button on my Logitech mouse. Otherwise, the page and the whole firefox window froze.

  • Hello,

    I have tried IETAB and there is a malware or adware SUPERFISH.

    Can you tell me what is the right version without adware/malware ?


  • It's a nice and handy plugin.

    However, some important (imho) features are missing, and at least the possibility:
    - to rename the tabs created with IETab;
    - to change the favicon and the tab's color...

    ...or to allow other plugins (Colorful tabs, tab renamizer...) to do it!

  • Plugin crashes every time in Firefox 11
    Update: I restarted Firefox with Add-ons Disabled (in the Help menu). Starting with IE Tab +, I then added one add-on at a time (restarting every time) and it is working now. Got all Add-ons working again.

  • Froze Firefox. Doesn't work. I am using Firefox 11.0.

    To clarify everything up about IE Tab. extensions read the following:

    NOTE: THER IS NO IE Tab 2 or a reference to a add-on as reviewer "RJ" mentions. Although I am assuming he ment IE Tab V2. (

    • IE Tab + ( lays claim to Coral IE Tab by its linking reference in the description to Now the author of this one IE Tab pro is nowhere reflected in coralietab site. However the site does reference IE Tab+ as being a non SPYWARE where IE Tab Plus is SPYWARE. In the FAQ sheet it mentiones that both IE Tab Plus and IE Tab + are uploaded to the AMO by the same person. Obviously for IE Tab + does not reflect this. Now viewing the source code of does reflect quaful. So between the FAQ sheet and this sites author is contradicting. So this leaves me sketchy in regards to this add-on.

    • IE Tab (THE ORIGIONAL IE TAB) by PCMan, yuoo2k ( &, the one and only developers of IE Tab. Want proof Google it for one using date reference, but here is some proof:

    >origional mozdev site: (note the authors on the Members tab)
    >origional repository site:

    • IE Tab V2 ( lays not claim to the above add-on. It has its own site and its own source code site (

    • IE Tab Plus ( lays claim to Coral IE Tab and the Origional IE Tab. Unfortunately for them I can not find proof dating back 6 years ago like you will see with IE Tab by PCMan & yuoo2k via the source code history and even Googling it. Now this IE Tab Plus author "quaful" does appear to be the correct account holder and author which is reflective in Googling and his site by viewing the source code history but it only goes back to 2009 matching the account holders account activation date. According to the FAQ sheet this once if still not today contains the SPYWARE "Window Shopper"


  • have tried this on multiple machines and firefox versions, all it does is open the ie tab and then firefox crashes. it's sad because this is a very usefull extension and it was working some time ago.

  • Modified config file and added entry as shown to no avail. Firefox 8.01 / IE Tab + 2.04.20110724. Shows as compatible, should be compatible.

  • Adding extensions.checkCompatibility.8.0 = False to the about:config does fix the compatibility issue with 8.0.1.

  • Impresionante !!!

  • I think i've found it !
    I the adress bar, you write "about:config" and ENTER.
    Then you will have to ADD the "extension.check.....= FALSE" given by Pauline.
    I haven't tried yet. Not enough time, but I will soon.
    Let us know if it is working for you guys.
    PS: Please write you comment in english if possible... or use translator if unable.

  • Weil IETab+ ab Firefox-Version (FF) 8.0 nicht geht: Ich habe mir eine portable Version (7.0) vom FF installiert, danach den IETab+. installieren und danach den FF geschlossen, im Profilordner den Extensionsordner vom IETab+ gesucht: Install.rdf mit Editor öffnen: max-Version höher setzen (ich habe es auf 19.0 gesetzt) - speichern. komplette IETab+ - Ordner ( kopieren, in den normalen Profilordner einfügen - starten: IETab+ funzt einwandfrei ab FF.-Version 8.0

  • you typed "about" or "about:config" in the search bar?

  • Hi Pauline,

    I gave it 2 stars because it worked well until FF 8 came out. If I were writing a review for this plugin working under FF7, I'd give it 5 stars.

    You wrote:
    "To make IE Tab work with FF 8+, you advised "Just add extensions.checkCompatibility.8.0 = false in about:config"

    I need step-by-step instructions. I put the "about" in the search bar, but nothing came up under extensions.checkCompatibility or checkCompatibility for that matter.

    Are you going to be able to give us a version where we don't have to twiddle with it? I ask for those of us who are not technologically advanced.


  • Works well in FF8.
    Just add extensions.checkCompatibility.8.0 = false in about:config

  • still waiting too ... :-(

  • The title clearly states compatible with FF 8+ But my install of FF8 clearly states that it is not compatible.. Beware if you use this extension a lot

  • I use SeaMonkey 2.4.1 on Windows Vista with Internet Explorer 9 installed. The Classic Mode works, but the Advanced Mode which allows Adblock Plus and Sync Cookies does not work. Ad blocking, Ghostery, and many other privacy add-ons are supported in Internet Explorer. I prefer SeaMonkey, but occasionally use Internet Explorer for certain sites--especially Microsoft sites.
