It is a great add-on and saves me a lot of time by not having to start IE for websited that are only IE compatible.
However, ever since I installed the latest version 1.5.20090525 I am having a couple of issues with it.
1. Sometimes, the IE Tab does not work i.e. it kind of hangs when trying to open a site that is configured to open in IE only. Plus, when I try to start IE by itself, even IE refuses to load my home page. The status line says "Connecting to site 207.46....." and just sits there for a long time. I don't even get the Page can not be displayed message. I have to restart Firefox for both IE Tab and IE itself to start working again. May be the developers can have a look at this issue whatever may be causing this behaviour.
2. Some CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) online services do not work properly with IE Tab. I have open Internet Explorer to do my tasks for those sites. I am referring to "My Business Account" online services for this purpose.
Other than it is a great add-on and I will always keep it no matter its quirks.
An excellent add-on. Took me almost one full day to lay my hands on this one. There were so many add-ons in the Tabs category but this is the one I wanted.
Anyway, there is something I would like improved in this add-on. When history of a tab is more than one screen full, it drops the oldest ones to accomodate the new ones. Is it possible to cascade to additional screens and show all the history from first to last. The options "Goto First" and "Goto Last" work well though but I still can not see the missing history.
Other than that, it is exactly what I was looking for. Great work and thanks a lot....
