Using Firefox with MailFlow

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

A somewhat well kept secret is that now you can use Mozilla Firefox with MailFlow if you prefer. From inception, MailFlow was designed to be used by desktop computers running Windows and IE (5.5 and above). Now, through the use of a free Firefox plug-in you can use MailFlow with either IE or Firefox under Windows. In our experience, there is no degradation of performance with Firefox, and it is very stable.

Here are the details provided to you courtesy of Kevin Fortune, MailFlow technician:

NOTE: This article only applies to installations of Firefox that are installed on a Windows Operating System.

In order to use Firefox with VisNetic MailFlow, the following addon must be installed:

IETab – This addon is for Windows only

Once the addon is installed into Firefox follow these steps:
  1. Open Firefox
  2. Click on Tools
  3. Click on IETab Options
  4. Specify the URL you access MailFlow with, followed by a /* (For example:* ) NOTE: All entries need http:// before adding and also need /* at the end.
  5. Click Add

  6. Source

Now when you open this URL in FireFox the page will load in an IE Tab.
