Unfortunately, there is quite a large number of sites that are badly (if at all) displayed in Firefox. IE View provides a quick solution to the problem. First of all, it lets you quickly open any site in the Microsoft browser using the Context menu command. If you often work with such a site, IE View can automatically open it in Internet Explorer immediately after you have typed in its address in Firefox. The extension can automatically close the tab in Firfox. IE View is a must-have for active surfers.

Developer's Description

IE View is a simple Mozilla and Mozilla Firefox extension (for Microsoft Windows systems), which allows the current page or a selected link to be opened in Internet Explorer. I use Firefox 99.99% of the time, but there are those moments -- particularly when testing new pages, or when viewing that rare IE-only page that's actually interesting -- when I need to see what things look like in IE.
