    Use IE in FireFox

    Websites sometimes look different depending on the browser that's used. If you're a FireFox 1.5 user who wants to see how a site looks in Internet Explorer 7 there is no need to open up a new browser, just download and install the IE extension which allows you to view pages through the eyes of IE.

    To enable this feature, first go to Tools menu then select the Extensions option. From there click on the Get More Extensions link, that will open up a new Window, select the IE Tab extension. A box might prompt you about the option being unsigned, but that's okay. Wait for the Install button to light up then click it. Once that's done, close down all your FireFox browsers so the extension fully installs.

    Now whenever you want to view a page as Internet Explorer sees it within little old Firefox, simply click the FireFox icon on the bottom right hand corner of the FireFox browser window and it will load up the page in IE mode. Please note that while you're viewing pages in Internet Explorer mode, you’ll be vulnerable to all of Explorer's holes and bugs. To fix those run Windows Update, but that's another tip...
    OK, I know some will say WHY??? Well, at work IE doesn't work well. I am wondering if this will help me. Regardless I would love to see the inverse too

    I can't add anything to that.

    Do you mean this?

    FirefoxView is a Mozilla Firefox extension that allows you to open Firefox with the current page or a selected link displayed in Internet Explorer.

    The Internet Explorer menu items will be installed the first time you run Firefox with the extension installed.

    Close, but it doesn't seem to work with IE7, which is the one I have at work.
    This actually brings me to the real solution, if there any way to push MSN messenger to open with firefox? It opens IE regardless of the default browser
