Firefox hijacks Internet Explorer

Postby oneof5 » Wed Sep 10, 2008 7:11 pm

Whenever I open Internet Explorer to view certain websites that Firefox has a problem with, Firefox comes up as the web browser for that site. For instance, when I type in the the web address for "amazon" on the IE web browser, a new window opens for amazon but it is Firefox. I have uninstalled yahoo toolbars, reset defaults under internet options, check IE as the default browser, everything I can think of and have found as suggestions. The only way that I can keep Firefox from opening as the web browser for that website is to google search the website on IE and open it from there.

so the website is opening in firefox from WITHIN Internet Explorer? Or something different?

Have you cleared the browser cache on both browsers?
