I've been using the extension since it was released, it works fine, but 
unfortunately some websites designed 100% for IE doesn't work (I mean some 
'features' on the site), that's a kind of discrimination, people can't use 
the browser that they want (firefox) and finally drop IE :-( 
I hate that websites.
