Hi,

My site is currently in mozilla, because of some session problems I would like to open a link in IE.

I am using perl and javascript.

Thanks in advance.

i'm trying to make sense of your question.  You have a an application that you've built using perl and javascript and you want to force the user to IE as the browser.  Is this correct?

Actually the web page is created using perl.   I want to login to client interface while i am using the customer support login, without losing the session of customer support. The login process is by clicking a link.

So i want to open the client page in IE, when i am using the customer support login in mozilla.

The two browsers do not share any cookies or state information.  Switching to another browser would require you to login again in the new browser.  Doesn't matter which browsers you use either.

If you want a new login, that would the way to do it.  Simply because the browsers don't share cookies or any state information.  Each browser would be in a different session even though they are both open at the same time.

I dont want to share any cookie..My site is currently opened in Mozilla . There is a link which leads to a new login..and it should be opened in IE automatically..Is there any way to launch IE application using perl or javascript.
not with perl and javascript - if you want to lauch a particular link from mozilla in IE install the plugin IE Tab and then configure the link within IE Tab to use IE

You can open your own copy of IE but you can't force someone else to open a link in IE.
