hi guys,

We have some stores that are locked down for normal users. They wanted me to install the internet explorer add-in for Firefox. I did this as administrator on the domain for this PC.
So as administrator, if you open Firefox you can to Tools->IE Tab Options.

However, I am unable to make this add-in appear when normal users are logged in. And when logged in as normal user, the Tools->IE Tab Options doesn't appear. The option isn't even available. This must be a permissions related matter?

Do you know where I have to make the changes to security?

Thanks
Yashy

No, this is not the way the add-on on Mozilla works. It never install the addons system wide, it is per User vise.

You would need to install it for the per User.
