Thank you, I will take a look at that thread.
The "site" is a "web based" manufacturing management system written by
an outside vendor.
At the time of purchase we were told it was built using jsp and flash.
But after trying to run it using anything but ie, i realized that it
would not run.
We contacted the vendor, at which point they informed us that that the program
was also relying on activeX. which is what's breaking alternate
So, ever since, I have been trying to get IE running under linux.
I have been making multiple copies of .ies4linux to test various
version of jre/jdk
I am up to about 8 copies with no success...
