[quote=bigD] disrupted: As I mentioned above (Date: February 08, 2009 01:22AM) I tried IETab before and it didn't work. I tried it again, just now, because you mentioned in the thread that the macro was a bit outdated. So I downloaded the new macro and replaced the older one. Once again... it didn't work. After I did the install of IETab and configured it to allow this IE specific website... I created a blank html with nothing on it except a link to that website. I then opened it and right-clicked the link and selected "Send to Trident renderer". It did open the website in what appeared to be an IE tab (w/ IE logo on the tab). After logging into the website... I right-clicked any link to try and open it in a new tab but there is no context menu option to open it in a new tab (only to open it in a new window). Selecting to open it in a new window caused an IETab error dialog to popup saying an error had occurred and that I should restart K-Meleon. Another thing I noticed was there was no history for the IE tab being generated (the Back button remained disabled the whole time I was navigating the site). I un-installed the IEtab again. I've given up on trying to use K-Meleon on this "one" website. I'll just use Internet Explorer for it since... it's (so far) the "only" website, that I know of, that is so radically IE specific. Yogi: I would have to agree 100%, in regards to the browser having to deal with all the security issues that each engine has to deal with. It would be insane for a developer to try and make a browser with such capabilities. desga2: Next time I visit that IE specific website I'll see what the source code looks like for their links. I'm inclined to think they're not opened with a script but I'm not 100% sure. All I (currently) know is that I can right-click a link with IE and open the link in a new tab. But doing the same thing in both Firefox and K-Meleon "does open" a new tab "but" the contents is redirected to a webpage stating... multiple sessions are not allowed. Which is why I'm wondering if it's a cookie problem. How else could the website know that I opened a link in a new tab? I'll have to do some testing to see if opening a new tab in IE for a link within the website alters the website's cookie. And then run the same test in both Firefox and K-Meleon. Maybe IE does not alter the cookie and Firefox/K-Meleon do? Or maybe opening a new tab for a link within a website does not generate a new cookie using IE but a new cookie is generated using Firefox/K-Meleon? Or is running these kinds of test a waste of my time? bigD[/quote]
