Flashing a module using Mozilla firefox

Post by Civic_Power »

Here is a neat little plug-in that will allow you to flash an iDatalink module using Mozilla Firefox

while using Mozilla Firefox, Download and install the plug-in from https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/1419

from http://www.idatalink.com click on flash your module (with your module plugged in obviously)

when you get the message that tells you that your "browser/OS is not compatible with the weblink plug-in" simply click on the Mozilla icon in the bottom right corner of your browser to switch to an emulated version of internet explorer

"Woalla" now simply continue flashing your module the way you normally would.

Using an IE tab on Chrome is still using an IE tab. it will work most of the time.

That add-on link appears to be dead, do you still have that add-on you can get a name for, or is there a new way to go about using Firefox with idata and the Weblink now that it's 2020 and this topic was started back in 2009? It's hard to believe that here in 2020 the program doesn't like Firefox, while most people using browsers on Windows machines don't like IE....
