  • Hi
    i want to review my word documents by Selecting this item : Edit In Microsoft Office Word in firefox, but the following message display me :

    'Edit Document' requires a Windows SharePoint Services-compatible application and Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or greater.

    wheras when follow those steps with IE6, it works correctly.
    my question is that does sharepoint Document Library compatible with firefox 3.0 ?

  • For full functionality always use IE 5.5 and upwards.

    You can use Firefox; Chrome; Safari etc. with SharePoint sites and most things will work but for instance anything that requires ActiveX support will not work and the integration with the Office products (as you have seen) is not complete if you are not using IE.

  • You could take a look at this add-on for Firefox: . It gives you an "IE View" in a Firefox tab. I have heard it is an option for people who are FireFox fans and really don't want to install IE on a machine.
