Installing Firefox Add-on to Run SRDS Reports

The library’s database SRDS currently only works in Firefox using an IE add-on.  To install the add-on, do the following:


In Firefox, click on the”Open menu” icon, then Add-ons:


In the search box, type “IE” and click on the search icon:


Find “IE Tab V2 (Enhanced IE Tab)” and click “Install” to the right of it. Click on the green "Restart Now" button:



Click on the Tools menu item, then choose “IE Tab 2 Options”.  In the Options window, select the General Settings tab, then make sure that “Tools Menu Icon” is checked, and click “OK”:


Click on the “Open menu” icon, then Customize:




Drag the “IE Tab 2” icon to the right of the home button:



After moving “IE Tab 2” to the right of home button, click “Exit Customize”:


Access SRDS from the library’s home page.  Log in, and once you are at the SRDS main page, click on the IE Tab button so that the Firefox icon is displayed.  (This means that you are in IE mode with the option to move back to Firefox.)  You will probably be asked to log in to the SRDS database again:
