Hi Ranchers, may be I look silly to you..but this is actual requirement.

We have intranet website in our company, and it has Hyperlink for peoplesoft - and this peoplesoft application support only Firefox.

Users always use IE6 to browse intranet webiste, but when users select this PEOPLESOFT Hyperlink it should open new window - using Firefox .

Could some one give a idea on this, one option i been searching for code - using Java script we could control this - but how??

Any suggestions or code snippets would be great help.

Thanks and regards,VIJAY.

No, you can't control this - it's a setting under the control of the user. What you can do is detect if a non-Firefox browser is used, and in case it is -instead of the link- show a message to the effect of "you need to be using Firefox to proceed".

Hi Vijay
Sorry for the delay.
1) I think that you must put a small comment beside the link or something similar explaining about this to the user.

2) Or just show the link when the user open the page with firefox

3) use try this code but.... what happend if the user have not installed firefox?
I modified and tried it and i wont be able to run Firefox in my pc.


or this

MOre theory information here
I personally dont like the third option
