Firefox and Office generated pages: Web Page Fixer +

26/10/2009 at 8:01 am Plaats een reactie

Firefox is a very fine browser. It’s fast, it’s stable, it just does what it’s intended for: Internet browsing. However sometimes, some Web pages will not be displayed correctly – especially pages that have been generated with Microsoft Office (File – Save as HTML), and that contain e.g. Excel spreadsheet data. For viewing these pages, you need some more Windows components, known as the Office Web Components. When opening a page that was generated with Office, you just get a message: “Missing: Microsoft Office Web Components” … and that’s the end of the story, you won’t get any further. A very fine solution for Firefox, and especially for non-Windows  desktops,  is available here . This Firefox addon will simple detect whether a Web page was created with Office, and then open the missing Office items…in Office (or in OpenOffice of course 😉 ).
Just one small caveat: if you encounter any problems with some Chrome views, just add the following entry in your firefox configuration settings (type about:config in the address bar, and enter the settings like in he screenshot below; the string is: preference extensions.mozillawebpagefixer.allowedChrome, the type is Boolean and the value is True). Check it out!
