I have been unable to find information that speaks to using both IE and Firefox, can someone direct me to a good explanation?
Sometimes we cling to what we know and have some concerns about changing what is already comfortable to us. I would guess there is not much involved in retaining IE when I install FF, but I would like to read some tips/tricks about using them both.

Thank you

You cannot remove IE from Windows (without a far bit of trouble to the average user) so the whole thing's a non-issue. Just install Fx and try it out :)

One thing you might have a problem with is bookmarks (or favourites in IE parlance). When Fx is installed it takes a copy of you favourites, but it doesn't keep them in the same place. If you use both IE and Fx concurrently you'll find that your bookmakrs start to diverge. I've seen programs that'll provide a central store for both browsers, but I've not tried it and can't remember it's name. Anyone else?

Even if you found a way to delete IE, I wouldn't do it.

You would not be able to do Windows Updates via a browser, and some important sites require IE to function properly.
