Hi all !

Thanks

Yes ! the problem is that some complex macros, for a yet unknown reason, don't work if some xls files are opened as an embedded object in SlimBrowser.
For this reason, instead of reinstalling Firefox, I would prefer to understand how to set SlimBrowser properly.
Thank you

If your using an "online" collaborative spreadsheet I suspect you will have better functionality from it while using Chrome or Firefox. They are superior to IE for such things and Slimbrowser uses the IE engine.

For everything else, I right click and use Save As... to download xls files to my desktop (or other useful location) and run them with the full spreadsheet application instead of the browser plugin which has limited capability. This is true for every browser.
