Solved IE-9 doesn't work with Nasa website

So... quick update... and thanks again.

I'm a seasoned Acronis user user so there is no problem in me trying out pretty much anything.

Firefox. I think I could get to like this and it does work on the problem site I mentioned but an absolute MUST HAVE FEATURE is an easy means of deleting ALL browsing history and passwords/cookies etc and then being able to import them from a cookie file (as you can in IE). From a very brief search it appears that might not be nativly (oh great, I've got a spell checker as well) natively supported. I need to look into that aspect... its a must have feature for the work I do.

It will be tomorrow when I have more time to play with this but thanks again.

There are many, many Firefox add-ons, check them out. History and associated stuff is easily deleted under the History header and the Cookies Manager add-on allows backup and restore. I can also thoroughly recommend Deskcut, Classic Theme Restorer and New Tab Override, to name but a few.

I think I've got the cookies sussed thanks to your suggested add on. I noticed on a site that had an embedded Flash video that there was just an empty space with a 'download Flash' prompt. Hadn't time to look into that although I have Flash installed for IE so I'm guessing it needs enabling somewhere for Firefox... so that's another one for tomorrow.

There are different Flash players so you may well have one already for other browsers but you may still need one for IE. Also now Flash will ask you to run on each website rather than run automatically.

I'll hopefully get chance for a good play later. The Flash player I have (I didn't know there were different ones tbh) is the standard Adobe one that IE works with.

I'm still a bit puzzled about using Flash Player with Firefox myself, but Programs and Features now shows two versions installed: Adobe Flash Player 19 ActiveX (for IE) and Adobe Flash Player 19 NPAPI (for Firefox). I'm not sure about the best way to update both at the same time, but may try uninstalling both the next time there's a Flash Player update.

Firefox is quite capable of playing YouTube videos using HTML5, and interestingly seems to prefer it even if Flash Player is allowed for YouTube; right-clicking in the video window gave me HTML5 settings rather than Flash Player settings? (IE9 performs rather poorly on YouTube even using Flash Player, with many webpage display problem reports.)

By default Flash will update itself automatically and every now and again you will see a popup asking permission to do so. I have 3 versions installed, for IE, Firefox and Chrome.

Well I've settled on Pale Moon (offshoot of Firefox) primarily because I just like the look and feel of it. The cookies add on from FF works fine. FF is fine (good) but it reminds me to much of W10 in its default appearance. Bland !

I've just installed Flash Player (minus the McAfee stuff they wanted to bundle with it) and I still see only one entry in control panel for Adobe Flash Player although it now has added to it the 'plug in' option. I did have to close and restart the browser for Flash to show in add ons for it to work.

That Window shows both versions so it's fine.

Flash only has one entry in control panel but 2 entries in programs and features provided you installed both versions which it looks like you did.
