Browsers

To use all the features available in OWA you need to use one of these Web browsers.

Known issue with Firefox 8: There appears to be a known bug with Firefox 8 and live@ucl which results in all attachments being downloaded with the *.ashx file extension, making the files unreadable. This appears to be a bug in the OWA.

The only workaround is to revert to an earlier version of Firefox or switch to an alternative browser such as IE 9.
