Moz/FF

Windows Live Shopping comparison shopping site just doesn't work with the open-source browser. Microsoft says a fix is coming.

Microsoft Corp. has released in beta this week its Windows Live Shopping site, but Firefox users will have to switch to Internet Explorer if they want to look for bargains.

A visitor trying to access the new site with Firefox on Wednesday found his browser directed to a page that said, "We're sorry. Windows Live Shopping Beta does not yet support Firefox. We're working to correct this as soon as possible."

The page includes a link to MSN Shopping, which is Firefox friendly.

Microsoft officials were not immediately available for comment.
