Thomson One & Browser Compatibility: Using Chrome and Firefox

Students who use Thomson One are already familiar with its quirks. The database only runs properly using Internet Explorer, and works best in older versions (7-9). There is a workaround for IE10, using the compatibility feature, which we discuss in our previous post. For those without Internet Explorer there is another option. The IE Tab extension allows your Chrome or Firefox browser to act like IE, which allows you to access Thomson One using one of those browsers (for Windows only). 

Note that we were unable to download analyst reports using the IE Tab extension in Chrome. Other functionality such as exporting data to Excel was successful.

Download the IE Tab extension from the Chrome Web Store or from Firefox Add-ins. We tested the extension using Chrome. IE Tab 1

When IE Tab is added to your Chrome browser, it will appear as an icon next to Settings.

IE Tab 2

To access Thomson One. Search for Thomson One in the FindIt box on the Lippincott Library homepage. Right-click on the link to Thomson One under E-Resources. Hold your cursor over IE Tab Options and select Open in IE Tab.

IE Tab 3

Log into the database with your PennKey and Password.

IE Tab 4

The only functionality that the IE Tab extension does not allow is downloading analyst reports. We received an error message every time we tried to download analyst reports, but let us know if you have better results.
