AOL with firefox

Hi, Unfortunately i use AOL and if i want to connect to the internet without using the aol web browser i have to right-click on the aol quick launch icon, select dialler, type in my password and connect, i was wondering if there is a firefox extension or add-in that could do this for me.

sorry if this is in the wrong place and thanks in advance.

Nope

That's AOL's software itself that's causing the issue. It used to be you had to fully launch the whole AOL software, then minimize, and then use a real browser like Firefox. If you just have to right-click and connect now, at least that's a little progress.

AOL isn't a standard ISP, so you can't configure it using the standard Dialup Networking settings in Windows so it'll just connect like you can with Earthlink and other ISPs.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
