LMAA browser extensions & add-ons
Great news! There are add-ons and extensions for Chrome and Firefox that will allowLocal Market Audience Analyst (LMAA) to work with these browsers on a PC.
What are they? These are software packages that can be downloaded and installed (most of the time for free) and added to a browser. They allow browsers to do things beyond the originally planned functionality or solve unforeseen compatibility issues. In these cases the add-ons allow LMAA to act ‘normally’ in Firefox and Chrome on a PC when they usually wouldn’t.
To get the IE Add-On for Firefox, open Firefox and click on the menu icon in the upper right corner:
When this menu opens up click on the Add-ons icon (puzzle piece in the lower right corner of the menu)
Search for ‘IE’ in the search bar in the upper right corner. When the results come back install the Add-on titled: “IE Tab V2 (Enhanced IE Tab) 18.104.22.168”
Once the Add-on is installed Firefox will suggest restarting Firefox now, do that to enable this Add-on.
After Firefox has restarted you’ll see a button in the upper right corner of the browser window that looks like this:
This button will enable you to view and use LMAA within Firefox. Now go to SRDS.com (in Firefox) and click on the new button in the upper right corner. Sign in to SRDS.com as you normally would and click on the LMAA link. Everything should now run as if you’re in IE. The reports may take a minute or two longer to come back but when they do they look fine.
Now, let's move onto Chrome
To get the Chrome extension that will allow LMAA to work within Chrome do one of the following:
Follow this link or go to the Chrome web store and search for and install IE Tab:
Once the extension is installed this button will appear in the upper right corner:
This button will enable LMAA to work within Chrome. Go to SRDS.com and click on this button and sign in as you would normally would. Then click on the LMAA link and run reports. They should all work now. They will come back a bit slower than in IE but not much.
