    I thought this message will go away in IE7, but even worse. I cannot reply my
    web mail without deleting sender's message first. In 6, at least I only need
    to click the message box. Now I have to use FireFox.

  2. If you only need to activate a control why do you delete a message?

    If you are using FireFox as a workaround it sounds as if the control
    is unnecessary anyway. E.g. what would FireFox do if you made it
    use IE6's User-Agent? ; }

    Oh. Are you only getting the "activate a control" message with IE6?
    Perhaps you just need to spoof IE6's User-Agent with IE7 for that
    website? Then you would still need to activate the control but perhaps
    be able to use the site better.

    E.g. download and install the ie6sp2.reg mod linked from this page:

    Good luck
