IE Tab, as I recall, is a way to open an existing install of interet
explorer within a tab of Firefox. Of course Linux, SLED included, does
not come with standards-non-compliant browsers like internet explorer, so
attempting to use IE Tab to open it cannot work.

Your best bet may be to see if you can install an old version of internet
explorer with wine, and then run that one. Better yet, fix the camera
systems to not require proprietary technology, although that ship may have
sailed with the money sent to the camera system vendor in years gone by,
and they probably will not care to fix their systems for you.

If a partner cannot help you I would guess that SUSE/Novell has options
listed on their site, though since this is a problem of dependence on
proprietary technologies the support options likely cannot help you like
they could if you were battling something involving proper interpretation
of internet standards.

Good luck.
