    There's a site (www.mapleglobal.com) that won't let me in unless I'm using IE.

    Is there a plugin that I can use to make websites think FF is IE? (Preferably has a on/off switch.)

    it probably uses ActiveX control, before they improve it, fake UA won't make it work.

    a online game in browser? no, no plugin or extension will work
    you might want to try to emulate windows.

    No, it won't let you run ActiveX controls, but it will get you around web developers who block other browsers for no good reason.
