This website wants to run the following add-on: 'Dymo Label Software' from 'Dymo Corporation (unverified publisher)'.

Clicking on Run ActiveX Control will bring up this scary dialog which requires you to click RUN for things to work:

If things still are not working, the BIG HAMMER is to add be in the list of trusted sites in order to access the (unsigned) Dymo ActiveX controls.

  2. Click on the Security tab.
  3. Click on the Trusted sites zone and then on the Sites button.
  4. In the Trusted sites dialog box type, uncheck the Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone and then click Add.
