  1. hi all
    I started using firefox a few days ago, but can't watch videos in cnn.com
    The video page loads fine, but the video does not start.
    It works fine with IE.
    It's firefox 2
    windows xp home.
    I have the adblock plus extension installed. I tried viewing the videos with it disabled.

    Thanks for your help.

    get the 'IE Tab' extension, then when you get that problem you can right-click on the page and select open in IE in a tab or open in IE externally. That's the easiest way around it. CNN videos work on my FF...I had trouble once when I allowed VLC to install it's FF plug-ins. I had to uninstall VLC and reinstall it without that option. If you have Zone Alarm Pro turn off your privacy settings in it.

    I tried that program, and it worked. Thanks a lot.
    It's a little annoying, but I like it.
    I remember seeing it in the extensions page, but never thought I would find it useful.
