Mozilla Firefox

When I press the Play button using IE, Windows Media Player starts right up and starts streaming, but when I try to do it using Mozilla Firefox,WMP reports an unknow extension. Has anyone else experienced this? Or have any clues?

RichC,

I have experience this..yes...Mozilla is one of the minion of Satan! Or well...it's actually just a spawn of Netscape Navigator which is so incredibly buggy. I'm a Web Designer/Developer/Animator and I have to deal with Mozilla every single stinkin' day. I have to literally design for Mozilla to make sure that all of my stuff works in Mozilla. Most companies don't do that. Most people are like me and think "screw Mozilla". Because truthfully, it's reputation is that it is very buggy so many people don't use it. To be quite honest, I don't know how Netscape stays in business.

Mike,

Firefox is gone. It was just too much screwing around to make it work. It has some great features, like tabbed browsing, but too buggy for me.

Too bad. Firefox was a decent movie. Impressive flight sequences, for its time.

Netscape 7.1 (built on Mozilla) has served me very well as a browser. As an email client, P.U.! It's the buggiest software I've used in a decade.
