    I have a problem with firefox that when i go to a website and there is a windows media player movie on it it does not play however when i copy the url and open it with safari it has no problems with it. I get a warning message then the movie plays in a windows media player window. How can i watch these movies in firefox?

    Maybe if you fix the problem that causes the warning message, they'll play in both.

    What are you using to play WMP movies? Are you using Flip4Mac, WMP9, or something else?

    Maybe the same condition (whatever it might be) is impossible to overcome in Firefox.

    Try opening Firefox under Rosetta (select application icon, command-I /get info, and tick the Rosetta box). The downside is that Firefox will run slower, but the windows media links might work then.
