    Can you show me the website that has the WMP?

    If you mean downloading it to play, that was fixed like back in 0.7 (when it finally recognized WMP as a file format). Now, if it is embedded in the page...

    but like I said, point us there first. What version of FF do you have anyway?

    Go to Help >> About FF and copy paste the info like I did here:
    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050225

    Don't have Safari, don't have a Mac lol

    Embedded files dont work on any page, is there a fix?

    Not to be rude, but...

    1.) Why are you asking a software question in the hardware forum?

    Good point, I've moved it now.

    2.) Why are you asking a question about windows software in a mac forum?

    Yes, I know that Firefox is available for OS X too, but the way it handles WMV files is very different from windows because WMP for OS X is crap.

    You would find better assistance asking on the Mozillazine forums.

    Sad, but true. 'Sides, as far as Windows users go, the Mozilla folks is good people. :D
