go to toyota.com and try to build an fj cruiser (that's why i need it). after install, i get the "you need to install viewpoint" even though i installed it... i'm also having a problem with niketown.com saying i need to upgrade my browser (i'm using a macbook with safari 2.0 and all my updates...) clearly something is awry :(

I think the Nike site just wasn't updated itself for the latest Flash. I'm pretty sure I have the latest Flash. It should be fine once you click the ignore option.

As for Toyota, whenever I try to build that vehicle, I get forced to put in my ZIP code and get taken to this stupid on-lot dealer inventory search thing. So I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong....

Toyota's website has always given me problems too, when I tried to "build a vehicle." I am on a PC right now using FireFox and it crashes FF. I reported the error to Mozilla FireFox.

Strange that you are taken to the on-lot dealer. That never happens to me. I guess it depends on your Zip. Enter mine: 07110

Play around a bit: I get Firefox (Windows) to crash 100% of the time.

Actually, it didn't crash for me, but it also didn't display in a usable manner (same results in FF and Safari). I lost interest and trashed the plugin. :eek: Wonder if I'm still part of the 60%. :D I'm surprised that Toyota would use this kind of junk on their website....

I agree that Toyota's site is poorly designed. Even on Internet Explorer (Windows obviously) it is ackward and choppy.
