Just a quick question. Is Firefox compatable(sp) with Windows Vista? I had it when I had XP.

I wonder if there will be a 64-bit version of Firefox available like IE7. Just a thought....

Firefox running on Vista seems to lack the ability to play some radio stations, Classicfm.com among others.

I get a message about a missing plugin: Unknown plugin (application x-mplayer2). Firefox searches but cannot locate the missing item. Is this a known problem?

Yes, it is a know problem. The Windows Medial Player plug-in is missing. Instructions

Hooray!!! Music at last.

I had to copy the three files into the Mozilla plugins folder, just putting them in the WMP folder had no effect
