Firefox and Warpath links.

I hate to start a thread about this but I could use some help.

I stopped using IE for security reasons and switched to Firefox. When I tried to watch Dallas vs.Redskins highlights someone posted it took almost 5 minutes to show up. When it does appear it works fine but just takes forever.

I've Googled my ass off trying to find a fix but no luck.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Firefox and Warpath links.

It took so long because it is a large file, and it had to be downloaded before it could be viewed. I would recommend the download statusbar plugin for firefox.

I'll try this add on. Thanks.

Just kinda threw me because all my media links open instantly with IE. I thought it may be a setting in Firefox that could be changed.

Right click and save to your computer. View from your hard drive so you don't have to download it each time.

+1. It's much easier to download to PC and watch...

And here is a list of Firefox extensions I have that are great:
*Adblock Plus
*Copy Plain Text (allows copy and paste without the formatting)
*ForecastFox (Weather at your fingertips in the bottom right hand corner of the browser)
*meebo (log onto multiple IM clients through one interface)
*IE Tab or IEView (allows you to see links in IE without having to open IE)
*Google Toolbar for Firefox

Re: Firefox and Warpath links.

+1 for IEView

The only others I use (and couldn't use Firefox without):
* BugMeNot (database of login IDs for free sites to avoid registration)
* Foxmarks (syncs bookmarks across all computers)

And if you have the slightest interest or knowledge of web design/development, Firebug is the coolest Firefox plugin ever made.

Re: Firefox and Warpath links.

The Web Developer toolbar is pretty handy too.
