I don't want to download Zoom so I've been given these directions for Chrome. Is there a way to do this on Firefox browser??

Once the link opens in Google Chrome: 1.      Click launch meeting 2.      When the Open Zoom Meetings box appears, click Cancel 3.      Join from your browser will appear on the screen. Click and it will open the meeting up via your web tab.

Hi kyjweber, to open the zoom meeting on Firefox, do this: When you open the link in Chrome, copy the link, then go to a new Firefox window, and paste the link there. That should work! Let me know if you have any questions!

There are a couple more steps after that. After several YouTube videos I figured it out.

The link was in an email and I copied it and pasted in a new tab.

That took me to a Zoom page where I had no options but these (see screenshots): "If you have Zoom Client installed, launch meeting. Otherwise, download and run Zoom."

YouTube directions had a "Join from your browser" option. This finally appeared when I clicked the "launch meeting" link: "If you cannot download or run the application, join from your browser."

Since the links don't show here, the screenshots might be better. All the YouTube videos had different screens.

I'm good.
