    Today Firefox updated its version to Firefox 19.0 on all OpenSuse 12.2 machines I deal with and the Moonlight Add-on does not run Silverlight videos it use to under Firefox 18.x versions. The only way to get them shown is downgrade to version 18.x from Yast. Any Ideas?

    You have posted in entirely the wrong place,and inadvertently created a new KB article. I imagine that someone will remove that, and this discussion will then also disappear.

    This is a subject where you may well get a better answer on a Linux or silverlight related forum. To ask a question on one of our Firefox forums please use /questions/new.If you do post before this discussion disappears post back here in case anyone is following this issue.

    Also note there is an existing thread I have posted in. No solution was discovered but if you wish to look at it:

    Note it is possible to install and enable Moonlight in Firefox, but probably not do anything much useful with it. Who knows maybe because of this discussion someone with an answer may notice the support questions, however I suspect it is just a case of there is no true full silverlight equivalent now available for Linux.
