Has Firefox ended support for Microsoft Silverlight in Windows 8.1?

Posted

I can no longer use Nowtv.com. A message comes on saying that Microsoft's Silverlight program may be corrupted, please fix now. I have gone through all the trouble-shooting steps and run Microsoft's own Fix-it tool for Silverlight, and scanned the PC for corrupt files, still no joy! Is anybody experiencing the same problem with Firefox? I'm running Windows 8.1. Any tips and resolutions would be much appreciated. Thank you.

From your System Details, it looks like you are using two different anti-virus. Please confirm.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. Is the problem still there?
