My real 'player download' does not work, but will work on I.E.

Posted

Since updating F Fox my real player 'Download this video' will not appear, I have to go on Int Explorer to use it !

Chosen solution


Go to my link download, its a fixed version and it works fine for download on FF 3.6.6 as it did before !
