Firefox says I need Windows Media Player 11 and it is already on the computer. How do I get Firefox to see it?


The question says it all. Windows Media Player is already installed on my computer but it does not show up in the Plug-Ins in Firefox. How do I get Firefox to see my Windows Media Player?
