Cant play music on soundcloud throuth firefox browser why is this?


Been having problems using soundcloud.com on Firefox browser, can navigate through the website without any problems as soon as try and play any of the tunes through their player nothing works. When using Explorer I have not encountered any problems and the site functions fine. It's a shame as Firefox is my preferred Browser.

I had this problem. It turned out to be the Flashblocker extension. Turned it off and reloaded Firefox and it then worked.

I recently started having trouble playing soundcloud files after a mandatory Firefox upgrade. I don't have the Flashblocker extension mentioned previously, so there must be another issue. Any suggestions out there? Thanks.

Can you post a link to a page where it isn't working?

To duplicate the issue just visit any page at soundcloud.com with flash for playing a track such as http://soundcloud.com/snoopdogg

Doesn't matter what soundcloud page I go to. It doesn't play. It works find in Internet Explorer, but I don't use IE.
