Check for update

  • Remove and install "web sling player" plugins

Question owner

There doesn't appear to be a way to "Remove" plugins, only disable them. In any case I installed an older version, then reinstalled the latest version but no luck. Web sling player works with Safari on the same computer but not with Firefox.

Are you in safemode?

Question owner

No. It used to work fine, but I think either the latest Firefox or sling player update broke something.
