Does the address of the page use any unusual protocol? For example, does it start with something other than http or https?


The forum software detected your Firefox as version 15. Is that correct?

Version 15 is not secure; Mozilla discloses security flaws after each new release. Is something holding you back from upgrading to Firefox 27? Please let us know so we can suggest solutions or workarounds.

If Help > About Firefox shows Firefox 27.0.1, you may need to clear the preference that is misreporting your version number. See: Websites say that Firefox is outdated or incompatible even though it's the latest version.

I should have said "the address of the download" or whatever the link is that isn't opening.

Does the content open normally in Safari? If so, what application or plugin is used to play the content in Safari?
