I need to install silverlite in order to use the ATI testing system on my computer. ATI testing is provided by the university where I work and I need silverlite on my computer to open it completely. When I click the install icon for silverlite, it asks me if I want to download the file. I have downloaded the file at least 20 times and nothing else happens. Help please.

I do use the latest version of FF. but today the older version was wiped out. This seems to happen frequently,, but I've been able to find a version of 52.2.1

Today I can't seem to locate this version.

BTW: The work software requires Silverlight. There's a bug somewhere, as the Silverlight "Can't be found and needs to be installed". But the new version of FF states Silver is already installed.

Yes, I know - the work software is horrible and is the problem!

I want to watch Netflix and refuse to use a different Brwoser than Firefox. So Here's the problem: After correctly uninstalling silverlight and reinstalling it again, Netflix keeps giving me the notification that silverlight needs to be installed, although it is. I have uninstalled Firefox clean and installed it again. I went in the internet up and down and did everything, like the microsoft fixing tool, I checked if everything is up to date, I literally did everything! When I keep browsing for solution, I see that on some websites it advices me to check my addons -> Plugins and select silverlight. Now, I do remember seeing Silverlight there plenty times, but it isn't there anymore at all, it's completely missing! Please help me!

Firefox version 52 ESR Win XP OS. Silverlight plug-in stopped working just yesterday on Netflix and my Win XP Pro OS. I have uninstalled the older version and downloaded the correct version I need 5.1.4.1.2 and it is installed but still doesn't work with Netflix. I cannot find in the registry Netflix and Silverlight permission to run the plug in. This is a problem and needs to be fixed. I don't have the money or means to upgrade my OS at this time. I have no tv either. I have been in contact with Microsoft and Netflix and they determined that the problem lies with Mozilla. I cannot use any other browser as Chrome does not work with Netflix and Win XP either due to unable to update WidevineCdm on XP.

Using firefox to watch video such as amazon prime content causes the fans on my macbook to run obnoxiously compared to Safari for some reason. I don't get it. Why? Same video in both browsers using the same plugin causes very different results.

I use XRG app to watch the temps and stuff like fan speed.

Safari running the videos uses a good amount of CPU (~70% - 90%) and CPU die temp of 71C, where Firefox will run the CPU clear up to the 150%+ range and a die temp of 85+C. The second I stop the video, I see the case temps (sensor1,2,3) start to drop pretty quickly. Is there a different version of Silverlight for firefox that is different from Safari's? I'm stuck with Silverlight for the Amazon Prime stuff.

Pretty much, video in Firefox sends the case temps to somewhere around 39-42C, nothing crazy, but with the die temps, enough to kick the fans up to the 3500-4000 rpm range watching the videos.

Safari on the other had shows case temps around 30-32C and fans that sit steady at 1999- 2048 rpm watching the videos.

Trying to play a video on Amazon, I get the following message:

Microsoft Silverlight is not installed Install the free Silverlight plug-in; it will just take a minute. Please refresh this page when the installation completes. If you have issues after installing, restart your browser and try again. If the issue persists, try using our new HTML5 video player on Chrome, Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1 or later, Microsoft Edge or Opera.

If I'm reading this correctly, Amazon can play videos natively in the latest versions of Chrome, IE, Edge, or Opera, but requires an extra plug-in (Silverlight) to work in Firefox. Is that right? Is there something wrong with FF? Or something wrong with Amazon?

If it makes a difference, I'm running FF 53.0.3. And the video played just fine once I installed Silverlight.

When I visit the "Check Your Plugins Page" here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/

It shows that that I Silverlight 5.1.404160, and shows it as "Up to Date."

That version has been out of date since the release of Silverlight 5.1.40728.0 back on August 11, 2015. That update fixed a vulnerability that allowed remote code execution!

Even that has been superseded by Silverlight 5.1.40905.0, released September 29, 2015.

So, why does your "Check Your Plugins" page report that an old vulnerable version of Silverlight is up to date?

After updating to the new version 41.0.1, silverlight has been crashing many times throughout the day for several days in a row now. Yesterday for example, I sent at least 24 crash reports to Firefox. So last night I went back to version 40.0.3. So far I have had no silverlight plugin-in crashes yet. Is any IT or contributors aware of this problem? I need Firefox to be reliable for what I do for a living. This is not reliable.

After version of 41.x.x we have notice that Silverlight application get hang and crash very often (few times per day). There is no way to replicate it ... it happened from time to time without any reason visible from our side. Before it worked well. So, users work inside our Silverlight application, and then from time to time browser return crash report (or on some users it just crash). For those which get crash report, looks like uploaded picture.

Morning - Amazon Prime videos do not work in Firefox. I can watch the trailers okay, so Silverlight does work, but not the feature films. I have uninstalled Silverlight several times, once with Revo, checked all settings & permissions, etc. The Silverlight plug-in shows as active in the top left screen icon but the video does not run.

After trying IE & Edge (which I hated having to do), it works there except I cannot get HD because of 'HDCP'... *sigh*... Still, that's not a Firefox issue. Just venting.

AAAAAAAAAAAaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrghhhhhhhh.

There, did it again.
