The BBC News Front Page has a ticker that shows the latest headlines. With IE this is presented as a band of text with a button to pause/play and next and previous buttons. With Firefox the ticker shows as several lines of small text with text in place of the buttons for stop, previous item and next item. The news items do change but the presentation is wrong. I had to re-install Firefox recently and am now on a later version than previously when I didn't experience this problem.

On Internet Explorer when you pull up an RSS feed for photobucket it shows you a scroll down list of the photo's. Firefox gives you links that take you to the person's page. In the time it takes me to follow one link I can scroll thru 25 pictures on IE.

Is there a way to fix this??

Thanks,

Michelle

Both of the above plug ins are offered by Firefox. However, I have made several attempts to download and install these plug ins, with no success.

Each time, the browser goes to the Adobe Website. Specifically it states to go to the instructions if installing these plug ins for Firefox. I go to the instructions and they state that these plug ins do not work with Firefox.

My questions, if Firefox is offering these plug ins, why can't I install them.
