Often when I try to enter a site (often music) I get a message saying "The Plugin Is Disabled" and another saying "Manage Plugins" When I click on this my Firefox plugins page comes up and all available plugins are marked as "enabled". What is the problem here?

I tried your suggestions guys but the problem was still there. Received various messages including one that said I had no plugins! Finally went into Firefox/help/add-ons. All were enabled. I went through all one-at-a-time, disabling each one and trying to connect again. If problem was still there I enabled it again the tried the next one. Eventually I found the culprit...Shockwave Flash 11.1.102.62. This is now disabled and everything's working fine. Thanks to you both for your help.

Pleased you solved it - that information was on the link I sent you

If you are having problems with pages that use plugins (such as Flash, Windows Media Player, Java, and more)

This article describes how to troubleshoot plugins. If you are having a problem with an extension or theme, see Troubleshooting extensions and themes. For general information on plugins, see Using plugins with Firefox.


Table of Contents

On the page at which it opens, have you NOW continued on that page with the problem solving as you will need shockwave flash for other applications
