Hi,
Firefox has, for some reason, stopped showing the video part of .wmv files. Quicktime plays mpeg's and I guess I could set RP to play .wmv but I hate RP. I thought the loss coincided with a Firefox update, but reverting back to Firefox version 1.0.3 (I happened to have the install package for it still) has no effect. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling WMP but no luck there either. A related symptom is that FF wants me to update WMP to at least 7 whenever I try to load a video from netscape news and such. I know that WMP 10 is installed since I installed 10 myself, multiple times now.

Any help?
Drew

OK, new info/problem
I decided to try to update Firefox back up to 1.0.7 as a start and now have another problem. I can't open Firefox at all, not through the icon, speedlaunch icon, start menu, or directly from the folder. I had similar problem before and I think I went back to 1.0.3 that time to solve it.
EDITTED: Had to revert to 1.0.3 again. Completely removing 1.0.3 and installing 1.0.7 has not changed the problem of loading at all. Deleted xpicleanup.dat as directed on the firefox forum website but had no impact. Removed 1.0.7 and reverted to .3.
