How can I get WMP to work with Firefox 2.0?

When I open a page to watch a video with WMP, it comes up with the green puzzle piece saying I need to download a plugin. So I click on it and it says "No suitable plugins found." The thing is, I already have WMP on my computer, so how do I get it to work with Firefox 2.0? Thanks.

I didn't have that problem but just download WMP 11 if you haven't already. I used to use Firefox but I switched back to IE 7 because it has all the same features and the embeded WMP videos actually work. WHen I used Firefox it was like zoomed in for the embeded videos.

i got addicted to firefox because the way it saves my passwords... and it will show me what the password actually is. Also I have the adblock pluggin which totally owns noobs. No "HELLOOOOO" ads on myspace! YES.

You could always just copy and paste the link into ie7...

Can somebody give me a link comparing IE 7 and FF 2? I can't decide if I want to switch back to FF or not.

FF ftw. Much faster, easier, safer, adblock. This whole WMP thing is the only thing I didn't like about it, but now that its all fixed I love it.

Actually nothing is true other than I would agree with the faster part, except for on startup since IE's resources start up with Windows anyways..

However, that other stuff... I wouldn't believe it just because everybody says... prove it with a legit source/link.

All I did was install the WMP for NETSCAPE version from MS's website. None of that other crap needed.
