I have it and it was automatically disabled. There are day's MS just pisses me off. And MS wonders why Apple keeps gaining market share. 10 years ago Apple had about 5% now i see they have about 10% small gain but it is a gain.

As I was reading this Firefox popped up a box saying they were disableing them. At least Firefox moved on it.

...the Microsoft DRM Plugin while we're at it?   LOL?

 

Take an OS, and edit out all the efficiency, and what you have left is a post-XP Microsoft operating system :)

It looks as if Mozilla jumped on the issue rather quickly: http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/6305/21321t.png

It seems that I have that plug in. Thanks for the info as it's now disabled.

I'll have to double check if I have it.  I'm guessing not since .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 has been failing to install with an unknown error...

Well, apparently I have been missing out!  I don't seem to have that particular plug-in.
