From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win95; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020530 BuildID: 2002053012 Am trying to install the MrSID plug-in from Lizard Tech. I cannot get it to function on the Mozilla browser, although it does function on the Netscape and Explorere browsers. I am not a programmer, just a new user of your browser. Help. What else do you need to know from me? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.download the plug-in and set it up. 2. 3. Actual Results: still didn't work Expected Results: should have worked, since it works with the same Netscape browser
Have you copied the plugin in Mozilal plugin folder ? (Do you see it in help/About Plugins ?)
As just mentioned, you need to make sure that the browser has recognized the plug-in. The easiest way to do that is to go to Help|About Plugins and see if it shows up in the list. If it does not, try shift+reload and see if it shows up. As a last resort, try logging out of all app and reboot. If after all of that and the plug-in does not show up in the plug-ins list, then search your hard drive and look for the associated dll file for the plug-in, copy the dll into the Program Files|Netscape|Netscape|Plugins directory - logout of the browser and back in again, and recheck the About|Plugins page. If the plug-in does not work after all that -- then we do have a bug!
http://www.lizardtech.com/download/?x=2&p=15&o=1&titl=Download%20MrSID%20Browser%20Plug-in Requires: * Internet Explorer 4.0 or greater, or Netscape® navigator 4.5-4.7 under netscape its using smartupdate to install itself doubt that will work in mozilla. this software simply doesnt support mozilla.
using the branch bits from today, the plug-in installed the dll into the 4.x plug-ins dir. Once the .dll was copied into the 7.x plug-ins dir it loaded fine. This would be an install issue with the plug-in.
hehe, their tech support just contacted me and told me the plugin doesnt support netscape6+. they will change the missleading information on the website soon.
