Bill Mason, why did you mark this a dup of bug 53532?  The two bugs have
different test URLs, different test procedures, different expected and actual

Component: JavaScript Engine → Plug-ins

Duplicate or related to bug 56532 ?
Active X plugin?  I'll let someone else mark this a dup of bug 56532.  Bill
Mason clearly meant to dup it against that bug and just typo'd 6 as 3 -- he
should feel free to re-dup.

I don't think this is related to 56532. I have the same problem. Note that this
was not a problem until I upgraded to 1.6. Live365 worked just fine under 1.5.
It remains a problem under 1.7b.

Note that the error described occurs when the RealPlayer option in Live365 is
selected. When MP3 is selected, which runs Winamp, I get a different behavior,
where the Javascript error does not occur, Winamp starts, but does not have a
connection to the server and does not play.

It works just fine under Internet Explorer. (Complete with popunder ads, ick.)
