The url for that infomercial causes Firefox to hang in an endless loop and displays the quicktime media player symbol in the center of the web page without fully loading the page. When that happens I have to revert to IE 6.0 to view the commercial and get the cookie that allows me to read Salon for that day ( within IE 6.0). Other Salon Sponsor infomercials run ok so far within Firefox. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. go to www.salon.com 2. click on any news article or major story 3. scroll down to the text " Want to read the whole article? You have two options: Subscribe now, or watch a brief ad and get a free day pass. If you're already a subscriber log in here." message. scroll down and look for the sponsor's name in the right pane and if its GE click on the GE symbol or the name and try to view the infomercial.

Just tried to access Salon on 22 OCT 2004 and was redirected to view the infomercial of a different Salon sponsor and got the same error when trying to download from this link: http://cache.ultramercial.com/c/flash_detection.swf?flashC I suspect probably all infomercials from ultramercial.com will not load properly in Firefox.
I'm having this problem with WinXP. Salon.com home page doesn't load because of this. A showstopper for me, as I'm a regular reader.
works for me in firefox 1.4 and mozilla 1.7.12 on windows xp. Do you have images or cookies blocked? If you are using Firefox, do you have extensions installed? Marking works for me for now. Please reopen if you can reproduce and can answer the above questions and give exact steps to reproduce.

I'm having the problem with Firefox 1.5 beta 1 with WinXP, with the following extensions installed: Spellbound 0.7.3 and Spellbound Win32 Components 0.8.0. I don't have images or cookies blocked. I don't have permissions to change the status of this ticket back to opened.
(In reply to comment #6) Keith, please try again with Spellbound disabled. You can disable your extensions by starting in safe mode. See the Start->Programs->Firefox menu in Windows or start it from the command line with -safemode as an argument. How did you install Firefox 1.5b1? Did you install it into the same directory as Firefox 1.0.x? or install it into its own directory? What plugins do you have installed? You can see the list by typing about:plugins in the URL bar. You see this just going to http://www.salon.com/ ? That is the only step required to reproduce this for you?
