But when I go to msnbc.com and try to play a video it says that I need Windows Media 10 or Windows Media Player and the install is only for IE. Now this wasn't a problem before Windows media 10 came out and I was wondering that, even though this is definently a Microsoft problem, if there was a workaround or a fix to it. I e-mail msnbc.com but no reply and I think that if firefox made a workaround it would really help in the category of not all pages working properly with firefox.
