First, I installed the latest Firefox just to be sure I was using the same one as Jason. (Ie, 0.93, though it's possible 0.92 would work.) Then I went to... http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/plugin.htm#download where you'll find a table of text and links under a heading saying: "Download the precompiled Plug-in". The link to use is the "Click here" one in the first row of the table, the row labeled: Mozilla 1.7 Does not work in Firefox 0.9 / 0.9.1 Note it's a JavaScript link, so you need to have JavaScript turned on for it to work. (And hence why we can't just give you the link. Grrr!:) It installs automatically if I remember correctly, so after that you should only need to restart Firefox to get things working. If it still doesn't work, try uninstalling the plugin - instructions here... http://www.rebol.net/plugin/tests/plugin-guide.html#section-7 then go to the test page here... http://www.rebol.net/plugin/tests/test.html and see what happens. Older versions of the plugin are supposed to automatically update, but I had problems with one that wouldn't. I think the problem was the URL path one I mentioned in a previous post though, meaning that was why it didn't seem to be working - not because the plugin wouldn't update. Best of luck! -- Carl Read
