Please let me know if you get moonlight working in firefox 5.0. I was trying to apply for a job but I can't even access the website because it utilizes silverlight.
Question Question

Normally, at clicking a video in such websites, it offers you to install Silverlight; accept and it will change in Moonlight offer, follow instructions.

Click any orange link marked "bekijk":

I followed the step-by-step instructions but it gives me a message, "Novell Moonlight could not be installed because it is not compatible with Firefox 5.0"

EDIT: I got it to install into Firefox 4.0, but it doesn't function.

Subject description: plug-in crashes
 

Is there a trick to get Moonlight to work with Firefox. I'm trying to use it to watch a live video stream at
http://www.kptv.com/category/210121/watch-fox-12-live-video-stream?redirected=true

The stream works in Windows but always crashes in Puppy.

Thanks

Hi i'm using my own rexbang build, with Google Chrome 13, installed moonlight and went to site you listed played back fine no issues after it installed its codecs. Ill make a video and post it on my site of how I did it for you.

I think the problem may be that the codecs aren't downloading. I did get it to install in Linux Mint but there the video quality is poor compared to Windows on the site I referenced above. Note that site only runs with live video in the mornings and afternoons Pacific Time, other times its traffic cameras.

I solved my problem with moonlight codecs not downloading by upgrading my video driver from the quickpet menu. Thanks to Icyos for the video proving it could be done. /John

Puppy 525 upgraded to 528 (I guess, not quite clear to me) and Firefox 6.0.

Attempt to install Moonlight for the umptieth time, message: not compatible with Firefox 6.0

You can try 'convincing' Firefox to install extensions it believes aren't compatible with the Add-on Compatibility Reporter extension, or perhaps go into about:config and change extensions.checkCompatibility to 'false'. (You may also need to change extensions.checkUpdateSecurity as well...)

Edit: You may also have a number of entries with the version number at the end of extensions.checkCompatibility (like extensions.checkCompatibility.6.0, extensions.checkCompatibility.6.0a. If that's the case, set them all to 'false', too.

Thank you for your effort.

I did not find the items you mentioned; install attempts killed Firefox twice, first time with automatic re-install at reboot but all settings lost, second time beyond repair. Meanwhile no more Ff 6 in Petget but 7.0 instead, which reluctantly installed. Will not retry for the time being.

If you're in the about:config editor, just type 'extensions.check' in the search bar at the top of the browser pane (below your tabs and the address bar), without the quotes. It should narrow the list down to the entries that begin with, or contain, that text.

Of course, you can also enter as much of any entry as you want ("extensions.checkUpdateSecurity" will bring up only that entry, for example.)

Moonlight now installed in meanwhile updated Ff 7.01 and reads "disabled" and "not compatible".

Clicked everything I saw but did not see "about, config" etc..


Edit: found I must type about:condig in adress field. Saw all lines "extensions.check" already marked "false".

Read plenty about the problem on Web, only "maybe" solutions that might work for some.

Did you try installing the Add-on Compatibility Reporter extension I linked to, above? Normally, it should re-enable all the extensions, even the ones Firefox believes are incompatible. Some people do claim it doesn't work properly for them, though.

Both "reporter" and moonlight killed Firefox twice again and even Skype sfs (strangely) still not fully healed.

Off board now both 2, sick jokes I find them.
