Why Does Flash/Firefox/my computer Hate Me?
« on: April 04, 2007, 08:49:54 PM »

I missed LOST tonight.  Sad  Don't ask.  I'm mad as hell, and not in a very good mood right now.

I go to abc.com/lost, etc.  ........ I get a blue screen.  It says, you need to download/install Macromedia Flash.  OK.  I figure it's a "No Script" deal.  I click on, and "allow" all of the things.  Nothing. Sad

I download flash from the website.( I already got Macromedia Flash!! Angry  I know it, you know, the whole world knows it!)  I get "download successful".  Go back to abc.com.  Same *feces*!

Ok.  I just wanna see the episode, and now, I'm even more pissed, at the others who didn't let me watch it live in the first ****** place!  AARRGGHH!!!!  Damn,  I'm pissed!

I open IE.  Same *feces*!!!!  WTF?  I can go to YouTube, Ebaumsworld, etc. and everything plays fine.  What is the problem?

(If I need to, How do I clear the history/cache on Firefox?)

Tools > Clear Private Data or Ctrl+Shift+Del. And never seen Firefox spelled like that before. Grin

Try hopping in your wayback machine, set it for 2:15 ago, and watch it the way it was intended- on TV.  Devil  Shocked

Ah. Then I fart in your general direction.

Now.  On to to the subject at hand......At hand!, Not, it hand, seeing how it is late at night on the internets.

Just checked abc.com and I'm getting video content to load just fine in FF, but it's telling me that tonight's episode of LOST isn't actually available until tomorrow. So in other words, I really can't help you. Have you checked for updates in FF?

I think in order to see that media, you need to download Macromedia Flash Player, or something.

if it wont play in either IE or FF  then 99.9% likely  there's something corrupt in your flash player installation or the registry

Sorry you missed the show. A ton of questions were answered last.  Poke

More to the point of your issue.....I don't think you would have been able to see it anyway. From my understanding the episodes aren't available until the next day.

Have you tried today yet?
