Thanks.

I don't use Firefox 10, that much. Could you give me a MySpace link, and when did the problem start (i.e. with which Firefox version)?

Since I was using Chrome, for my original answer, I opened Firefox 10.0.2. I selected this YouTube song and it worked fine.
I checked Tools/Options/Contents, and found that Shockwave Flash Object had Use Flash in Firefox.
I am using Flash 11.1.102.62, the latest version.

Here is one link:
http://www.myspace.com/joesnellingmusic ... t-81032564

There have suddenly been so many versions during the last year, I am not sure when it started.

You said that Youtube worked fine, but I am not having any problem with Youtube.

I too, have the latest Flash version.

By the way, what version of FF do you use?

Thanks.

Sorry, I misread your post. Indeed the Myspace player is doing some funny stuff, and I don't like to deal with things that I don't understand. In first place, it appears that it is necessary to login. Using Facebook seems to be an option, but Myspace seems hellbent in taking over my Facebook account. I don't trust Facebook as it is, and I trust even less Myspace, in view of this. Another option would be to download individual "tracks" using my Real Player Browser Record Plugin, but nothing happens. Finally, the site alleges that I need a Flash version which I have, and the the so-called Adobe Flash download is not from Adobe. I smell rotten seafood!
I have Firefox 10.0..2. I will try Google Chrome, when I can, and see if it is a Firefox issue, or is it a Myspace, or something else.

This answer was in the first link thread. Apparently, Myspace does not like programs which do not have a flash file in the program, somewhere. Firefox and Seamonkey go outside, and use Flash directly. That's not the case with Chrome and IE. Myspace urged me to login, or go through Facebook, but I have not bothered doing that. One does not have to login Myspace to play music, using Chrome, and, probably IE.
Since, I do not even know if it would work, I am not pursuing the matter any further.
To me, it seems to be a combination of issues, and Myspace seems to be the worst culprit.

I got it! I signed up to Myspace, and I am listening to music, now, using FF11. It will not work, unless I login!
