Embedded media players in Firefox


As of this year, Firefox does not plan to quit upgrading their Media Player software.  There is a new WMP (Windows Media Player) plugin for Windows XP and above.  You should visit hg.mozilla.org to ensure you have the latest embedded WMP version.

There are a few different ways to open tabs on Firefox. Here are some examples:

1. Right Click- when you're on a webpage and want to go to another link but open in a separate tab-right click on the link and click 'new tab'. It will redirect you to a new page in a different tab.

2. Tab Menu- right click on a black part of the tab bar (right of the address bar) and click new tab.

Running Firefox in your RAM memory will speed up the connection.  Here are the steps to do so:

1. Download and save portable Firefox

2. Download RAMdisk and save it to the same location

3. Open the RAMdisk folder and install it

4. Configure RAmdisk and create batch files

Embedded media players in Firefox


What an embedded media player means is that the media player is embedded or inserted directly into the web page. One example is an embedded Windows Media Player. To achieve this, Windows Media Player must be installed on the computer. If the user, for some reason, has Windows Media Player disabled, the embedded Windows Media Player on the web page will not work.

Below is an example of a set of codes to embed Windows Media Player on a web page:

<object id=”MediaPlayer” width=”192″ height=”190″ type=”video/x-ms-asf”>
<param name=”FileName”value=”videofilename.wmv”>
<param name=”autostart” value=”false”>
<param name=”ShowControls” value=”true”>
<param name=”ShowStatusBar” value=”false”>
<param name=”ShowDisplay” value=”false”>
<embed type=”application/x-mplayer2″ src=”videofilename.wmv” width=”192″ height=”190″ ShowControls=”1″ ShowStatusBar=”0″ ShowDisplay=”0″ autostart=”0″ />

Embedded Windows Media Player

If Mozilla Firefox stops unexpectedly while it is being upgraded, just force close it from the Windows Task Manager since there is no way to terminate the process in its current state. Press CTRL + SHIFT + ESC to bring up the Task Manager then select “Processes” tab.

Kill Mozilla Firefox from the Task Manager

In there, look for “firefox.exe”, select it, and then click “End Process” or press “DEL” or “Delete” on your keyboard to terminate it. Click “Yes” when you are prompted. After this, try upgrading Mozilla Firefox again. If it fails as a result of the crash, uninstall Mozilla Firefox. Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware 2.0.0. Follow the instructions to download and unpack and then install it.

Once installed, run Revo Uninstaller. Select Mozilla Firefox from the list then click “Uninstall”. Follow the instructions to complete the process. After uninstalling, install the latest version of Mozilla Firefox.
