See my previous response to Craig White.  I did, and it just goes 
away exactly as if I'd clicked the close firefox x when clicking 
on that video.  I'll try it on another site.  But first I saved 
the script that would be exec'd, and it appears the video is in .asx 
format, whatever the hell that is (later, according to about:plugins 
its a windows media player thingy).  Its a National Geographic site.  
I didn't find any other movie links quickly.  Anybody got a known 
good source for an .asx file to test this with?  Maybe on an M$ 
site in Redmond?
Humm, good google test search ".asx test video".  Found some test 
files by golly, but another thought just crossed my mind, I was 
watching tvtime, which should be a separate application totally 
AFAIK, but since it also uses the system audio, I've shut it down. 
Now for the tests: They are at
 <http://yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialMimeTypesAndApplications.html>

Humm, the test files, all 3 of them are "404 not found", then 
I note at the bottom of the left column there are legal issues.
fscking loverly.  So I backed out to the google results and 
clicked on the next link down which is called 'streaming video 
test page', and firefox goes away instantly.  well, maybe 200 
milliseconds total after the click.

 And again without any message whatsoever.

Are any of the above known to be laced with hemlock tea?

Now I notice that quite a few of those are javascript and GTK2 Widgets gizmos.
I have these installed:
compat-wxGTK-common-2.4.2-21.fc6
wxGTK-2.6.3-2.6.3.2.3.fc6
wxGTK-gl-2.6.3-2.6.3.2.3.fc6
compat-wxGTK-2.4.2-21.fc6

Do I need anything else?

A grep for java in the rpm -qa output shows about 2 screensfull 
of assorted java stuff, the most enlightening of which is that 
the java installed is what, 3 years old?  1.4.2? Good grief.  
I also note that java isn't listed above.

On inspecting the various java directories in /usr/lib, they are all empty!

Why so many versions, and why are they all empty?

And, better yet, whats the procedure to fix it?  
I have a copy of the jre-1.5.0.6 archive on the other drive
I could probably install, but I hear its done differently
these days.

Your turn & many thanks, Les.
