    O.T. Need help with Mozilla Firefox...

    All,

    Can someone tell me how to set up the Mozilla Firefox web browser so that website mp3 music files will "stream" instead of automatically downloading when I click on them? I have always been able to do this with the Microsoft Internet Explorer, but I want to start using Mozilla exclusively.

    I would appreciate your help. Thanks in advance.

    Regards,

    In Firefox:

    Windows/Linux: Click Tools then Options
    Mac: Click Firefox then Preferences

    Once the Options/Preferences window is open, click on Applications and scroll down to MP3 (there will be more than one, my computer lists 4). Change the Action by clicking on the action for each MP3 type to Always Ask.

    After reading Tony's post warning about new problems with IE, I jumped in to try Firefox for the first time. It's looking OK so far.

    BUT, this advice from CJPro hasn't worked for me. When I go the Applications tab as described here, MP3 isn't on the list. - ??

    I couldn't find it either. I installed the QuickTime player and it works OK except for the fact that it still downloads the mp3 files. It does start playing while the file is downloading. I really don't want to download mp3 files and I still seek a way to "stream" them only. I can do that with Microsoft's Internet Explorer but I want to discontinue use of IE.

    I have it, and I am not sure how it originally got there. I think it happened when I actually played a file with the plugin installed. I will do a little research at the Mozilla site.

    Try this first.

    Then this.

    Do this as well. Go to an MP3 file and right-click on it. Choose Properties and change the "Open with" to Quicktime. That might help give Firefox a clue in what to do.

    If you go to Tools > Options, select the Applications tab and set the action for MP3 to Quicktime Plugin, MP3s should load into the plugin in the browser window.

    Unless the website is specifically set to stream, it won't actually stream but will download the file to your temp folder.

    They can't do this because MP3 is not showing up as an option. The post above is to get Firefox to recognize MP3 as a file needing an application association.

    My own music website is set up to "stream" music but when I click on a file, Mozilla downloads it instead of just playing it. I have configured Mozilla correctly, according to the instructions above and the directions on the Mozilla website.

    Thanks, All. I will keep working with it.
