The Cnet homepage is working, but you can't display the video content because you need to download the latest plugins. Unlike Internet Explorer, some of the plugins are not included with the original installation of Firefox, and you will be prompted to download them as needed. This is such a case.
A yellow notification bar should have appeared at the top of the browser window with a green button on the right hand side that says ''install plugins.'' Click that, then let the wizard download and install the updates for you. (Make sure you are on an administrative account, or this may malfunction.) Once the plugin has been installed, try refreshing the page or closing the browser and opening it again. The content should then appear as it did with IE6.
Hope this helps,
P.S. you will probably face this again when you try to play online games (such as Yahoo, Pogo, etc), at which time you will have to install Java.
Hey, I'm running Windows XP with SP2 and I just installed mozilla/firefox. When i navigate to the CNET homepage, instead of the video and box that contains images for the top stories, I get text and a message about installing macromedia flash. Any idea how to get the old cnet homepage back?
