This is not my page.
It's a page found on the internet.
The JavaScript plays fine in IE but not in Firefox.
I wonder if it is a setting or problem I have with my own version of Firefox or if it is using certain forms of JavaScript that only IE understands.
Thanks!

Huh, your right, it doesnt play in firefox for me either. IE is fine. I'd much prefer it the other way round though :P IE is a pain.
If you find out why it doesnt, report back please ;)

It appears you need the Apple QuickTime Plug-in for that to work. thus meaning its attempting to probably stream the video rather then download it

Nothing wrong with your FF on that one. The script appears to require vml, which is primarily available only in IE. I can only say for certain that it branches on the availability of the document.all method available in browsers like IE and Opera. FF does not support document.all, so is excluded from the main code of the script. It works in Opera 9.25 too though, which may or may not also have vml support. It could work in FF, but I believe a major rewrite would be required.
