    Hi All,

    I thought I'd ask here before the Firefox forums as I've done a search there and couldn't find anything - and trust you lot more than a bunch of strangers!

    I'm trying to launch a streaming live radio station from www.xfm.co.uk (the London one - have a listen, it's an excellent station) from the latest Firefox and get this error message in a new window:

    var listen_live_on = new Image(); listen_live_on.src = '../Skin/

    MediaManagerPlayer error '800a005b'

    Object variable or With block variable not set

    /player/NonScripted/container.asp, line 23


    Doing the exact same thing in IE6 is fine (always has been) - i.e. the new window opens OK and music is there, so it must be a browser issue. Any ideas how to fix it?

    Cheers.

    can't say for sure, except that Firefox has just completed a 2.0.0.5 update, and on my machine disabled the Java console in Firefox.

    here's the contact info for xfm London
    http://www.xfm.co.uk/contactus.asp?b=none&t=none

    they prob'ly would be your best source for fast help!

    @ ahhaa & Noahtuck: Hmm... I'm on v2.0.0.5 too.

    Emailing Xfm was my first port of call - and no reply, still not working.

    I disabled the "No Script" add-on (v1.1.6.02 - blocks java, unless I allow it), closed and re-opened FF and still the same. There's an option in "No Script" to play a sound when it blocks java - with this enabled there's no sounds when the pop-up window opens.

    UPDATE: Here's what I did to get it working:

    * In Tools -> Options -> Privacy tab: added mediaweb.musicradio.com as "Allowed" in "Exceptions" list for cookies.

    Thanks for confirming it works for you, it spurred me on to figure out how.

    Cheers, Daamon.

    A bit more info that might be of use...

    In IE6 the pop-up window contains the volume and mute controls:



    But in Firefox it doesn't:



    However, in Firefox right-clicking on the black horizontal bar where the changing text and time appears gives you Play, Stop and Volume (Up, Down and Mute).
