I tried what you said, and there's no change. I have used your
suggestion in the past to fix firefox issues, but what's weird is, I
went to linuxjournal.com and the tech tip video didn't display, no
placeholder or anything, but I clicked on the .ogv file format and
that played just fine. Could this just be a matter of my file
associations, to borrow that term from Windows, may be out of synch or
not including whatever association is needed to let java content play
