Ed Doubt this will help, I don't use the embedded video much but was
getting 'plug-in required' for Flash related URLs and I kept asking for
it to be installed but didn't help till I hit a URL calling for it and
that one worked. The plug that got installed was 'Shockwave Flash
9.0r124' but I still now and then get a page with overwritten text and
similar display errors and referring to FF.Tools/Error Console I find
the error listed to be caused by a URL that I don't recognize so I
assume its an ad link or some such. might check it out and block that
link. I didn't try.
