    HI, I've got a PC with Windows XP on it, and I'm using Netscape 7.2.
    I've tried repeatedly to download and install Shockwave and Flash from
    Macromedia, and it always appears to download, I save the installers in
    my Downloads folder, the install says it downloads to my Netscape
    plugins folder, and yet, I still can't access shockwave or flash content
    on websites. I keep getting the broken filmstrip link. If I open the
    same site in Mozilla's Firefox, I have the same problems, since it's so
    similar to Netscape. Now, if I open it in IE, I can usually access it.
    So, I know my computer can handle the content, but these browsers seem
    to be a different story.

    So, any clues out there how I can make sure my plugins are actually
    being accessed when I go to a page requiring them?



    Peace, Love and Rock & Roll,

    Kailin
