Edit: what happened to gator? I remember that being a huge problem years ago, bonzi buddy is something you never hear of either.

i think you can see it in both seamonkey and firefox ... not to mention opera ...

the point is whenever i want to watch these sorts of things its a bit tedious for me and i dont click on everything(nothing to lose actually) but since it was colinstu's thread , so i gave it a try ...


//thanks again ...

What's this got to do with not using Windows?

As far as I can see the answer is "absolutely nothing"!

I used the MediaPlayerConnectivity extension to open the video in MPlayer. It doesn't work at broadband.discoverychannel.ca (my present hate-it-the-most-because-it's-totally-incompatible-junk site), but it worked great for this clip, which was quite a good laugh. There's probably a host of other extensions that do similar jobs.

In those situations, CTRL+W is always better than trying to click the X in the corner. Better yet would be running The Proxomitron and never having to deal with crap like that, ever. Runs on WINE too, but I've since found the NoScript and AdBlock extensions.
