Sorry for my ignorance, but I've checked the site you gave me and it worked correctly with Mozilla Firebird. I don't remember installing Shockware plugins, but I did, installed flash. Would that be the same thing? Because if it is, you can get it from here:

Lycka till...

There is a codeweavers product "crossover" ( see <> ) which will run Windows pluggins in linux mozilla using the 'wine' technology. There currently want US$34.94, which they say they use to supprot continued development of wine.

There's no Shockwave plugins for Linux (whatever browser)... perhaps those who need it should lobby to Macromedia?
