(SuSE 9.1) Firefox 1.0 has broken BBC listen again

I use the listen again feature of the BBC Radio websites quite a lot. With firefox, it worked well, clicking on the listen again link would cause the bbc site to moan about not having real player, but then Kaffine would open up would work flawlessly.

Since upgrading to firefox 1.0 PR, the link with kaffiene is somehow broken, since it wont load, and I am left with the bbc error message.

I installed helix 10, but this doent seem to work either. I cant find a way of associating kaffiene with firefox for the playing of streaming audio/video.

SuSE has all its plugins in /usr/lib/browser-plugins

try to use this as plugins directory. Rename plugins in Firefox home directory and create symbolic link to /usr/lib/browser-plugins

ln -s /usr/lib/browser-plugins plugins
