What to do if a Silverlight media player from your website isn't visible in Firefox or another web browser based on Firefox.


If you have inserted a Silverlight object to your website, but you can't watch it on Mozilla Firefox, the problem occurs due to an error in the HTML code. To fix the problem, we must edit a line of this code.

How to fix it?

To fix the problem do the following:

  1. Open the page where we have inserted the player with a web page editor.
  2. We look at the section of the code, and add a comma "," at the end of the string data in this line that we can see in all HTML code (it should be as shown here)
    <object data="data:application/x-silverlight-2," type="application/x-silverlight-2" width="864" height="468">

  3. Save the changes and see the site.

Web browsers where this problem occurs

This problem can also occur in browsers based on Firefox as Flock, Iceweasel, etc., which may happen on Windows, Mac OS, or Linux (installed Moonlight). Flock 3 is based in Chrome so this will not happen, but yes in previous versions.
