Default New Firefox Question

Thanks for the help so far. I got the flash player taken care of. However, I have another question.

All MP3 files open up just fine (typically with WMP). Shortly after clicking them my WMP opens up and plays them. However, if I click directly to a Windows Video file, it ask me if I want to open it with Window Media Player, when I click yes, it starts to show the download progress. My WMP will not automatically activate. I can only play the file after the entire file has downloaded. Any idea on how to change this? I think that the problem exist specifically with Window Media Video files.

Thanks for the help,

Make sure that WMP is set as the default player for Windows Video files.

You can also right click the file, click "Open With..." then click "Choose Program..." and select WMP, then check the box that says "Always use the selected program to open this type of file" then click ok and you're good.
