    FireFox tells me additional plugins are needed to display all the info on the forum pages. What plugins are needed and what info am I not seeing without them?

    It happens on the thread page, where I see the text of the articles.

    Beats me. I don't have Flash installed here, and it doesn't ask for it.

    I abandoned FF as my everyday browser several months ago when they were afflicted with a case of the galloping stupids. (Coming out with a new version every month, and breaking all of the plugins every time.)

    I told it not to use the Flash uploader. (The purpose of the Flash uploader is to upload multiple files simultaneously, which isn't of any particular use in this forum.)
