My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together

Problem using Photosynth in Firefox?


I’ve been playing with Photosynth since the first demo was available on the web; it’s a very cool visualisation project from Microsoft Live Labs (info here) and it’s recently gone ‘live’.

It also works under Firefox which is great as I’m a keen FF user, but since the recent updates I’ve not been able to use it under FF, it kept looping round and asking me to install the plug-in.

I also noted that the version I downloaded earlier in the week was 0.2Mb smaller than the build I downloaded today, so assume there have been some bugfixes or a bad build.


After some fiddling, this turned out to be because I had an older version of the plug-in which must have had some problem, I had to disable the older version and it then ran fine, steps to do so are below;


And choose to disable the older version of the plug-in ( leaving 1.1.10683 enabled.


Then try again, no restart required (in my case anyway) and it works perfectly


Hope that helps someone else.
