Hello - I downloaded the latest TenFourFox (24.4.0) for my G5 tower last week and attempted to load the SirusXM internet player (https://player.siriusxm.com/#/player/live). I got through the login/password process and the player loaded even though it's driven by Adobe Flash. Everything seemed to be working fine (I could switch music channels and navigate all the controls/preferences). The only downside was that I had no sound, which I believe is one of the most important aspects of having internet radio... :)
Has anyone else tried to load the SiriusXM internet radio interface in TenFourFox (and been successful in hearing music)?

Thanks!

    Hello, sorry to repot that if SiriusXM needs Flash (which it does; 'Flash 11.1 and up' as stated in the system requirements) it won't work with TenFourFox. I guess they have a normal HTML web player, and Flash is used only for the actual audio to secure it with DRM.

    Thanks Chris. Wonder if the older TenFourFox (v.17?) which did support flash would work. I might give that a shot as a test. (BTW, I'm running the hacked PPC Flash 16, which works well with the other browsers I'm running, but still no luck with SiriusXM with those browsers + Flash as well). - Bill.

    I have a Flash "18.x" plugin which is 10.x in reality. Tried it in Safari, Flash failed to initialize. Probably needs something that was introduced in Flash 11.
