    security key required..by Firefox?


    Hi

    I am new to the forums and looking for help on an annoying problem that has only developed since I applied the win 10 may update. I use the firefox browser and check emails by using a password manager to open outlook in the firefox browser. Before the update outlook just opened, but now I get a message asking for a security key. This is odd as I do not use the security key feature. even odder is that the message says it originated from firefox. I can still get to my emails but now have to cancel the warning message, then select back on the next box, and then input my email and finally my password. I know windows are pushing the new security key feature but this seems very user unfriendly and of course it may also be firefox causing the problem.
    I would be grateful for any advice. Thank you all.

    :)

    New Windows Media Player Plugin for Firefox

    Anyone who uses Windows Vista and Mozilla Firefox may be pleased to hear that the Windows Media Player team has now released a plugin for Firefox that should allow the browser to play WMP content on websites. Here are the steps to get it working:
    • Installation of the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin may require administrative access to your PC. It is recommended that you close all other open browser windows before continuing with the installation.
    • Click the Install button to automatically download and install the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin.
    • Depending on your security settings, you may see a Security Warning dialog box. Click Install to install the plugin.
    There is a known issue if you are using Firefox version 2.0.0.3 on Windows Vista with the installer failing with error code -203. To work around this simply restart Firefox (you will get a notification that Windows Vista will be changing the Firefox compatibility settings) and then install again - the second time should succeed.

    The download is available here, and the new plugin works on all versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista (although it is mostly intended for Vista, as that currently has no WMP support in Firefox).
