Flix.co.il is a an Israeli video sharing site, and recently I noticed that when someone links to a movie over there, my Firefox fails to display it, and I have to revert to IE to display. That doesn’t happen that much for me to install the IETab extension. but today, I decided to check what’s going on, and see if a user script can be written to overcome it.
One of the strangest things was that I saw no complaint about it in the Israeli Blogosphere, and I thought that if there was a problem with Firefox support on that site, bloggers would have rant about it, and someone would even write a user script to solve it.
After that was found, it was easy to write a user script that creates that movie Flash <embed> tag if the page failed to do it.
Checking it some more, I saw that if you refresh the page several times the movie start playing. This might be related to the fact that the plaxo.com libraries are loaded in an <iframe>, and the load order might change.
