    Need instructions on how to dump the "new" Sling player and return to the "old" player.

      The new Sling player (downloaded today)   for Firefox  takes 3 big steps BACKWARDS.

      - The new Sling player displays UGLY annoying blue rectangles  on the screen, all the time when in full-screen mode.

      - It causes my computer to hang-up and freeze when I access other websites, while the new Sling player is running.

      - The new Sling player uses more memory and more CPU resources,  without   giving any better video.

       

      Please give step-by-step instructions for dumping the "new" Sling player,  and how to return to the "old" Sling player.

      Thanks!

          At least you get blue squares to annoy you....after the update this morning I get absolutely NOTHING!!  Everytime these clowns release new software it doesn't work.  Then I always have to go to the online chat support and eventually some useless pinhead there eventually gets it going again.

           

          So today image my disappointment when I go to the online help and find it is no longer available.  In its place there is only this forum or a help-line where these A-holes have decided to charge $29 to take a help call on a product that worked yesterday and doesn't today because of THEIR actions.  I cannot recommend strongly enough to anyone reviewing this piece of **** to never ever buy anything from Slingbox.....JUNK.

           

          In the meantime if anyone does know how to make the old one work that would be great.
