    Slingbox player crashing.

    Visibility: Open to anyone

      I have not used my Slingbox since last Oct.  I recently tried a test reconnect and keep getting the message "Slingbox player has crashed"  Prior to connecting to my TV, I had to download "something" and agree to terms of use.  I am using a desktop computer with Windows 7 with Firefox browser. The exact same hardware and software I used last Oct.   It connects to my TV, but after about 30 seconds it crashes.    Please help. Suggestions will be appreciated.  Thanks.

          Hello Blikzum,


          Mozilla recently changed their browser to 64bit only which is conflicting with our 32bit only plugin. We are working with Mozilla to get a permanent fix for this, but in the meantime that have provided us these steps to work around the issue:


          •In the address bar type: "about:config"

          •A message will pop up for dangers of the these options agree to them.

          •Search for "xpinstall.signatures.required". It should have a value of True.

          •Right click on "xpinstall.signatures.required"

          •"Toggle" the value will change to false.

          •Relaunch Firefox

          I hope this helps!!
