    Then install Add-on Compatibility Reporter, to disable compatibility check. Keep in mind this will allow to install incompatible add-ons in Firefox, so if you experience any problems, disable it.

    Then go to Mono web site and install the latest Moonlight 4.

    Restart Firefox. You can test your plugin at http://bubblemark.com/silverlight2.html

    This method didn't work with 64bit. The plugin just crashes.

    I have Moonlight working on 64 bit FF 7.0 a1 , I don't know why it would work on 7.0 and not the FF 5.0 stable release.

    Re: moonlight

    Well, I tested on VM, because my host is 32bit. Maybe that was the problem.

    Re: moonlight

    I got the "Failed to install" message when trying to install the plugin from here:

    http://go-mono.com/moonlight/download.aspx

    ... and so then hunted through Synaptic and installed moonlight-plugin-mozilla (2.3.0ubuntu5). As I was waiting, I read that this wouldn't work on 64-bit.

    But to my surprise, it actually worked. Or at least one of the above worked (I didn't actually test after the initial failure message).

    This is on Firefox 5 64-bit: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:5.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/5.0

    Re: moonlight

    I think it's best to wait for an update.

    Re: moonlight

    I was able to get moonlight working in Firefox 5, 64bit 11.04 by removing existing moonlight and all plug ins, installing the Firefox Add-on Compatibility Reporter, then reinstalling the 32bit version of moonlight. 64bit version of moonlight crashed. It seems to be working even without installing the mozilla moonlight plugin.

    Re: moonlight

    Hi,

    Been banging my head against a wall trying to do this for several days, found the solution here:

    http://syntacticsugar.nl/2009/06/19/...t-codecs-pack/

    Only difference being that I could not get the codecs to install until I went to a page with a moonlight video - firefox them prompted me to install automatically. Used the following:

    Cheers,

    Re: moonlight

    you can also disable Firefox compatibility check if you want to use Firefox 6. Then you can still use the current version of moonlight on Firefox 6
