Using my IE7 browser I can listen to the BBC live.
Using my Firefox browser I cannot listen to the BBC live.
Could someone tell me how to get the Firefox browser to accept the BBC.
Thank you for your time - Ian

Do you get any sort of message or does it just freeze?

Could it be cookies or your default player?

Dont know the answer,but i listen ok with Firefox.It may need a plugin,but it usually tells you if it does.

Laurie53 - Thank you - the only message I get states "Transferring date from www. bbc. co.uk" but it never finishes transferring the data.
I can listen to previous days, but not listen live.

tullie - thank you, but I don't think that it is that as I can listen to previous days.

If you're having problems listening live with the IPlayer interface, the problem is Flash. Download the Firefox version, close Firefox, install Flash, open Firefox. click here

brundle - Thank you for that, but it still doesn't solve the problem

Do you have Realplayer or Realplayer Alternative installed? Does live radio work if you choose Dial Up Modem Version: On?

I can use Firefox to listen to BBC Radio (I have the BBC iPlayer installed), although 99 per cent of the time I use my system's Freeview PCI TV card.

I'm using the iPlayer right now to listen to Suzy Bogguss on the Bob Harris show:

I've been a big fan of Suzy for nearly 20 years and saw her live in Morecambe in the early 1990s.
