    Embedded sound in Firefox?

    I am using Firefox .8 at work and at home... At work, I can hear embedded music in websites but at home I hear nothing. Why is this? It's kind of annoying when I am expecting to hear something but I don't hear anything...

    Firstly, (let's get this out of the way ) did you turn on your speakers at home?

    And after that, are you using the 0.8 release at both places?

    Yep, the speakers are on and loud (the sound worked fine in IE).

    Both places are using .8 which is why this confuses me so much...

    Using The <bgsound> Element

    Internet Explorer supports an element called <bgsound>.

    The purpose of this element is to provide a background sound for a web page:

    <bgsound src="beatles.mid" />

    The code fragment above displays a MIDI file as background music for a web page.

    Click here to try it yourself

    A list of attributes for the <bgsound> element can be found in a later chapter of this tutorial.

    Note: The <bgsound> element is not a standard HTML or XHTML element. It is supported by Internet Explorer only.
    Could be that the developer used <bgsound> instead of another element like <object> or <embed> that would work in Mozilla.

    Both are used. There is the <embed> tag and a <bgsound> tag...

    I'd guess that at work you have a plugin installed which is handling the music, but you don't have it installed at home.

    Type "about:plugins" (without the underscore the the forum inserts) into the address bar at home, and at work, and compare the results.
