Re: IE 8

Quite true.  I don't have Firefox anymore; but, I did indeed hear nothing 
with IE8.

So, how come I don't have Firefox anymore?  Simple.  When I went to:
www.dominos.com
to order a pizza the other night, I was able to fill in the form fine but I 
couldn't see the "place order" graphic link using Firefox.  If anybody using 
Firefox has any way to solve this, I'd be willing to give it another try. 
But,  back to the topic at hand.  When I clicked on the link you gave, for 
sure, no audio prompts what so ever.

Sincerely,
The Constantly BAREFOOTED Ray

 At the risk of beating a dead horse, here's a little experiment you can
try.  First visit the web site below using Firefox.  Then visit it using IE
8.  You will probably hear the embedded Real Player menu prompts just fine
with Firefox, but only silence with IE 8.
