    I have Jet Audio installed (the basic free version because I am too cheap
    to do otherwise) and it plays the stream from the station's first option
    just fine. The second option plays fine from WMP.

    I tried that and Winamp, and neither can be found by FF. Do you have an
    association set in FF that I don't have?

    it should automatically open wmp within the browser.
    If its not for you, then you have something wrong. Try
    installing the wmp FF plugin:
    http://port25.technet.com/pages/wind...-download.aspx

    if that fails, then save the listen.pls.xpl file to
    your hard drive, then from wmp, click on File, Open
    File, and open that file.

    Well, if there is an association inside FF then it was done automatically.
    IIRC JetAudio was installed sometime before I ever tried FF. Honestly, I'd
    expect that the association would be a function of the operating system
    rather than FF and that it would be based upon the file extension.

    Punt if You do not know how to edit one of those Resource Description
    Files. However, You could try renaming and let Fx build a new file as you
    progressively encounter different file types on the web.

    OK. Step-by-step.

    1) GOTO http://www.whyy.org/91FM/live.html

    2) Click on the top "Listen>>" link

    3) Get a pop-up: "Opening listen.pls

    You have chosen to open listen.pls which is a M3U file from
    http://207.245.67.204.
    What should Firefox do? (Default is "open with WMP")

    4) Click OK, "Downloads" pane opens and shows that listen.pls.xpl is
    being downloaded. Also, WMP opens but says that it doesn't recognize the
    xpl extension.

    5) Click OK to have WMP try to play it. Popup says WMP cannot play it.

    6) Close WMP
