Works for me. Nightly builds find the Windows Media Player plugin automatically, and I'm just unzipping the Mozilla zip file. I don't have to do anything special. Maybe you installed WMP to an unusual directory on your hard drive.
I have windows media player plugin for netscape, however it says that netscape 6 doesn't support it... <http://www.microsoft.com/…media/download/plugin.asp>
anyways, it works for me.
try enabling View->Always on Top, i think that's when it started to work, strange... or maybe it was just newer version of mozilla. but as far as i remember is started to work for me in one of pre-1.0 versions.
Mozilla only works with WMP 7+, just in case you're running an older version.

Why are (almost) all the bugs targetting 1.2 LDAP-related? Did someone Decide this would be the LDAP-fixing milestone and assigned all old LDAP bugs to this? Was there /nothing/ else they felt like dealing with in this milestone?
My dumb luck it isn't the Courier IMAP fixin' milestone.
#7 Will Moz 1.2 do the same as 1.0 and 1.1......

No matter what I download, I have 1.0 and 1.1, both times, when I double click to install, it does its thing to extract the files, and then I receive an error saying "this copy has a corrupt browser.xpi or so on. Sometimes, I will have 4 or more files .xpi that it says that about. Then it says, please download the file again from a new source. I am downloading the file right from <http://www.mozilla.org.> I will restart my system and it may work, it may not. Why is this happening?

Have you been deleting the old directory (minus the plugins folder) prior to install? The installer doesn't remove the old files first so not all files get replaced if you don't....
#10 I think so, what do you think?

Well, what I do after I use the Mozilla uninstaller is to do a "search" find files in Windows and type MOZILLA. I get 4-6 files, two folders a Mozilla.dll file and so on after I do the search and I delete the files, then try and reinstall, so I should be installing fresh. Do you know of any Mozilla files that get "left over" that I should search for and delete? Other than ones that would be in Mozilla folders?

What issues are you having with Courier IMAP w/ Moz? Mine works fine.
My main gripe had to do with too many open connections.. I have a lot of folders and sooner or later, if you access too many folders, Mozilla and CourierImap loose track of who's on first. Basically, you have to go offline and then back online to see what's in your folders.
Mozilla also seems to have problems with Courier, INBOX.folder notation for folders. Courier wants to put trash, sent, etc within the INBOX namespace, while the display likes to have those folders allongside the indbox namespace, so the defualt IMAP install aloways has to be adjusted to work with Courier-- not too big of a deal but confusing when trying to sell to non-tech people. These problems are worsened when you have more than one IMAP account running. For instance, I have a Exchange IMap account and a Courier Imap account. It doesn't take long for Mozilla to cache too many connections and freak Courier out then ... and it seems to ignore the cached connections cariable in prefs.js then.
I thought these bugs were still active in 1.2 -- I haven't got a notice and I was subscribed to them. Now it looks like they may be fixed !! That would be good news indeed. I guess I'll have to grab the nightly and see what happens.
