    I just upgraded to firefox version 3.0.3 and a message complains that the dimdim plugin is not compatible with this version of firefox.  Apart fromdowngrading Firefox- anyone got any ideas? 
    We always found that Firefox worked much better than Microsoft I.E.

      Search google for forcing xpi install, but in brief this is what solved it for me.

          pull over /usr/local/dimdim/ConferenceServer/apache-tomcat-5.5.17/webapps/dimdim/jsp/activex/3800dimdim.xpi to pc
          rename to .zip. Extract.
          Edit rdf file in root, to replace max version with 4.*
          rezip, rename, copy back.

      It's pretty terrible - the open source version of Dimdim that is currently available is hard-coded to be incompatible with versions of firefox higher than 2.  Tsk.
