Web pages retrieved by Feedreader do not permit the
opening of links, such as to play the intended audio
or video. E.g., from NPR.org, you pick the RSS feed;
no joy to hear the link sent by RSS. I have the
latest version of Feedreader, WinXP Pro, SP2 and
all updates. IE, latest version is default, Foxfire
in reserve. The RSS feeds come through OK in the
first instance, and the initial linked web page comes
OK inside Feedreader when "Read On" is clicked. BUT,
WHEN LINKS INSIDE THE INTERNALLY DISPLAYED WEB PAGE
ARE CLICKED, such as for a video or audio play (NPR
links, for one, but this is true of any web page
link) the following message is displayed in a pop up
window: "The displayed Web-Page is about to open
a Popup-Window". Too bad, because the next web page
never does open. Instead, the local hard drive
folder "C:\Documents and Settings\user" opens for a
nano-second, then displays a minimized tab at the
bottom of the window. This is useless. The audio and
video features of my system work just fine if they
are accessed manually from a web page obtained
indepently of Feedreader running. But, that is the
whole purpose of Feedreader, so as not to fumble
around in a separate browser, copying links
manually. What can be done so that enclosed browser
window in Feedreader opens the displayed links for
audio or video in a new window, as the Feedreader
popup window invites??? Thanks.

    This happens the the admin priveledge level is set
    at "user". We would like to see it changed as well.
