    Opening an elp file made a few months ago, now crashes Firefox where it has an embedded video. When trying to create a new elp file and embedding video from youtube or vimeo, it also crashes Firefox and says that exe is not responding. I am using Mac OSX 10.6.8 and Firefox 5.0.1 We are using eXe in a course and several students are reporting this problem as well.
