Google Earth Plugin & Firefox

I’ve had occasional issues getting the Google Earth Plugin to work in the Google Maps used in my Waypoints & Routes Pages when viewed through Firefox.

However the trick to fix it seems to be;

  • Un-install any existing Google Earth Plug-in from Windows
  • Open “Internet Explorer” (NOT Firefox) and navigate to the page requiring the Plugin
  • Install the Plug-in
  • Allow Internet Explorer to use it
  • Confirm it work OK

THEN go to Firefox and the problem should be fixed.
