For those of you out there breaking your teeth trying to get Foxnews.com to work on your Linux FireFox...
Your pains are over...
(I am considering you guys installed Flash already...if not let us know)

Here's what it takes...

The Sound Fix's:
Code:

vim /etc/firefox/firefoxrc

change this:
Code:

#FIREFOX_DSP="none"
FIREFOX_DSP=”aoss”

then install this...(below is a Debian type install...you mite need to grab your distros package)
Code:

apt-get install alsa-oss


The Video Fix's:
Install the firefox add-on "greasemonkey" from:
http://greasemonkey.mozdev.org/

Then install the FoxNews Friendly Video script from the greasemonkey site:
(click on "Install this Script" on the top left corner)
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/1371

reopen your browser, click:
http://www.foxnews.com/
...and voila!
