Firefox and Pandora

Postby Mandelbrot » Sun Apr 01, 2012 6:50 pm

Anyone know how to get Pandora to work with Firefox? I tried to follow all of the steps of the Pandora/Firefox Troubleshooting page with the exception of this: "Disable Adblock, Flashblock, and NoScript Extensions." I wouldn't know how to accomplish those things, and I'm not sure disabling those would necessarily be a good idea. I also haven't tried downloading the newest version of Flash Player because I am not sure which of the four options to download: YUM for Linux; .tar.gz for other Linux; .rpm for other Linux; or APT for Ubuntu 10.4+

Things I have tried:
1. Verified I have the latest and greatest firefox updates, not a problem since I just installed Ubuntu today, but still verified it.
2. Enabled cookies from *.pandora.com.
3. Cleared out my history.

Any further advice you have would be appreciated.

Since you are using Ubuntu use the Apt for Ubuntu to get flash now to turn off Adblock and the other extensions there should be a menu item dealing with extensions it should have an option for controlling each one( I use Chrome haven`t used Firefox in awhile ) but I`m sure someone will chime in to correct me soon 8) but if you are using the vanilla Firefox those extensions will not be installed anyway.

Enjoy the Choice :)

Pandora.

I was one of the many that went through the Pandora heart ache. It really did not matter what I did with either: Debian Sid or Mint 12 that I currently have installed on my linux box.

However, have you had a chance to look at last.fm?

http://alternativeto.net/software/lastfm/

It does everything Pandora does, albeit the playlists aren't nearly as convenient as the stations on Pandora, but it is free for the for seeable future unlike Pandora's new-ish business model. It is available in the repo's with pretty much 0 configs out the gate aside from an easy to setup account.

I was reluctant to leave Pandora after years of setting up my lists and tweaking things the way I wanted, but I was not willing to pay a fee for something that is pretty much free to being with.

YMMV,
