Matt already pointed to the needed Mozilla plugin.
& I am glad that You got an answer in this more frequented part of the forum.
Hi...Thanks for the reply. I do not understand what you are saying though. Is there anything I can to to get Gmail to recognize the plug in they say is missing? I can use Gmail phone from the Internet Explorer browser ok and also the Firefox browser ok. Should I go to the Google browser, Chrome, which I think I already have done and download the plug in for phone use.
So I was wrong it is a browser plugin or there is a browser plugin that makes Chat usable. It merely did not install at a place where my K-Meleon could detect it or it did not install here.
IE uses another plugin type called activeX controls.
Firefox installs the Mozilla plugin into his own extensions folder - You can try to scavenge them from there. That is probably the way the Chat plugin found its path to K-Meleon extensions page.
But K-Meleon cannot recognize it in FF extensions folder.
