Although I have Adobe Reader and their ebook product installed (I 
needed it to read a specific book; go figure), I don't have Shockwave 
Player installed, which was the clue to the prior mystery. Instead of 
Reader, for anyone on windows, I use Nitro Reader, another 'freebie' 
that works great. I've also disabled the Firefox plugin for Adobe 
Reader. Nitro has a plugin as well.
