Embedded FinaleViewer files

Can someone do something about all these FinaleViewer files from Abel Di Marco? I'm using a new iMac and the plugin doesn't work for modern versions of OS X. That means this entire category is essentially clogged up with files I cannot use. It really makes the process of finding music (that I can see and use) tedious to the point of being ridiculous. I tried writing Abel Di Marco a while back with no response so it's up to someone who has the ability to view FinaleViewer files. Conversion to PDF would be GREATLY appreciated.

Hi Dan, a workaround is available for Abel Di Marco's files: If you are a Mozilla Firefox user, just install the add-on Download Embedded. With it, you'll be able to easily download from Di Marco's pages the embedded .MUS files. Open them with the free Finale Reader in order to listen to the music and print it. —Carlos Email.gif 15:38, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
Alas you would have to use Firefox 2 'cause it doesn't work with Firefox 3 as stated on the Download pageClaude 16:57, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
Claude, are you sure you read it right? The add-on page says it's compatible with Firefox 1.5 - 3.0.*, although some comments on the page state that it's not very stable yet in version 3.0.
But your comment ended up being helpful: searching for an alternative I found another extension, Embedded Objects 1.7, which is also compatible with Firefox 3.0 and is even easier to use, because it shows the downloadable files with just one click on its icon, without having to open another window as was the case with 'Download Embedded'. :) —Carlos Email.gif 17:51, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
