|||||My Style - Over AllBrothers (Jamendo Pop Radio)||]|
In case you do not know, Jamendo is
a show case for music licensed under Creative Commons licences, with a lot
of great tracks to listen to. However, after the recent upgrade, I found that

Furthermore, the new Jamendo requires Adobe Flash to be whitelisted as well.

then go to
“Tools → Add-Ons → Extensions → Flashblock → Preferences → Whitelist”
and add http://www.jamendo.com/ there. I don’t know how to properly enable

installed, so blame Jamendo.com - not me. (And, yes, I know that
Flash is evil.)
There may be some other obstacles on the way, but now everything is working
fine for me. I am going to complain to Jamendo that in this HTML 5 day and
age, one needs to use Flash to listen to their streams, which, as I
recall, was not necessary in the old Jamendo.
