Having trouble logging onto B&W’s “Society of Sound”?

B&W speakers have a great download service called “Society of Sound.” For a modest subscription fee you can download high quality audio files from some great artists.

But there’s a potential bug for some users. The download manager uses Adobe Air, and on some combinations of computer/browswer/OS, it can refuse to load properly. After a bit of online searching, I found the strangest of fixes – but it works. Just download the Firefox web browser (if not already installed) and then have Firefox open and running before you attempt to open the B&W Download Manager. For some dumb-ass reason, this will allow Adobe Air to run properly. I don’t know why either.

Someone posted this as a fix for an Abode Air hang-up (thank you!) as it worked for them and it worked for me too, so if you’re having a similar problem, it’s worth a try (a quick Google search shows a lot of user issues with Adobe Air, so I suspect this solution may help more than those stuck with the B&W download manager)
