Hi there,
Not sure how the best way of asking this is but i've been playing around with HTML5 and the audio tag. I've managed to get multiple audios playing on a webpage, however it only works in certain browsers. In my case if I view the website on safari, chrome or IE all the sound files get displayed and are allowed to be played but if i use firefox only the first audio file is shown and allowed to be played. These audio files appear when a random entry from a database is displayed on my webpage. Trying to do a randomising music quiz.

Is this just a problem with the Firefox browser and is there a way around it?

Multiple audio elements display and work correctly for me. Check your attributes for missing quotations, and that you are correctly closing each tag.
