What works

Everything. The following features were tested and work as expected:-

  • Viewing
  • Turning pages
  • Transposing
  • Printing
  • Audio playback
  • Changing tempo

What does not

  • The installer did not place the plugins in to the Firefox plugins folder. Instead they were placed in drive_c/plugins/. To get the browser to use the plugin, the two DLLs (NPSibelius.dll and ScorchPDFWrapper.dll) need to be copied to drive_c/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/plugins/ then restart Firefox.
  • Memory usage seems to be very high, but a comparison with Windows has not yet been made, so it may be an issue with the plugin or maybe Firefox 2.0.
    Memory usage increased by 360 MB when loading the test page that contained the plugin.


What was not tested

  • Running within Firefox 3 because the website which I was testing does not display the plugin correctly in Firefox 3 (even on Windows).
  • Embedded within Opera or Netscape.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Tested on Firefox for Windows using the free samples that are available on A silver rating has been given due to the memory usage, otherwise this would be a gold rating.
