I can't quite believe that there isn't a solution to this available on the web - there seem a lot of people having the problem but no solutions I could find.

The site http://www.google.com/earth/explore/products/plugin.html says

"Good news - you already have the Google Earth Plug-in installed"

however in the box on the left-hand side it says

"There was a problem with the Google Earth Plugin"

and suggests restarting the browser and re-installing the plugin. I've tried both of these but am still getting this error.

I've tried this in both Safari 5.1.2 and Firefox 3.0.1 (yes I know this needs to be upgraded :) )

Any tips of where I should look in the logs to investigate the problem ?

Edit : @First - the entries from the Console are

If you look in Console Application (under Utilities/Console) are there any errors in there? –  First Zero Dec 30 '11 at 5:19
