There was a problem with the Google Earth Plugin.
Exit the browser completely (Cmd-Q on Mac; Alt-F x on Windows), then re-open this page to see it in action.
If that doesn't help, you can re-install the Google Earth Plugin using this link.
I've tried this twice. Now I'm running a Mac but I think I'm still doing something wrong, any ideas mac users?
Make sure you in fact have the earlier version of google earth. It took a while for me to find the proper download location. Several times I thought I was downloading the older version only to find the link kept pushing me into a newer one.
