Your recent problem (intermittant) may have been solved by clearing cache, but
the Foxnews videos were NOT watchable for a long, long time. That was when
you probably first had the problem. They were apparently using a flash format
that was incompatible with the linux flash player. This cleared up within the
last year and I have had no problems with the videos since.
So yes, you had a hard failure prior to Foxnews cleaning up their act. :-)
