Yes, I have tried safe mode in Firefox and still nothing.
Chromium now plays You Tube but not Facebook. I just
installed Opera, which I really do not like, and it works
fine. Leaving me to believe it is something in Firefox or
in Flash plugin. Wonder if I can get an older version of
Firefox or Flash plugin and try it. Was thinking it was
my video drivers. This all started when I upgraded to
version 14.10. Slowly the vidoes on Facebook stopped
working, then on you tube. Still would rather use
Firefox than Opera. Any more help would be great.
