[ubuntu-za] Problem : Firefox on Ubuntu 14.04 (updated daily)

I also had the same problem ( of #2035 errors on many News24 videos with 
Firefox) but it seems to have resolved itself recently.
I still have Shockwave Flash but it is set to "Ask to activate" (so I 
can play BBC News videos).  So maybe try that.

What I am still having problems with is Firefox and Youtube. Often I 
will just get a window with the Youtube logo in the middle instead of 
video.  Sometimes there is audio.  When I click on the window, I get an 
error message.  I suspect it could be due to a problem with the playing 
of some ads.

Does anybody else get that?
Next time I will try de-activating Shockwave Flash and see if that helps.
