I disliked Edge, so I got Firefox 40 for Windows 10 .... but now I can't see Twitch TV game broadcasts / videos. If I go back to Edge, then I can see Twitch broadcasts .... so I'm thinking I'm missing a PLUG-IN for Firefox that Edge has ?? Which one is it ?? Which plug-in do I need, and how do I fix Firefox.

Your System Details shows no flash player.

Flash Player Version 18.0.0.232
https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html
Note: Windows users must download the “Internet Explorer” and “Plugin-based browsers” installers.

Note: Edge on Win10 does not use ActiveX version but its own Flash.

See if there are updates for your graphics drivers https://support.mozilla.org/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration

Twitch.tv still uses the Flash Player plugin (plugin based) from Adobe for the video part.

Twitch is looking to switch to HTML5 for video instead of Flash as the new player already has HTML5 for controls but still uses Flash for video.

They did switch the chat on old player to HTML5 on June 30 so if you see chat but no video then that is why.

To sample the new player in use (does not have chat in link). http://player.twitch.tv/?channel=replacethiswithchannelname
