I have found a few instances of this problem recounted here in the forums, all with convoluted solutions, none of which seem to work. Anyway, if I have to go through all that every time I try and view a site's videos, I'm going to just have to switch to another browser, which would be a pity, as Firefox has long been my favorite. YouTube, Vimeo, other video sites work ok. disabling ad blocker does not work. Does ANYBODY know why the new firefox continually returns this error message, or the one that says video took too long to load. it's always one or the other, and on practically every site i visit that hosts its own video content. Tried safe mode too. No help.

Tried adding screen cap of error message, but it wouldn't load. Sorry.
