I have Firefox 18. I have the latest Adobe Flash installed (after doing a full uninstall and reinstall). I have cleared the cache, cookies, etc.

No matter what I try, YouTube videos will not play in Firefox. I always get the same message:

"An error occurred. Please try again later."

If I copy the exact same link into Explorer (which I normally detest using) it plays perfectly. So clearly the fault lies with Firefox.

What can be done to fix this bug?

Just this week (10/1/12) I signed out of youtube and now I cannot log back in there or in my gmail account. I have tried every single fix-it/remedy offered on the FF forum but nothing works.

Everything else works, all websites I frequent load fine, is youtube doing something on purpose to FF users? I can get to the youtube page and view videos, but I cannot log in, every time I click the sign in button I get:

"The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. 

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

I hate to be a conspiracy theorist, but I can log in to youtube with no problem on IE, but I hate that browser. I am using windows 7 and FF 15. Can anybody figure this one out?

Before I changed internet service providers, I could type my search queries into the url bar and receive search results from Google. After I switched ISPs, my queries typed into the url bar are put into my new ISP's horrible search engine. How do I change it back?

I've already tried going to about:config and changing the value of the keyword.URL preference to "http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=" but that didn't fix my problem.


New information since creation of the post:

My ISP is Optimum. I have opted out of DNS Assistance and still have seen no change.

When my search term is two words or more, I am directed to Google search results. If my search term is only one word, however, I am still directed to Optimum's search results.

Usually when I go to search for something, I type directly into the address bar. Most of the time it'll automatically just perform a Google search. Recently, however, the search engine has been changing to Yahoo, which is god-awful. I've looked around on the internet for answers but the address bar search engine, as well as the actual search box next to the address bar, keep setting themselves to Yahoo.

What I've done so far: Every time it switches from Google to Yahoo, I open about:config. I search for Yahoo and these pop up: [IMG]http://i44.tinypic.com/2rc1gyg.png/IMG

The status of the items in bold say "user set," but I haven't set any of those. Usually I reset them all to default, sometimes I will change the 2nd, 4th, and 5th items to Google.

I've also gone through my search bar settings and deleted every search engine except Google (these include Yahoo, Bing, Wikipedia, Ebay, Amazon, etc.). However Yahoo will randomly pop up.

I don't know what's causing it. But it's getting really annoying.

If you know how to solve this once and for all, please help!

Thanks for reading!

When I try to access me Barclays Online Banking webpage I receive this error message : The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

If I clear my history I can then access the Barclays login page and re-enter my details but as soon as I log out I receive the error message once again when I go back. I have no problem whatsoever using this website with Internet Explorer.

Please help !!

I have an issue with one of my Firefox extensions/plugins, it's called MyStart: Incredibar, and I basically installed unintentionally when I installed a program with a Brothersoft downloader/launcher. I tried uninstalling Mystart and I tried permanently stopping the service that updates the MyStart incredibar plugin. What it basically does is, when I open a new tab in Firefox, it opens some sort of website, I don't have a problem with it loading a search engine, the only problem I have regarding the search engine is that every time I open a new tab, it actually loads a new page. I even tried resetting the certain figures in about:config which helped temporarily, but after I restart Firefox then it still runs the search engine when I open a new tab. I use Eset Nod32 and Anti-Malmwarebytes as my system's defense, and I've tried scanning with both of them but they don't help at all, does anyone have information that will permanently remove this plugin from my PC?

Screenshot of this problem can be found HERE

My About:Config settings looks like THIS

Some HTML5 videos won't play in my Firefox browser.

This vine for example (https://vine.co/v/b3v5h3Piwt7) only shows up as a static image. I can click the mute/audio button though, but it won't play. When I look at the webconsole when I load the page then 2 javascript warnings show up, the first one say that the Mediasource [long url here] can't be encoded and another one says loading of all candidate sources failed. loading media paused.

I'm using Firefox 21.0 and I tried to run Firefox in safe mode with disabled add-ons, and I also tried to reinstall it, but without success.

Thanks in advance.

I'm running XP on a lap-top that originally had Vista that didn't work as well and Firefox 26.0, up-to date. I have "Add-Ons" of; Adblock Plus 2.4.1, Advanced System Care 1.0 and NoScript 2.6.8.12

Ever since updating to 26.0 that damnable "plug-in container.exe" has been slowing down my web surfing and I'm constantly ending the process in task Manager. I want to disable or remove it completely with easy-to-read instructions - Not some of the 5-page "mumbo-jumbo" I've been reading for other "solutions". It has slowed me down and irritated me to the point of considering returning to I-E.

It has to go or I'm going.
