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?

Is there a way to either completely disable this check, or allow a global pass for all websites?

I am aware that I can add individual websites by clicking the icon in the location bar and telling it to always load plugins to that particular site, however for the particular project I am configuring firefox for this is unfortunately not an option - if I can't turn this off I will need to look into other browser options which would be an incredible pain as right now the setup is perfected minus this one point.

I have had a look in the about:permissions page and the only option there for Plugins is 'Allow' or 'Always ask'. I have this set to allow but clearly that the above warning is not influenced by this.

I am constantly getting This Connection is Untrusted (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain). At the moment it says that google is receiving a facebook certificate. It constantly bothers me and it happens frequently and randomly. It happens and then go away after a short amount of time. If I add an exception, I can't access google at all and will always be re-directed to facebook. I don't know how to fix this stupid error.

Downloaded VLC Web Plugin Version 2.0.5.0 and rebooted and restarted Firefox. Firefox Plug Ins still shows old version 2.0.2.0. When I check Firefox for latest version is says 2.0.2.0 is the latest and I'm up to date.

When I open VLC as a standalone it comes up as version 2.0.5.0.

Why is Firefox not incorporating the correct version?

How can I reset the DEFAULT zoom view in Firefox at 125%, like IE, so I don't have to reset it every time ?

I have seen this question asked previously and it seems there is no answer.

I know that one can change each individual web page (that reset defaults back to 100%) and, alternatively and apparently one can load an add-on to fix the default size at Full Zoom.

... But any hints on how to achieve a DEFAULT 125% zoom would be much appreciated.

This seems to happen on all Youtube video's I play. I don't know about other videos because I seldom view any others. When the video freeze happens the download bar is always ahead of the play bar so I don't think download is the problem. However, when the freeze happens, the download bar stops moving. When the play bar catches up to the download bar, the audio stops also. If I move my cursor, the video and audio start playing again. As long as I keep my cursor moving, the video plays fine. I am using Firefox 18.0.1. Computer is an HP dv6-1350us with dual processors. OS is Windows 7. I also use Chrome at times and the freeze doesn't happen on Chrome.

I have Win 7 and FF 18.0.1 The problem I am having is recent as this used to work okay.

When I go to Youtube and want to play a playlist of videos continuously it doesn't play continuously anymore. When the video page appears it appears with a bold red circle and a backslash in it and as soon as I hover my mouse over video part of the page the red circle disappears then I have to click on the play button in the center of the video page to get it to play. Then it plays that video and stops. Then I have to go through the same thing again to get the next video to play when all of the videos should play continuously until all are played and that is that way it used to work until just recently. I am guessing that I added a FF add on that is causing this problem. This has been going on for a few weeks and I thought nothing about it until today when I tried to play a continuous circuit of videos and now I don't remember what add ons I recently added. Of course I don't know that a FF add on is causing this problem. I can play the same playlist of videos with Internet Explorer and they play continuously the way they are supposed to play.

I just updated to the latest version of Firefox (18.0.1) and I find that I can no longer navigate to fully half of the sites I used to, such as Gmail and Facebook. Most of the sites I go to now don't even look right, they just display text, no UI. Even as I type this up, there's only text. I tried to use Firefox's own tool to find which plugins I had installed, and it gave me the same "This connection is untrusted" message. Most of the sites I got to allow me to make an exception, but Gmail doesn't, nor does the Firefox plugin page. I've used Firefox for years but this is the first time I've ever had an issue like this.
