I would like to know what is the correct YouTube HTML settings. I looked in and it was set for "HTML5 player is currently used when possible". There is also "use the default player" setting which can be enabled. Which is correct? Thanks

Both are fine. You can go with either. HTML5 player is Firefox's built-in player. And your default player is most likely Adobe Flash. HTML5 player could be a little slower on older machines. If you notice this, you can always change to "use the default player".

How do I revert to the default player anyway? Because when I open a video in youtube, firefox automatically plays it with html5 player. Note: I set the flash player to 'ask to activate'
