Every time I try and watch a video in youtube, it says "If playback doesn't begin shortly, try restarting your device." I have tried so many things to attempt to fix it. I tried installing Youtube Flash Player, I tried restarting my PC, I tried re-installing Firefox, and I tried disabling hardware acceleration. None of the solutions I found worked. The part of the progress bar used to drag and move along the video timeline (the red circle) doesn't even appear.
