I just downloaded firefox (love it much more than chrome) but whenever i watch videos on any site it appears with a purple-pinkish version of the video with a green distorted version layered with it too but it does not happen in any of the other browsers. The first solution i found online was to change the "use hardware acceleration when available". i just checked it restart and unchecked it restart nothing happened, but if i have to change the number then help me that, if that is not the solution at all THEN HOW DOES ONE FIX THESE PURPLE/GREEN TINT ON VIDEOS?!

First, let's make sure your Flash Player is up to date.

Note: Windows users should download the ActiveX for Internet Explorer. and the plugin for Plugin-based browsers (like Firefox).

Note: Windows 8 and Windows 10 have built-in flash players and Adobe will cause a conflict. Install the plugin only. Not the ActiveX.

Flash Player Version: Version 26.0.0.151

For non-Flash videos, it may help to update your graphics card/chipset driver software. This article suggests safe ways to do that: Upgrade your graphics drivers to use hardware acceleration and WebGL.
