When I open video on youtube/liveleak or any other site. It loads but it wont start playing. On youtube I get "If playback doesn’t begin shortly try restarting your device". It started today. I cleared cache, turned off all addons It didnt help, so I refreshed Firefox. And it still doesnt work. I need help.

Chosen solution

I had to reset Windows to system settings, because login prompt disapered. And suggested solution didnt work. Now videos works.

Make sure you are not blocking content.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Safe websites. Is the problem still there?
