when I try to play my movies on Google Play website I only get a preview movie not the full movie. When I access the same page on Chrome and click on a movie the full playable version appears.

  • Cookies; Select Privacy. Under History, select

Firefox will Use Custom Settings. Press the button on the right side called Show Cookies. Use the search bar to look for the site. Note; There may be more than one entry. Remove All of them.

  • Cache; Select Advanced > Network.

[v57+] Select Privacy. Across from Cached Web Content, Press Clear Now.

If there is still a problem, 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?

While you are in Safe Mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

Ok fixed it. It worked fine in Safe Mode. Further investigation showed that my 'Ghostery' plug in was blocking the videos. Made Google Play an exemption and now works perfectly. Many thanks.
