DOES FIREFOX BLOCK THE PLAYING OF UTUBE VIDEOS THAT ARE EMAILED TO ME?

Posted

I RECENTLY MADE FIREFOX MY DEFAULT BROWSER AGAIN. NOW WHEN SOMEONE SENDS ME A UTUBE VIDEO, I CAN'T OPEN IT DUE TO "RESTRICTIONS ON MY COMPUTER", AND THE DIALOGUE BOX REFERS ME TO THE ADMINISTRATOR (WHICH IS ME). I'VE NEVER PUT ANY RESTRICTIONS OF ANY SORT (PARENTAL OR OTHERWISE) ON MY COMPUTER, ESPECIALLY CONCERNING UTUBE. I BELIEVE I'VE RECENTLY RECEIVED SOME UPDATES TO FIREFOX. DOES FIREFOX BLOCK EMAILED UTUBE LINKS? COULD THAT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT?

Please turn off your Caps Lock. In text talk, this is shouting.


Shut down Firefox. Using your file browser, open the Programs Folder on your computer.

Windows: C:\Program Files C:\Program Files (x86)

Right click on Firefox.exe and select Properties. Now select Compatibility. Turn Off Run This Program In Compatibility Mode, and Run This Program As An Administrator.

Do the same for any Firefox shortcuts you have. Now restart Firefox.
