This problem is driving me crazy! It was working until few days ago.

I can't watch any videos from this website/domain: http://redeglobo.globo.com/videos/ Things I've tried: - private browsing - safe mode - new profile/refresh - portable version - uninstall/reinstall - older versions - uninstalled kaspersky/windows defender is disabled - HOSTS file is clean(Windows 7 x64)

The thing is, the ads load but not the video content. If the ad is long, an error message appears while the audio is still playing in the background. Another computer in the same network plays them fine. All other browsers can play these videos, this problem only happens in Firefox. I've tested a virtual machine in this same computer and then it works. Is there anything else I can do to try to fix this?

Firefox console shows these errors: Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://vodstreaming02a.video.globo.com/r90_720/v7/e8/93/1e/7164945_1e25dd21ab308227e9961ad4c2a44399a4dc60ff/7164945-manifest.ism/7164945-manifest-audio_por_1=128025-video_por=1967000.m3u8?hls_client_manifest_version=4. (Reason: CORS header ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ missing).

Well, look at that. Actually the problem persists but now I know where it comes from. Videos started playing again when my PC clock changed automatically to 1 hour earlier. I tried to change time zone with an addon but the website gets the time from the system clock. I suspect it's related to daylight savings. Thanks anyway, I now know it's probably not a Firefox issue.

Thanks for your answer. I know, it works anywhere else but I'd really want to understand why it doesn't work in my computer even after reinstalling it and that happens only in that specific domain. I've tried more things like installing ffdshow, xvid, new graphics card drivers but nothing works! This is very frustrating.

I called for more help.

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

  • Clear the Cache and
  • Remove Cookies

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

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). Did this help?

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.

Yes, I've tried all that including deleting my profile folder.

It all looks like it's something external but I don't know what I'm missing.

Try to enable third-party cookies temporarily as a test to see if that has effect. If this works then create a cookie "Allow for Session" exception for involved domains. See the Storage Inspector (Tools -> Web Developer) for details about cookies.

Cookies were allowed but I created an exception just in case and it's still happening.

I keep getting these hls errors: hlsjs: non-fatal error occurred (x4 times)

and the last one: hlsjs: unrecoverable network fatal error

Those errors don't appear in the other pc.

What security software do you have?

Boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support to see if that has effect in case security software is causing problems.

It doesn't work, I've tried all that already. My other pc can't play those videos in windows safe mode too.

Somehow it's working again, maybe the website devs changed something.

Wait a few days. If the problem is gone,
