I am a 73 year old combat veteran --know a little about computers--not a expert. I just want the basics.--I was led to believe firefox was best for watching porn.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

Many ahem porn sites are among those that still make use of Flash Player Plugin from Adobe, at least on desktop web browser.

The mobile/tablet versions of the site may default to use HTML5 player if not already in use by default for both small screen and desktop.

If you are not able to fully use HTML5 player then that may explain not being able to play videos.

A site you can use to check what you support is at https://www.youtube.com/html5/

If two or three check marks are red then you may have a N edition of Windows 10 and do not have the Media Feature Pack installed.

However if your Windows 10 is for the US and Canada market this should not be a issue as it comes with this pack.
