I have the current version of FIrefox installed but it will not let me play my favorite radio station as it says that it is not a sercure site, even though it is HTTPS, My old laptop runs the site fine but is windows 7.

Problem solved.

I had TotalAV anti virus installed but have now uninstalled it. Morow is now working. I thought I would give that a go and see what happens. Even disableing the software it still blocked the site.

I am not goig to reinstall TotalAV as it was the cause of the problem.

Although the website is using HTTPS, it's trying to load a non-HTTPS (HTTP) piece of code. This is called mixed content and Firefox doesn't allow that content to load since it (in a sense) defeats the purpose of loading a website in HTTPS to begin with.

If you do trust the website and want to accept the potential risks, you can disable mixed content blocking for that website and Firefox will play the content without issues. See Mixed content blocking in Firefox.

Hope this helps.

I have done all of that and still will not work. I am finding the hole situation frustrating, as the web site in question works on a laptop running windows 7.

Disabling mixed content blocking fixed the problem for me.

On the website, press the F12 key on your keyboard to open the developer tools and select Console. Post a screenshot of any error messages that are listed there.

You might also want to try running Firefox in Safe Mode to see if there is an add-on installed that's causing the issue.

The Web Console shows some messages about blocking passive content (likely images), but that doesn't affect the playing for me. There is one message about blocking mixed active content (Error while auto-detecting country).

  • "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Web Developer

Also, make sure that, if you don't reinstall TotalAV, that you download some other antivirus software in its place.

There are some good free programs out there, like Avast or AVG (both the same company) and there are also some good cheap alternatives.
