I can not get my webcam to work through firefox on facebook. Is there anything that I can do to get it to work?


Everytime I try to use my webcam on facebook through firefox it will not work. The screen to show the picture doesnt even come up. Yet I go to another browser and it works. I really don't want to stop using firefox, is there anything that I can do to get it to work?
