Firefox does not work when clicking links in youtube.
Pretty much exactly as the title says: the links will work in Chrome and Sea Monkey but fail to work in FF

Your above posted system details show outdated plugin(s) with known security and stability risks that you should update.

Update the Flash plugin to the latest version.
Update the Java plugin to the latest version.

I have updated all java and all adobe and it is still not working. I cannot search for anything nor can I access my favorites or anything else requiring linking to another page-----not since the last FF upgrade which seems to come every few days.
Nonetheless, I have found the answer:
First and foremost, DO update all your add-ons and plug-ins. And if that doesn't work, continue on.
Close all instances of Firefox.
Click your Start Menu > Programs > Mozilla > Firefox (Safe Mode)
A prompt will pop up. Check "Reset all user preferences to Firefox defaults." Click the "Make Changes and Restart" button. Voila! Go to youtube.com and click a random video, you should be able to navigate the uploader's information about the video now.
