The solution is simple here. Go to your page that views the webcam. Right click the webpage window, in the pop up box click settings, on the bottom of the settings screen are tabs, click the far left one, uncheck the box that says enable hardware acceleration.

Let me know if you have any other questions.......

doesn't work for me. Any other ideas?

Question owner

That is direction for Internet Explorer Browser, not Firefox?

There must be something out there to access cams from Firefox? I added the IE TAB add-on but doesn't seem to work either. Any other ideas?
