I am not having this problem in Internet Explorer. I have AdBlockPlus installed as an Add-On to my Firefox browser. I have tried turning it off on You Tube pages, and these still display as html only. Other than this information, there are no relevant details other than those provide in my question. If there is some information you require that I have overlooked, pls. contact me by email and I will be happy to provide information as necessary to resolve this problem.
