I thought it was a problem with the social sites that i use, but they have no reports with other users of fire fox.
I'd try going to the plugin checker to see if everything is up to date:
You might also want to take a look at the Fix common audio and video issues Knowledge Base article. There is lots of good troubleshooting information in there.
Hopefully this helps!
Ok all plug ins were checked and updated but nothing helped. when i try to view videos at social sites like tagged face book etc. i get blank white page where the videos are supposed to be Stan

ok i already tried that.. now i have no choice but to go back an older browser.. i have tried all suggestions in help, i need some thing new please!!! Stan
Try this...Go into "Firefox" (top left of browser), click on "Add-ons", click on "Extensions". If "RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin" extension exists "Disable" it. Hope this helps
ok new suggestion did not work I guess no one can help so i went back to my old browser fire fox 3.6.28 where the problems did not exist... thank you for trying.
I went to extensions and found Realdownloader, so disabled that and YES it worked, what were blank spaces become playable videos!! Thanks
my problem was fixed with the newest browser thanks for all the help and suggestions offered thanks again.
