Why has firefox stopped streaming videos?

Posted

I am running Win7 64bit. Firefox has suddenly stopped streaming videos on line. I can stream on IE and Chrome. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox but still can not stream videos on line.

Chosen solution

hello, i think this is caused by the update of adobe's flash plugin to version 11.3 which has caused problems viewing videos for many users (chrome and IE get supplied by adifferent version of the plugin by adobe)

you can remove flash 11.3 from the windows control panel/programs section & downgrade to a prior version until adobe fixes those issues.

Which Flash player version are you using?

If you can't get Flash 11.3 to work and need to revert to Flash 11.2 then you can download the Flash 11.2 player via this direct link:
