You can check for problems caused by a recent Flash 11.3 update and possibly downgrade to Flash 11.2 or 10.3.

Thanks - but not sure why this did not affect Internet Explorer as well. It has to be a Firefox issue; not a Flash issue. I will remove the 11.3 and look back to previous version or just - for the time being - just forget videos on Fox News or got to I E to see them. But noticed that this has happened with Fox and Firefox in the past as well. Thanks again.

Internet Explorer uses a ActiveX version of Flash, and Chrome comes with its own Flash.

thank you
