How can I play the video on Comedy Central since the latest Mozilla upgrade? (I can on Safari)

Posted

Since today's update, I cannot see video on Comedy Central. I can on Safari, but love the Mozilla add blocker. It says to download Adobe Flash and enable Java script. I've tried. No change. I tried to downgrade Flash to 10.3 and loaded Real Player. No change. Please help. Thank you! Terry

Chosen solution

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do not click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

You can check for problems caused by recent Flash updates and try these:

  • disable protected mode in Flash 11.3 and later
  • disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin

I can see Comedy Central videos if I take the extension Ad blocker off. I just can't watch all those ads. Bummer.
