For any videos hosted on yahoo.com and that aren't youtube, they just sit on the black screen with the blue circle cycling through. They never play and this has been an issue for months. Google this problem and you will see how many people have the issue and that no one give an actual fix to the issue. I would think that someone could actually fix this bug at some point but nothing has been done

Please check if all your plugins are up-to-date. To do this, go to the Mozilla Plugin Check site.

Once you're there, the site will check if all your plugins have the latest versions. If you see plugins in the list that have a yellow Update button or a red Update now button, please update these immediately.

To do so, please click each red or yellow button. Then you should see a site that allows you to download the latest version. Double-click the downloaded file to start the installation and follow the steps mentioned in the installation procedure.

It's frustrating because you were asking me to do something that I have already done, as I stated in my question. The updates have been done and everything is updated. I have cleared out all my history, cookies, etc. I have launched in safe mode, it's not about hardware acceleration. Just like others have said when you look up this question IE works just fine when playing the videos but not firefox for some reason. It has not always been this way, firefox used to play them just fine but this has been going on for a while now so I am curious as to what changed with firefox to bring on this problem

Couple of things: It looks like you are still on Firefox 21, please update to Firefox 22 Update Firefox to the latest release.

Also, a new version of Flash was released in the last few days, can you make sure you are running Flash 11.8?

Again, everything has been updated that can be updated. That is why I said it at the beginning. I do automatic updates for firefox so when they come out I get them. Pretty simple to check as well by clicking about firefox and it says the version I have. This has been a problem on several updated versions of Firefox
