Youtube videos won't play with Firefox.

Posted

Youtube is still working with Safari and Chrome but for some reason it stopped working with Firefox. This happened the night before it updated to Firefox 25. I thought the update was the issue but it's not. I've tried everything that I've read about to fix this issue. I've tried playing vids in safe mode, updated to the latest version of flash, disabled hardware acceleration, I've cleared all cookies and cache, I've reset firefox, I've deleted all my add-ons, I've deleted and re-installed firefox. Nothing is working. Anyone got a clue what to do?

It has nothing to do with extensions and cache. Forgive me, but this kind of response does not help anyone. The truth is that the problem persists and no one is giving a solution. Wait, please, some feedback. Thank you very much.
