This only happens with cnn videos. Same problem when using safe-mode. Internet explorer runs these videos ok. Firefox seems to quit before it gets to the video window.

Could you take a screen shot and post?

It's likely this is a plug-in issue and-or Java actionscript issue.

Have you attempted to refresh page on this white screen? What Anti-Virus security do you have running in the background?

You can check for problems with current Shockwave Flash plugin versions and try this:

  • disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)
  • disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin
