Firefox not supporting video format or mime type for CW network only (so far)

I'm getting "Video Format or MIME Type is not supported" flashed on all videos on the CW network site, then the video doesn't play; but no where else. And only with Firefox 32.0.3 in Windows 8.1/64 pro (not N or KN) and in Windows 7/64 Pro on another computer.

I don't have any problems with CW videos using Microsoft IE. Not my preferred browser.

Checked the flash updates and they are up to date.

I did a suggested "disable HTML5 media player" in about:config but that didn't help. Couldn't find any other suggestions for my system.

I have a Dell Inspiron 15, purchased in May 2014. I am running Windows 7 Home. I have been having this problem intermittently for the past two weeks or so.

I have: - checked to see that sound is not muted. - upgraded Adobe Flash player to latest version. - checked online to see if MS updates might have caused the problem and then, - done a system restore for Windows back to 9/29/2014 - tested my speakers on another machine (Windows XP machine that I replaced in May). Speakers are fine and I get sound from YouTube on that machine. - cleared the Firefox cache.

I can hear sound from other web applications that use FlashPlayer (e.g., podcasts).

Thanks for any help you can offer me.

The address wasn't understood

Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (rtsp) isn't associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

   You might need to install other software to open this address.

I am not a techy so please make it simple.

Thanks

I just downloaded Firefox to my computer last week because we are going to be going to a new software and they recommended we use Firefox. I am not able to use my mouse to scroll up and down the pages. I have to use the side scroll bar which is not really efficient. I just want to be able to use my mouse to move better. I am using Windows 7 on a regular PC. I probably have a setting that needs to be changed but I can't find it. I have already gone into options and checked auto-scrolling and tried the other settings as well. HELP!! Thanks!! Carolyn

Thanks VERY much.

Why doesn't my "Show windows and tabs from last time" work?

Hello all,

I used to have my settings set to "Show windows and tabs from last time". For some reason now, it doesn't work. Whenever I close my tabs, Firefox will warn me that I'm closing multiple tabs and when I reopen Firefox, I only get my homepage.

In the options menu, I've set the options to be "Show windows and tabs from last time" and in the Privacy setting, I have "Firefox will remember history", so I don't believe it's related to my settings.

I saw a thread about "browser.sessionstore.enabled" needs to be true in about:config, but I don't even have a Preference Name that says "browser.sessionstore.enabled". Perhaps that's the problem? If so, I have NO IDEA how to fix that. I'm not computer savvy at all.

If someone could find a solution to this really annoying problem, I'd be very grateful. If it takes a lot of programming/techie work, please be VERY descriptive (pretend I'm a 5 year old child in giving directions).

THANKS!

Firefox is set to open to my home page (Mozilla Firefox Start Page) which shows the search page with the Bing search engine set. However, every time it opens TWO PAGES...the home page and with a blank "NEW TAB" page on top that offers to assist me with a pop-up message that says "Click on the + button and add your favorite sites". This is also happening EVERY time that a new window is supposed to open...my new information is displayed on the first tab, but the second tab (as stated above) opens on top. I have verified that there is no extra information set in the properties link.. it shows "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe". I have also verified that no other toolbars are installed or opening. I have verified that the "Tools/Options/General Tab is set to "Show My Home Page" and that the Home Page is set to "Mozilla Firefox Start Page". This is a brand newly built machine with Win 7 Home Premium Serv Pack 1, 64 bit operating system installed. Please help me shut off the blank page...all I want to see when I click on Firefox or open a second window is the main start page with my search engine option. Thank you.

I still need help on the following:

After installing latest Firefox version 'Restore Previous Session' is still greyed out, how do I get that working? I do not understand the solution on this site. I am a basic user and never used anything but windows.

How do I avoid automatic installation of Thunderbird & Firefox updated versions? Thunderbird installed the latest version when I clicked 'About Thunderbird' to check the latest version. I was not given a choice, it just started installing.

Win Xp Sp3 Firefox 32.0.3

I can't get my mp3's on Box.net to play. This link opens up a player but when I push the "Play" button, nothing happens.

https://app.box.com/s/s2yq8eokzcrihprv63yl

In the Web Developer console, I see a message saying that the file can not be decoded.

f_21818880347 Media resource https://app.box.com/preview/f_21818880347.mp3 could not be decoded.

This problem is new. Firefox always worked before. I'm just not sure how long I've had the problem without knowing about it.
