I have Firefox 18. I have the latest Adobe Flash installed (after doing a full uninstall and reinstall). I have cleared the cache, cookies, etc.

No matter what I try, YouTube videos will not play in Firefox. I always get the same message:

"An error occurred. Please try again later."

If I copy the exact same link into Explorer (which I normally detest using) it plays perfectly. So clearly the fault lies with Firefox.

What can be done to fix this bug?

Is there a way to either completely disable this check, or allow a global pass for all websites?

I am aware that I can add individual websites by clicking the icon in the location bar and telling it to always load plugins to that particular site, however for the particular project I am configuring firefox for this is unfortunately not an option - if I can't turn this off I will need to look into other browser options which would be an incredible pain as right now the setup is perfected minus this one point.

I have had a look in the about:permissions page and the only option there for Plugins is 'Allow' or 'Always ask'. I have this set to allow but clearly that the above warning is not influenced by this.

I am constantly getting This Connection is Untrusted (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain). At the moment it says that google is receiving a facebook certificate. It constantly bothers me and it happens frequently and randomly. It happens and then go away after a short amount of time. If I add an exception, I can't access google at all and will always be re-directed to facebook. I don't know how to fix this stupid error.

Downloaded VLC Web Plugin Version 2.0.5.0 and rebooted and restarted Firefox. Firefox Plug Ins still shows old version 2.0.2.0. When I check Firefox for latest version is says 2.0.2.0 is the latest and I'm up to date.

When I open VLC as a standalone it comes up as version 2.0.5.0.

Why is Firefox not incorporating the correct version?

How can I reset the DEFAULT zoom view in Firefox at 125%, like IE, so I don't have to reset it every time ?

I have seen this question asked previously and it seems there is no answer.

I know that one can change each individual web page (that reset defaults back to 100%) and, alternatively and apparently one can load an add-on to fix the default size at Full Zoom.

... But any hints on how to achieve a DEFAULT 125% zoom would be much appreciated.
