Is there an alternative player that I can use in place of Adobe Shock Wave Flash Player that I can use to watch You Tube videos?

Right now I am unable to update my Adobe Flash 17 version because it is blocked by Fire Fox..

Is the problem that the videos are made using Flash and therefore Flash must be used to watch them?

I understand you have removed the ability of Adobe Flash to run on your browser, but a majority of the websites still use Adobe Flash for video content. And by removing access Adobe Flash on those websites requires me to use a different browser (Chrome and IE). In which case, I may decide to stick with the other browser.

Maybe your organization can come up with a security patch for FireFox, instead of removing the access until Adobe resolves the issue to your liking ?

As of yesterday, my Firefox new tab window only shows 10 "quicktabs" instead of 15, unless zoomed out to 80% of the webpage, which becomes unreadable.

So the new tab page of Firefox, used to have 15 quicklink tiles. However at random last night, it decided to go to 10. I cannot find how to set it back to 15. This is qui… (read more)

So the new tab page of Firefox, used to have 15 quicklink tiles. However at random last night, it decided to go to 10. I cannot find how to set it back to 15. This is quite annoying as I use these websites often, is there any way to fix or set how many are displayed? As currently they only appear when the zoom setting is set to 80%. Which I cannot read anything at.

Whenever I go to watch a html5-video firefox crashes, before any video appears. Whether it's on youtube or somewhere else. I have tried to refresh firefox, I have even tried to completely remove my profile and use a completely fresh one. I have tried to remove the mozilla folder in .cache.

These are some of my crash reports: bp-a6cca4f9-9911-4861-8652-a9b3c2150727 2015-07-27 18:35 bp-5a993273-4086-462a-917d-38b2b2150727 2015-07-27 18:22 bp-95bddcc7-531c-46de-850b-ca04e2150727 2015-07-27 18:10 bp-e6a1df1f-255e-4b4b-aeb6-b83392150727 2015-07-27 17:53

It works fine if I try to play videos in another browser, like Chromium.

Hi,

Error:

--The page isn't redirecting properly

--Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

--This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies

When trying to go to redcliffhealth.org, which I'm redirecting to www.redcliffhealth.org in my domain host configuration, I get the above error. It works perfectly in IE or Chrome.

I've researched this and cleared all cookies and unchecked "Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page" and these do not help.

What else could cause this?

Since updating to Windows 10, Firefox does not display properly, or rather the "minimize, Restore Down, Close" buttons in the upper right hand corner do not display properly. The Windows 10 buttons show through, but they are bigger than the hole for them.

I've attached a picture.

I have read and tried all suggestions that I have found. Uninstalled Firefox and Flash, cleaned up files etc... Very frustrating. Running on Windows 2008 Server 64bit , Firefox 39, Flash 18.0.0.194. The problem started just a week or 10 days ago. Around the same time as Firefox was updated to version 39. I do not have issues on Windows 7 64bit although it appears numerous others are experiencing this problem on that platform. (Also have tried disabling all plugins/extension etc etc). Also this is not specific to this user profile as the problem occurs with any user on the machine. The exact error with all videos that link to a facebook file "Video Unavailable We are having trouble playing this video." The videos work fine in Chrome.
