Is downloading and installing the Firefox with the language the only solution?

I am unable to play flash video content from facebook or CNN. I am using Firefox 31 and Flash 14.0.0.179 (32 bit) running under Windows 7 Pro. I also have the 64 bit version installed for use with internet explorer. These videos play fine in internet explorer, but not in Firefox. CNN videos stopped playing in Firefox months ago, and Facebook stopped within the last few days.

I started Firefox in safe mode, reset Firefox, uninstalled and reinstalled flash, and uninstalled and reinstalled the latest realplayer (found that suggestion online). So far, nothing has helped.

CNN Videos just freeze once the player control bar appears at the bottom of the frame. The ad plays, but freezes when the actual news video starts.

Facebook shows the thumbnail for the video (will not autoplay like it does in IE) and when you click it you get the pop-up window with the user comments to the right but just a black square where the video should be playing.

If I right click and go to settings for flash, when I click disable hardware acceleration, it re-enables it as soon as I click close on the setting screen. When I go back to settings the box is checked again.

Hi There,

As of today I seem to be having a strange issue with Firefox 31, I'm unsure as to when this problem began as I haven't developed on this project for around 2 weeks. I have a PHP Development server running on localhost port 8000 using the following command: "bin\php -S localhost:8000 -c php.ini" (without quotes)

Upon trying to connect to this server via Firefox I'm presented with "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 127.0.0.1:8000." the message adjusts to show "localhost:8000" when connecting via that method, I've tried running Firefox in Safe Mode, reinstalling Firefox and also changing the network settings to "No Proxy" from "Using system proxy settings".

I'm able to connect through Chrome, IE and also by running a cURL command.

After I uninstalled Firefox, all icons returned to usual PDF icons and files were identified as "PDF" files, but when I installed Firefox (31.0) again, all PDF files again are identified as "Firefox HTML document". Extensions do not change, they are always .pdf, and files automatically open in Adobe Acrobat, but icons became "firefox HTML documents" icons and it is very confusing.

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me out, I've tried everything I can think of. I cannot play facebook (FB) videos, I get a black screen. All other videos like youtube etc play fine.

When FB tries to autoplay videos in my newsfeed I get the thumbnail as normal but the loading icon, the spinning circle is a really low res blocky one. The icon spins and then stops and the video doesn't play. If I click on a video to play it I just get a black screen. If I click on a video and change the www of the web address from www.facebook.com/... to m.facebook.com/... to force the site into Mobile version I can get videos to play.

I have tried; Removing all Add ons Resetting Firefox (FF) Reinstalling FF Creating a new FF profile Reinstalling Flash Installing an older version of Flash Reinstalling Java I've looked for anything I've got blocking videos and I can't find anything.

Next I tried in other browsers FB videos play fine in Chrome but I assume this is because it has it's own built in Flash player. FB videos do not play in IE either. Same symptoms as FF. I then disabled all my security and firewall etc. This did not resolver the issue.

I'm completely out of ideas now. Can anyone help?

Lately, the proxy authentication dialog keeps popping up every now and then. This is incredibly annoying: even though my credentials are remembered, I still have to click OK, sometimes a few times before I can proceed viewing the website. Sometime the dialog from a website on a different (background) tab pops up and disturbs me while viewing another website.

My setup is as follows: Currently, I'm using Firefox 31.0 on openSUSE 13.1 I have a cntlm proxy set up and set as my system's proxy (http_proxy and KDE's proxy settings) at http://localhost:3128 which works correctly in other applications. I tried using two settings in FF: 'Use system proxy settings' and 'Manual proxy configuration'. I tried both, checking and unchecking 'Do not prompt for authentication if password is saved' I tried a suggestion from the web, setting signon.autologin.proxy to true. I tried some proxy addon which promised to solve the issue.

None of these worked in preventing that incredibly annoying proxy authentication dialog from poppin g up (although, at times it *seemed* that I didn't get if for a longer time (that was after making the about:config modification mentioned above)).

I remember times on this machine when that did not happen, but I can't remember what I've changed that it's broken now (probably it was some FF update?).

Please, help me! I'm lost and it makes my FF very uncomfortable to use. I need some suggestions on how to configure FF in a way that *should* work, i.e. which combinations of the settings I mentioned above, or other ones I haven't considered yet.

Now, for the other error... I go to a website where the video looks like its going to start and then it turns all white with the error "html5: video not properly encoded"

I went to http://detectmybrowser.com and in the HTML5 Video Check section webm and h264 are red (meaning that I don't have those plugins I guess)

So.... how do I fix this?

In the last few weeks, firefox has often gone unresponsive, usually shown as 'not responding.' This lasts anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes (possibly longer, but by that amount of time I loose patience and 'end task' in task manager.) This is usually followed by an 'unresponsive script' error. Which script it is varies. I've been responding by clicking 'stop script,' which usually fixes the problem temporarily.

The problem seems to occur mostly randomly, but will predictably always occur on site with videos like youtube. Here it is also worse, taking much longer to resolve if it does at all. I've got flashblock active, and sometimes the error will occur before I get a chance to activate the video and sometimes after, but will always occur. Also, on this sort of site, the 'unresponsive script' error will also go unresponsive most of the time, which I've not seen anywhere else, meaning that the only solution, after a while is to end the process in task manager. I've at times attempted to play the same video for half an hour with no success.

As I've therefore spent a fair bit of time in task manager, I've noticed that I end up with many processes running for FlashPlayerPlugin_15_0_0_152.exe*32 (Description: Adobe Flash Player 15.0 r0.) They build up the more I use firefox, but go away when I restart my computer. I've gotten up to at least 50 at one point. Most use 128 or 124 K of memory, but about 1 in 7 uses between 1-5000 K. I don't know if this is linked to the above issues, but I've only noticed it since it started.

I've tried resetting firefox and it changed none of the above. If it helps, I used Windows 7. Feel free to ask for any more details about my system and I will do my best to answer, though I'm not an expert in computers. Thank you very much in advance for your help.

Hello there, Mozilla........)

I have just checked my add-ons and I have been told to update my Shockwave Flash. I clicked on 'update now' and it sent me to a page where it details potential problems with the version I have and to update to version 14.0.0175 which (I think and hope) it did update. However, when I restarted my computer, I checked again and it still is saying 'update now'. As I will honestly admit, I am not all that 'tech savvy' and am not sure what I should do next. I would be extremely grateful if someone could get back to me with some advice on what I should do.

Yours sincerely

When ever I open a new tab in Firefox, this address populates the address bar: chrome://quick_start/content/index.html. Now, I don't have anything against it, but I can't seem to get rid of it. I have been to my settings and add ons and that doesn't work. Tried to see if I could find it somewhere in my internet settings on my computer control panel. I just had somebody delete some serious virus and adware issues with my computer, and I'm sure they put this in there. How do I get it to stop? If I call the place who fixed it, they'll probably charge me for fixing it when it should be an easy fix.

The page does NOT LOAD, it just populates the address bar, and if I hit enter, then it loads...help please.

Thank you so much.
