So I have been using Firefox to watch various videos on my PC for a while, and never had any issues. Earlier in the week I ran into an issue with the picture on the videos I will be watching freezing at a certain point. Usually when this occurs, the sound will continue to run, but the picture on the screen will just stay frozen. And to clarify, it is just the picture in the video that freezes, no issues with Firefox freezing. Also, it is important to note that at times the sound will hop to the end of the video (while the video continues the play at the point it was at), and I have even seen the picture freeze with the sound hopping to the end of the video.

To clarify, when the video picture freezes, there is no way (that I have found at least) to move beyond that point in the video. In essence, the video is useless after this issue pops up: something such as buffering does not solve the issue.

I noticed this issue only after my PC upgraded to Firefox 37.0.1. While I am not 100% certain the issues started after the upgrade, I am fairly certain, as I ran a video in chrome and it worked without any hitches. That led me to believe it is a Firefox issue, hence why I am asking it here. I prefer Firefox to chrome, so I hope someone can help me out in resolving this issue so I can stick with Firefox.

Any remedies?

Thanks in advance for all the help :)

Can I provide any more info to spark some answers? Let me know if I left any gaps that make resolving the issue challenging.

Videos, like mp4 Vines, won't play in Firefox. Same with the media files like podcasts in rss feeds. All used to work fine. This is an intermittent problem with Firefox ( might be due to updates ) but it doesn't happen with IE or Chrome

If i uninstall VLC player or disable the VLC plugin, nothing happens If i have those installed but the VLC plugin is set to " Never activate ", i can right click on the video image, click " Play " and it opens in VLC player and works perfectly. If i have the plugin set to " always activate " then i see a black square and the message " the video can't be played because the file is corrupt "

Windows 8.1, Firefox 35.

This is an issue with Firefox and needs to be resolved.

I have installed the 64bit Firefox, removing the prior Firefox program. Now, when I click on a mp4 and choose to open with, browsing to Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/Firefox.exe and clicking does nothing even when set as 'default' opening program. Am I to have the 32 bit installed into program files x86 or is there something else I need to do? Before when Firefox was installed, it was under program files x86, then the change to Quantum, (ran fine, I could use to view mp4 files), a computer crash with 'Cannot repair member file [l:30{15}]"mozilla.browser"', a new install with change folder 'old firefox', removed prior install of Firefox (one with older install date), now have issue that can't use to open mp4 file from computer.

So thanks to your update today I can no longer watch videos via prime or netflix due to a Widevine.Cdm error.

That's fantastic, especially as Microsoft are moving to Chromium, you're really selling your service.

Flash player is either screwed up or something else - or Firefox is blocking videos. Having experienced problems (videos just sit there or won't load at all) I've just uninstalled Flash Player and am attempting to reinstall a new version - but it won't let me. Seemingly there's another version being loaded - but no way can I find that or know what's happening, so I'm stuck.

The whole thing stems from my inability to watch any videos on Firefox - not even YouTube, BBCi LiveLeak clips or even porn. Yesterday everything went well but today I can't even see gifs on Imgur. What the hell is happening? Why is Firefox blocking me?
