First attempt to play a video plays instantly, but clicking any video I've viewed since a cache clear or if I refresh the page, the videos load shifted to the right (no sidebar video list). After a second, the sidebar loads in pushing the video to the 'normal' position, and as soon as this happens the video--that has played around 1 second--fails.

I have disabled all addons, refreshed firefox, disabled HW accel. Starting Firefox in safemode completely breaks it and I can't even navigate to a page, let alone test YouTube. I've reinstalled only 2 of the addons I had before since they're clearly not the issue.

Win10 1803, Firefox Quantum 61, Nvidia GTX 1080ti (driver WHQL 398.36)

A video at a Web site where I have often accessed videos now tells me the video is inaccessible because of "privacy and security settings." I don't think I have changed the settings since the last time I watched a video. In any case I have not been able to find the problem. I have tried the options for cookie settings without fixing the problem. What should the settings be?

A .mp4 video clip on the web will play through f/f but with no sound. A .mp3 audio clip plays ok. The laptop sound controls are not muted. The mp4 clip shows a bar at the bottom and on the right there's a symbol that looks like a speaker with a bar through it. There seems no way to change this. The mp4 clip will play perfectly in WMP and from the website on a Samsung phone.

Yes hello, as the title says some videos go slow after i pause em to look on something else, specifically in a site called animeplus.tv i watch the videos there, then i pause em for a bit to check for something else, or another video in another site or well whichever reason, the thing is when i return to this video and resume playing it, it gets very slow playback, the audio is fine, but the video itself is not working properly, so far i just seen this issue happen in that website but perhaps is the flash player? i dunno i removed a addon that i though could be the issue but is not. and when i try this on Google Chrome, it works fine, i pause the video check for other stuff, and the video still plays like normal. so i am hoping for some ideas in what to do cause i do like Firefox and i do not want to transfer over to another browser.

In Firefox video frames don't scale properly. This affects both HTML5 videos e.g. youtube.com and Flash videos e.g. twitch.tv. When switching to Cinema view in youtube, or closing the side panels in twitch, the frame will extend to the left and right, leaving black bars at the side, but the video does not scale and the frame does not increase in height. I don't have the issue in Safe Mode and also not in Chrome. However I still have the issue in Firefox with all extensions disabled. I tried to delete cookies, cache and refresh Firefox, but the issue still exists. I also tried to disable Hardware acceleration in both the Flash Player and Firefox, but that also does not solve the issue.

When playing a video in background / different tab, the picture (screen) freezes after a few seconds, while sound still going on. It can be resolved by moving over the video picture with mouse cursor again, but it is nagging... Any idea what causes this? I noticed it in Youtube, but also Facebook videos...

hey guys, i wasnt sure where i could put this info, i have discovered some info regarding the "FLASH PLAYER PLUGIN." that doesnt seem to be documented on any kb article or support thread, so hopefully one of you will be able to help getting this submitted. obviously this wont fix everyone's problem, but it should be included.

THE PROBLEM::

Flash Player Hanging or Crashing (unable to watch flash/video content) Script has become unresponsive error message when trying to view flash/video content

THE SOLUTION:

a possible cause to this problem is that you have lost permissions to the file directory where flash is actually stored. without these permissions you will be unable to properly utilize the flash plugin on firefox.

to fix the problem we will need to update the security settings on the flash directory.

for 32 bit machines: C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash

for 64 bit machines: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash

navigate to the \Macromed\ folder and right click on the flash folder and select properties. click on the security tab at the top of this box then on the advanced button at the bottom of this box. after navigating to this screen, you will need to click change permissions. first make sure there is no deny statement which is denying access to this folder, if one exists, remove it. second make sure that the name "Everyone" has the abilty to read and execute, to do this: click on everyone, then edit. next, select: apply any changes to: "This folder, subfolders, and files." this is at the top of the edit box. after you click ok to the changes you made, you will need to enable the option: "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object." now click the apply button, then ok button. now check to see if firefox is working.


if you find that you are unable to change these permissions, then you lost access to the parent folders as well and they are replacing child object permissions. you will need to apply the solution above to the parent folder that is overriding the permissions. this will either be: \system32\ or \SysWOW64\ depending on your machine or possibly even the \Windows\ folder.

If you find that these parent folders indeed had their permissions lost, then you have likely acquired some malware. You should download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and do an update and full scan.

Last night around 8pm I watched a Youtube video without a problem, closed my browser and did other things for awhile. When I got back on at about 10pm and tried to watch another video the video suddenly stopped a few seconds, gave me "An error has occurred" then suddenly the video started again at the point it stopped but now there was a little bracket at the stopping/restart point (see image attachment). This wouldn't be a problem if it happened once in awhile but since last night it happens with EVERY video regardless of length or quality. In fact, sometimes it forces me to watch it on the highest quality and makes the other options unavailable. If I try to refresh it takes a LONG or simply refreshes forever. And heaven forbid I should have any other windows or tabs open when this happens because they'll suddenly stop loading or get REALLY laggy. I have no choice but to watch Youtube in IE which works surprisingly well and doesn't do any of the crap I've just described.

Everything is up-to-date. I have cleared cashe, temp files, cookies and history. I have not downloaded or installed anything in the last 24 hours. I've asked other people who use FF about this and they all say it's fine so I don't know what to do anymore.
