I think that recently I had to update Flash version and it was all okay even after the update. But yesterday videos on YouTube all of a sudden stopped displaying. Just like that, in the morning they were okay and then around of noon, all of sudden blank. Didn't install anything new or something.. now I only get White screen with no any border, just an empty spot where the video should be. Beside that, any other flash content [i.e. videos on Facebook, vimeo are not displaying as well]. All I get on YouTube is constant "loading" indicator beside the cursor which keeps blipping.
Now the strange thing is first - I have no problems with this on other browsers like i.e. Google Chrome, and second.. IF I uninstall Flash from my PC, I can watch YouTube videos on Mozilla although the max resolution is 720p.. and vimeo/facebook videos will still not work. How da heck is that even possible? O.o
I've tried a lot of different things and nothing helped.. here are some of the them [I hope I won't forget something]
- Uninstalling Mozilla/Flash then installing them again - Uninstalling Flash, then letting Mozilla suggest me to add it - Disabling/Deleting all of my extensions - Turning off that hardware acceleration thingy - Deleting cookies from YouTube then adding them to exceptions - Clearing out whole history/cache or whatever - Right clicking on the "empty space" where video should be.. to see if any options will pop-up [Of course they don't, there is no video to start with] - Scanning for viruses [Nothing]
Can anyone please help me? Any suggestion, what can I do?

The default Chrome new-tab page ( http://i.imgur.com/RTvdGze.png ) has a search field, that when typed into, enters text directly into the url bar, allowing you to type mozilla.org ect and having it take you direct to the web page instead of just searching it. Firefox, however, doesn't do this and just searches any querys directly through the search engine.
Is it possible for to make a firefox new-tab page that works like the chrome one? Preferably, I want my new-tab page to only send data to the url bar when I've pressed the enter key, but it doesn't really matter.

UPDATE: Saturday 16 May 2015
Same problems as below now exist on THREE machines -- one Windows 7 64bit desktop, and two laptops Windows 7 64bit, all Win 7 SP1, updated with latest MS Updates.
Updated to Firefox 38.0.1 Windows 7 64bit...previous version of FF was working fine and was meticulously crafted by experienced tech user.
Now, we have two major troubles immediately happened with update to 38.0.1:
1. Will NOT close Firefox (have to use Task manager). Nothing we do within FF closes it
2. Firefox will NOT open New Private Window, only after we located a New Private Window toolbar icon will item #2 work.
Again, this is the fifth straight time after Updating FF that it suddenly creates new and not-seen-before problems.
This is NOT due to Add-Ons, it's not due to Plug-In's... it's due to a sudden new problem(s) introduced by the Updated FF 38.0.1, now on three different machines.
Starting FF in Safe Mode is tacitly useless and time-consuming, and proves nothing, allows nothing to be checked or changed, the problems remain.
When having to use Task Manager to close FF 38.0.1, restarting FF again calls in the Crashed Session Manager and we have to recover from what FF insists is a crashed session.
Why oh why are these new problems suddenly introduced each time we users update ?
Now what's been changed or altered, all without our knowledge, and not mention in ANY of the new FF notes, etc.
EVERY time we update, it's essentially introducing inferior performance and problems in an otherwise finely tuned previously working FF.
Saturday 16 May 2015: Have received no replies, no assistance or ideas from Mozilla troubleshooting or programming staff. There must be many Windows 7 64bit users seeing the same problem(s) ??
