I cannot load videos from tumblr on any tumblr webpage using the Firefox browser? How can I remedy this?

I'm using a MacBook Pro & up to date on all updates. The video seems to be loading, according to the icon in the lower right corner, but it never loads. I've done the trouble shooting for plugins page offered by Mozilla and tried disabling each plugin, then systematically activating each one, but still no go. Thanks for your time and consideration.

If you have problems with current Shockwave Flash plugin versions then check this:

  • see if there are updates for your graphics drive drivers

  • disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)

There have been many times I go to a page with a video, but the video will not play. But I also discovered that my download managers were active. So what I do is download the video. No problem now.

Thank you very much for all of your advice and support. Unfortunately, after trying all of these things, still nothing works. I can play a video on the MTV's twitter account, but I cannot play the same video on their tumblr account. Any further advice? Thank you for your help!

It could be an issue with a blocking or anti-virus program.
