Hello Pam.

Go into Tools > Add-ons > Plugins and see if Flash is installed. If not, install it ( ). That should let you watch YouTube videos.

If you already have Flash in your Firefox, make sure it's up to date. If it is and it still doesn't work on YouTube, you may be having a problem with some extension or plugin that is hindering your Firefox's normal behavior. Have you tried disabling all add-ons, except Flash (just to check), to see if Firefox goes back to normal?
