When I try to play a video on the browser, i.e. a you to be video, an aid show, etc. Firefox only shows a green video window without any image, only the time bar on the bottom of the window. Could I have any help. P.D., other browsers like chrome or i.e. work o.k. Thanks.

Could you try disabling Firefox from using hardware acceleration? This is a potential workaround for incompatibilities between Firefox and your graphics card/chipset driver software. This article describes where to make that change: Firefox's performance settings. This will take effect the next time you exit Firefox and start it up again. Any difference?

Since hardware acceleration improves the appearance of fonts and animations, you may want to check whether graphics card/chipset driver updates are available for your system. This article suggests safe ways to do that: Upgrade your graphics drivers to use hardware acceleration and WebGL.


Your Firefox identified itself as version 72, which is obsolete now and has publicly disclosed security vulnerabilities. Can you update to a currently supported version of Firefox?
