videos not showing on a site?

Hello,

Recently an adult site I go to, which features videos, isn't working: I can get to site, but nothing shows up on the screen. I've always had 'strict' privacy and adblocking protections, but something seems to have changed. This started happening maybe three weeks ago?

I did follow Mozilla instructions, and clicked on the 'shield' next to the address, changed 'enhance tracking' to off for this site. But that didn't solve the problem. What would be the next thing to try?

Thanks in advance!

Is it just the one website, or are there others? Does the page load properly other than the video?

Are there any error messages?


Make sure you are not blocking content.

Thank you for the reply.

Isn't happening on any other website.

The page loads properly, but with nothing there.

No error messages.

I am using blockers, but I don't think I added anything new? I will try the links your provide, though I'm only a simply man, not a super computer savvy guy.

Again, thank you.

Ah ha! It was the Extension Ghostery!

I went through one by one and turned each one off, and this is the one. Weird, since I've had Ghostery for a while? Did they upgrade or something? Or...change?

Anyways, solved.

You would have to ask Ghostery support on that. Safe surfing.
