I am using Firefox 43.0.1 on Windows Vista SP1. First off, no comments pls about updating my system or OS. The problem is with Youtube and the message, "You must have Adobe Flash to watch this video" when I have the latest Adobe flash player installed. Some videos play, others do not and give me this message. The inconsistency is maddening. I used the uninstall flash player, then installed version 21.0 of Adobe Active X for firefox, yet the video I want to watch won't play. Then I installed the youtube flash player 46.0 that lets me switch between playing the video using HTML5 or the flash player. The video I want to watch won't play, but the ones I don't want to watch do play.
What. The. Heck. is. Going. ON.
This is so stupid.
I can get the video to play using IE version 8, but not Firefox 43--a browser supposedly better and one that is some six years(!!!!!) newer, and IE has it beat over firefox. Why? Why is youtube picking and choosing which videos I can watch and which ones I cannot? I have adblock plus turned off for the youtube page and it didn't make a difference.
