Firefox is not working with youtube.

For whatever reason, youtube will no longer work in my firefox browser anymore. Every time I try to play a video I get a message saying "An error has occurred. Please try again later." I have tried running firefox in safe mode, but that didn't help. I believe it stopped working after I installed the newest version of Java. So I even tried uninstalling it, but that did not work either. I have the newest version of adobe flash and firefox, so I have no idea what is causing this problem.

Re: Firefox is not working with youtube.

There are a number of issues being experienced by Firefox users with the latest version of Adobe Flash. Adobe is working to resolve the problem as it appears to be a problem with their product. The problem may be with RealPlayer. You may need to downgrade to Flash version 10.3 until Adobe resolves the problems.

Re: Firefox is not working with youtube.

I have this problem too. Also, any site that uses flashplayer no longer works. However, I can bypass both problems by running Firefox in "Run as Administrator" mode. You might want to give that a try.
