I can not watch videos on other pages than youtube. Even if it is a youtube movie link or different type of video. The area where the video is supposed to be is just a blank area and when I press it the video starts and I can hear the audio, but not see the video. I have tried all the fixes I could find, different plug-ins, upgraded my plug-ins, downgraded the flash player from 11.2 or 3 to 10.3 and so on.
I have Firefox 17 and have downgraded my flash player to 10.3. I also have RealPlayer installed (but not as a plugin?).
I can see the videos no problem in Internet Explorer but they are blank in Firefox and I only hear audio. On pages with youtube videos can watch them if I copy the URL and load to youtube video in a different tab, but this is to cumbersome.
Try the Firefox Safe Mode to see how it works there. The Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most add-ons.
(If you're not using it, switch to the Default theme.)
You can open the Firefox 4.0+ Safe Mode by holding the Shift key when you use the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
Or use the Help menu item and click on the Restart with Add-ons Disabled... menu item while Firefox is running.
Don't select anything right now, just use "'Start in Safe Mode"To exit the Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before using the Firefox shortcut (without the Shift key) to open it again.If it is good in the Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one.
