Why can,t I view video clips on web page? Why do I have to download them?

Every since I downloaded Firefox, I cannot view video clips on a webpage, they have to be downloaded to Firefox downloads and then viewed on Real player. This is very inconvenient. How do I go back to the way it used to be prior to downloading Firefox?

Please check if all your plugins are up-to-date. To do this, go to the Mozilla Plugin Check site.

Once you're there, the site will check if all your plugins have the latest versions. If you see plugins in the list that have a yellow Update button or a red Update now button, please update these immediately.

To do so, please click each red or yellow button. Then you should see a site that allows you to download the latest version. Double-click the downloaded file to start the installation and follow the steps mentioned in the installation procedure.
