I've followed any information I could find for trouble shooting Flash. This includes doing an un-install and a cold install of the most recent version of Flash. No video site will work. Any site that even has a video will not run the video; Includes Twitter vine and imbedded links . I'm stumped. I really don't know much and I always stop by FF online support first. I always follow any advice given there and most of the time I'm a happy camper. Doesn't take much to make me happy. Right now I'm unhappy. Any ideas would be appreciated. AND, is there a stable version of FF available? Some how I ended up getting beta updates, I assume they're a nightly release, and there seems to be some issue most of the time. Usually minor, but just enough to make me chronically aware of the updates. I restart Win7x64 at least every 24 hours due to my video work, and frequently restart FF.

Thanx for your support. Seems that all the problems were fixed by resetting FF. Then sorting thru the extensions so eliminate anything I really don't need. I really don't know, but it seems that some of the extensions don't play well with others.

I did try your idea first, ant as my frustration level rose, the idea of resetting became more attractive. It's good to have it as a fall back fix for some of the more confusing issues.

Hello, the version of Firefox you are running is a beta version. It's recommended for general users to download the stable release. Which is currently Firefox 38.0.1. You can download it from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

And if you want to continue with Firefox 39.0, you may give it a try:

  • Type about:preferences#advanced at your navigation bar. (where you type websites adress)
  • In General tab, at bottom you'll find Use hardware acceleration when available
  • Uncheck it if checked. Restart Firefox
