A Hot Key is a combination of keys that you can press to do something or go somewhere without having to go thru any menus.
In the above instruction; <Control>(Mac=<Command>) <Shift> A)
Hold down the <Control> key. Or if you're on a Mac, the <Command> key. Then press the A. This opens the Add-ons Manager.
Forgot to add; In the above you must also hold down the <Shift> key to open the Main manager window. Without opens the manager in a sidebar.

Would you do this please:
Also take a look at:
As a Windows XP user, you probably know that with more and more sites going to an HTML5 media player and some no longer offering an alternate Flash version, the number of sites on which you can watch video in Firefox is shrinking. (Because Firefox's HTML5 video player needs the Microsoft Media Foundation to decode MP4 video and Microsoft only released it for Vista and newer.) If this is the problem on Fox News, they may be losing another viewer... but you also could check out this workaround (I haven't tried it myself): http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/175591-enable-mp4-h264-aac-html5-video-in-firefox-on-windows-xp-without-flash/
Or it could be something else completely.
I don't know if this relates to the problem with FOX News videos that you are having, but see my answer here - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1147860#answer-938308
There's something wrong with the FOX News website videos, and it seems to be a lot worse in Firefox 50 than in the older versions that also tested there this morning.

Cache & Cookies:
(1) Clear Firefox's Cache
If you have a large hard drive, this might take a few minutes. If you do not see the number going down on the page, you can reload it using Ctrl+r to check progress.
(2) Remove the site's cookies (save any pending work first). While viewing a page on the site, try either:
- right-click (on Mac Ctrl+click) a blank area of the page and choose View Page Info > Security > "View Cookies"
- (menu bar) Tools > Page Info > Security > "View Cookies"
- click the padlock or "i" icon in the address bar, then the ">" button, then More Information, and finally the "View Cookies" button
In the dialog that opens, the current site should be pre-filled in the search box at the top of the dialog so you can remove that site's cookies individually.
Then try reloading the page. Does that help?
Thanks for the multiple ways of removing cookies, fun to try. However, nothing better regarding main issue of playing Fox News videos.
Did you already test in Firefox's Safe Mode? In Safe Mode, Firefox temporarily deactivates extensions, hardware acceleration, and some other advanced features to help you assess whether these are causing the problem.
If Firefox is not running: Hold down the Shift key when starting Firefox.
If Firefox is running: You can restart Firefox in Safe Mode using either:
- "3-bar" menu button > "?" button > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
- Help menu > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
and OK the restart. (Flash isn't disabled in Safe Mode.)
Both scenarios: A small dialog should appear. Click "Start in Safe Mode" (not Refresh).
Hadn't tried that technique before, but did just now with no change in results. I've emailed Fox News support the 3rd time, they say they're working on my problem. I told them until they fix issue, I've started going to youtube and playing Fox News videos there so I can keep up somewhat with the news, though its not the same or as up to date.
