hey guys, i wasnt sure where i could put this info, i have discovered some info regarding the "FLASH PLAYER PLUGIN." that doesnt seem to be documented on any kb article or support thread, so hopefully one of you will be able to help getting this submitted. obviously this wont fix everyone's problem, but it should be included.

THE PROBLEM::

Flash Player Hanging or Crashing (unable to watch flash/video content) Script has become unresponsive error message when trying to view flash/video content

THE SOLUTION:

a possible cause to this problem is that you have lost permissions to the file directory where flash is actually stored. without these permissions you will be unable to properly utilize the flash plugin on firefox.

to fix the problem we will need to update the security settings on the flash directory.

for 32 bit machines: C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash

for 64 bit machines: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash

navigate to the \Macromed\ folder and right click on the flash folder and select properties. click on the security tab at the top of this box then on the advanced button at the bottom of this box. after navigating to this screen, you will need to click change permissions. first make sure there is no deny statement which is denying access to this folder, if one exists, remove it. second make sure that the name "Everyone" has the abilty to read and execute, to do this: click on everyone, then edit. next, select: apply any changes to: "This folder, subfolders, and files." this is at the top of the edit box. after you click ok to the changes you made, you will need to enable the option: "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object." now click the apply button, then ok button. now check to see if firefox is working.


if you find that you are unable to change these permissions, then you lost access to the parent folders as well and they are replacing child object permissions. you will need to apply the solution above to the parent folder that is overriding the permissions. this will either be: \system32\ or \SysWOW64\ depending on your machine or possibly even the \Windows\ folder.

If you find that these parent folders indeed had their permissions lost, then you have likely acquired some malware. You should download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and do an update and full scan.

Last night around 8pm I watched a Youtube video without a problem, closed my browser and did other things for awhile. When I got back on at about 10pm and tried to watch another video the video suddenly stopped a few seconds, gave me "An error has occurred" then suddenly the video started again at the point it stopped but now there was a little bracket at the stopping/restart point (see image attachment). This wouldn't be a problem if it happened once in awhile but since last night it happens with EVERY video regardless of length or quality. In fact, sometimes it forces me to watch it on the highest quality and makes the other options unavailable. If I try to refresh it takes a LONG or simply refreshes forever. And heaven forbid I should have any other windows or tabs open when this happens because they'll suddenly stop loading or get REALLY laggy. I have no choice but to watch Youtube in IE which works surprisingly well and doesn't do any of the crap I've just described.

Everything is up-to-date. I have cleared cashe, temp files, cookies and history. I have not downloaded or installed anything in the last 24 hours. I've asked other people who use FF about this and they all say it's fine so I don't know what to do anymore.

Hello,

I have been experiencing issues with the rendering of the navigation menu to the left of https://www.youtube.com/. This problem only occurs when I am signed into an account. I have not been able to replicate it when not signed into YouTube. Normally when I power on my computer and open YouTube, it renders just fine until I refresh the page or click a video then go back to the home page

So far I have tried to:

  • Refresh the page
  • Clear all cookies, cache and data
  • Disable all my extensions
  • Go into incognito and sign into either one of my accounts (problem occurred on both)
  • Relaunch Firefox and restart my computer
  • Check for updates on my computer and for Firefox (everything is up to date)
  • Try the beta of Firefox (uninstalled the beta once I found the same problem)

Unfortunately, non of these solutions have worked and I did test this in two different browsers (edge and chrome) where it successfully rendered it both times. I have included a screenshot that shows what I mean by not rendering.

Thank you for your time

Running 37.0 Firefox on Windows 7 - 64 bit. All updates updated. Flash is 17,0,0,134 and checks out at Adobe site.

This afternoon YouTube videos stopped playing. In the center of the frame are circling dots. The video appears to have loaded, as I can move the time slider and see frames at the various times, I just does not play, just gives the circling "loading" dots. YouTube runs fine in IE. In Foxfire, if I go to other sites, like news and videos/ads play just fine.

I disabled all add-ons, set Shockwave & Flash to "always activate" and still the YouTube videos will not play. Seem to download, just not play.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Seriously guys.

I was in the middle of a video on youtube, firefox gives me the "close program or wait" option. I click wait, but it still crashes. Whatever, right? Just re-start it and go back to my video.... Nope. Nada.

Firefox's nifty little "updating" dialog box appears. I thought to myself aloud, "hmm, I do not remember agreeing to an update... let alone firefox inquiring about one."

But what do I know, right? It's probably a new add-on, or an update to the add-ons and plug ins I've installed. It happens.

ALAS!!! Firefox opens anew, but is lacking in quite the pivotal things! One of which being the top address bar. The whole thing is gone. Vanished! Vahmooshed! GAHN!!!

My first thought was that I had accidentally hit F-11. Joke's on me, right?

nope.


Because not only is the everything up top missing, but also my whole Windows bar at the bottom has gone missing. What in the blue blazing cahones of Zeus is going on guys!?

If this is an easy fix, I apologize in advance. I'm not so suhmart sumteyems. Hurr durr.

But, if this is some form of "full screen" layout that you guys are unveiling, please give me a way to quarantine it from my computer. It's awful, like flossing with razorwire while naked in front of Grandma. I don't recommend it!!!


But seriously. I know I've attempted to be humorous above, heck, even my username is an attempt at comedy. But I do have a genuine issue, and would appreciate an answer of some kind.

Thank you in advance for not replying with (tl;dr).

It no longer shows the number of views for youtube videos, and when something (a video or comment) has more than 1000 likes, it just says "1K" instead of showing the precise number.

Is there some reason why Firefox doesn't want us to see the number of people who have viewed a video? Do they have something against precision with numbers over 1000?

I know that it isn't youtube that has changed its format, because the formatting of youtube is still exactly the same as it was on Internet Explorer. So why has Firefox decided to downgrade the formatting of youtube, and how do I change it back? Do they want me to just view all youtube videos on Internet Explorer instead?

You know the saying, if it isn't broken, don't fix it? That saying very much applies here. Please fix this problem, or tell me what I can do to fix it. Thank you.

For the last few days I've been having an issue with Youtube videos where the video player will appear way smaller than it's supposed to be. This happens even with all extensions disabled and zoom reset (I attached two screenshots to show the difference, dark mode one is firefox, light mode is chrome). I believe this may be a problem with Firefox in general, since it seems like a similar issue applies to other websites. For example, the Twitter sidebar has gotten big enough to need a scrollbar of its own (normally it doesnt need this).
