I have Windows 7, Firefox 8. Any other browser will play YouTube except for Firefox. I have installed and ininstalled Flash, restarted each time. The You Tube page also looks funny.

I have also tried http and https.

The latest Adobe Flash plugin adds a 64-bit player as well as the standard 32-bit player. Youtube seems to set a cookie that conflicts with the 64-bit version and therefore causes you to see a black screen when trying to play videos. All you will need to do is go to the Firefox menu on the top left, then go to History -> Clear Recent History. From there, make sure both Cookies and Cache are checkmarked (feel free to uncheck everything else) and then make sure that the "Time range to clear" setting has "Everything" selected. After that, click the Clear Now button and you're done. You should now be able to play Youtube (and presumably) other videos again.

  • Flash does not play smooth in Ubuntu 10.04 using Firefox or any other browser

    ubuntu 10.04 64bit
    Firefox 3.6.3
    Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100423 Ubuntu/10.04 (lucid) Firefox/3.6.3
    Flash Player version 10,1,53,64
    I have a dual boot configuration with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04 64. While flash videos are watchable, they are not nearly as smooth in Ubuntu 10.04 64 as in Windows 7 especially when I switch to fullscreen. I use firefox as my default browser in both operating systems. Actually, I have tried the newest versions of Google Chrome, SeaMonkey, Opera and others yet the problem still remains. I have tried disabling Compiz as well. Nothing seems to help except switching to Windows 7 to watch fullscreen flash videos. While this works, it is not the solution that I would prefer. Anyone know any way to make flash videos in firefox or any other browser in linux play as well as they do in Windows?

    You're welcome. Glad I could help.
    If you haven't done so, using Disk Utility in your Applications/Utilities folder.
    Thanks for the and Aloha from Big Island.

  • Does downloading Firefox or any other browser for that matter overwrite my existing IE browser or do I still retain the choice of which browser to use?

    Can I go back to IE if I don't like Firefox?

    Hi! :) Downloading Firefox or any other browser doesn't overwrite your existing IE browser or any other browsers' files. It's 100% safe and you can go back to your previous browser at any time (it's still there for you) or even have them both open and working. You can even install many other browsers :)
    They are separate programs and work independantly without any problems (like for example: MS Word and LibreOffice Writer or Winamp and Aimp or Winrar and 7Zip etc.)

  • Snow Leopard 10.6.3 upgrade issues..  I run the full install and my computer restarts to complete the installation, but when it restarts the software has not upgraded.  Any suggestions?

    I've tried to upgrade to Snow Leopard 10.6.3.  I run the full install and my computer restarts to complete the installation, but when it restarts the software has not upgraded.  Any suggestions?

    Are you booting from the retail disc to do the installation, or running it while booted from Macintosh HD?
    It should work either way, but it doesn't always work when booted from Macintosh HD. The system files are supposed to be moved into place during the restart (while the HD is unmounted) making for a long restart time which sometimes causes people to think somethings wrong and abort it. Which is a bad move.
    If you're booting from the retail disc it's less obvious what the problem may be; however if you've tried it from booted from the HD and it's failed, then tried booting from the disc, it will fail again because the system components are already on the HD in a disc image waiting to be moved into place.
    Whichever way you were tryig, I'd try downloading OmnDiskSweeper (it's free)  and using it to see if there's a large package (around 7-10 GB) lurking somewhere that may contain the installer files. If you do, you'll need to trash that before the installer will see a 'clean' system again.
    It's also worth asking how much free space you have on your HD - if there's not enough for the installer to use for the temporary package or dmg, it'll fail.
    Was there no warning dialogue after the unsuccessful install?

  • When I begin to attempt to download the windows support software in boot camp, it says the windows support software is unavailable. Is there any other place I can download it for a Macbook Pro 5,5 intel core 2 duo without the original CD?

    When I begin to attempt to download the windows support software in boot camp, it says the windows support software is unavailable. Is there any other place I can download it for a Macbook Pro 5,5 intel core 2 duo with snow leopard without the original CD?

    Hi,
    apart from the MacBook Air this feature is of no use for other Macs right now.
    Simply ingnore it (click "I already have the Drivers...) and continue with the installation.
    Sorry to say but you need the OSX Install DVD for the BootCamp Driver installation.
    The 3.0 version of the BootCamp Drivers is only avaiable on the disc.
    Later updates (3.1 and 3.2) can be downloaded from Apples Support website.
    Call Apple and ask for a replacement and they usually send you one for a small fee.
    And have the Serial-Number of your Mac at hand when calling.
    And since the OSX Install DVD can also be vital for maintenance and repair it is best to have one.
    The needed BootCamp Drivers are on the OSX Install DVD 1 that came with your Mac.
    Insert that disc while in Windows after the Windows installation to install the drivers.
    Regards
    Stefan

  • Why are my @font-face fonts so much thicker on firefox than any other browser?

    Here is a side by side comparison of the same text in chrome and firefox. Chrome renders it correctly. [http://mvmdesign.org/other/Chrome%20Font.png Chrome Font] [http://mvmdesign.org/other/Firefox%20Font.png Firefox]

    Found the answer in another thread. Went from 7.2 GB to 1.12 GB after restore and backup.

  • I cannot upload pictures to Facebook in 'Messages' using Firefox, but every other browser will.

    I used to be able to, and have only been able to one time since. It started this in about vers. 6 I believe, and has been going on for a few weeks. I've deleted and redownloaded Firefox twice, with the error still occurring.
    Thanks,

  • Got a new MacBook pro but for some reason I can't connect to my schools wireless. It doesn't have a problem connecting to any other wifi. My schools network is unsecured all you do is login with your username and password but the window never loads

    I jus got a MacBook pro and Im having trouble connecting to my schools network. It is not secured and only requires to login with school id. A Window pops up to sign in but it never loads anyone know why I'm having this problem? Doesn't have a problem connecting to any other wifi

    "This is a flaw in OS X Lion. It does not want to connect to open WiFi that has a login page that open in a browser."
    Nonsense, no problems logging in at sites that you mention. I use OpenDNS servers. For the OP try:
    System Preferences>Network>Advanced>DNS. In the left side column click on the + sign and insert the following:
    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220
    Then click OK, then click Apply.

  • MacAir - error message "This version of itunes has not been correctly localized for this language. Please run the english version" Saw other answers for windows users, I have a MacAir. never used any other language but English

    Trying to open iTunes - get an error message saying "This version of itunes has not been correctly localized for this language. Please run the english version" Saw other answers for windows users, I have a MacAir. never used any other language but English so I have no clue what the problem is.  I just want to update my phone and back it up.

    Let's try a repair install of iTunes.
    Restart the PC first.
    If you're using Vista or 7, now head into your Uninstall a program control panel, select "iTunes" and then click "Repair".
    If you're using XP, head into your Add or Remove Programs control panel, select "iTunes", and click "Change". Select "Repair" and click "Next" as per the following screenshot:
    Can you launch your iTunes now?

  • When I closed out of yahoo email, get a blank page on every tab if any are opened. I have to exit out & restart firefox . It does not happen w/any other browser.

    When I sign off on yahoo email. I get a blank page on every tab if any are opened. I have to exit out & restart firefox . It does not happen w/any other browser. I have no malware or viruses. Please advise.

    Actually, it's not obvious & common sense would dictate that users' bookmarks would not be left stuck to random computers even once they've logged out of the account. No one wants that if it's a public work computer or if they're traveling & use an Internet cafe. As I am not the only one who has noticed this issue or had bookmarks disappear/be deleted, in addition, common sense would indicate it's not really a very good system. And carrying around a flashdrive to run Firefox off of it is a good solution? Really? Just curious why a useful feature such as being able to login & use your preferences & bookmarks & then logging out removes your preferences when you're gone hasn't been developed. Yahoo keeps my preferences when I logout (it's called My Yahoo!). Maybe a My Firefox or My Chrome solution could be developed.

    Check for 'others' in iTunes against your iPhone.
    Restore from a previous backup to reclaim some of it.
    Still want more, Restore in iTunes, setup as New.
