• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Weird Youtube problem

For some reason suddenly I can't watch videos on the regular Youtube page. They won't even load on the page, there is just a black box where they should be. I can go to my "channel" and videos play just fine there, but won't play on the main video browsing page. Youtube hosted videos on other sites that are embedded on those sites play just fine also.

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing both Firefox and Adobe Flash player and plug-in. Everything works fine in IE.

I really would like to continue to use Firefox, but if I can't fix this, I will have to abandon it and maybe try Opera.

Any ideas?

Running under Vista SP2 on an older Dell XPS 410.

When I got my HP win7 I use FF on youtube and kept crashing I did the samething you did. Now its been running okay but I think FF update is messed up again.

Are you using NoScript in Firefox? If so, Whitelist youtube.com. Javascript has to be enabled for the page in order to see a video.

I got it. I needed to delete all the Mozilla folders in Program Files and App Data. Then the re-install fixed the issue. Yay. Thanks for replies.
