I just rebooted and they just released Firefox ver 19.
So, I downloaded and installed and youtube and amazon prime is now working for firefox.

So was it the reboot that fixed it?

It's possible that the reboot fixed things. Or perhaps the latest version of Firefox fixed a bug. Hard to know for sure. Tracking cookies are harmless text files that certain web sites will place onto the hard drive of your computer. Your browser will then load the information into memory while you are visiting the web site. Let's say the web site is a clothing store. The cookie may remember your shirt size, color preferences, etc so navigating the web site is faster. No harm if you delete tracking cookies. Just means the next time you visit one of your favorite web sites it will have to gather your preferences again.

On the down side, that clothing store may share your info with other web sites and as you browse the internet you may find that certain advertisements keep following you. This is a marketing technique where web sites using the same advertising company share customer info with one another. So clearing out cookies periodically may be a good thing.

Why do these ads keep following me around the internet?
