Windows 7: Any one else having video issues with latest version of Waterfox?

Any one else having video issues with latest version of Waterfox?

Last Monday I had to reinstall Win 7 ult 64-bit. Several days later (after all the updates...old disk) I installed browsers Wednesday. My fav is Waterfox but when I went to view a site with video on it, there was no video. Unlike in the past, there is no hint for plugin, but I figured that's what I needed. That did not help. Tried FF and had same issue. IE was the only browser that worked, and I tried 3 different sites (Adobe, Corel, CreativeLIVE) with same issues. So I uninstalled all browsers other than IE and Chrome.

Today I decided to retry Waterfox, and updated to the latest update from today I believe. Had the same trouble. Has anyone else experienced this issue, and better, solved it? I'm out of options, but hate to give up on what has been an excellent browsing experience until now.

So there ya have it, I figured it out, YES!!!

If you have this issue try right-clicking the page, click on view page info, then click on permissions tab and allow add-ons and to allow knowledge of location. Waterfox didn't apply the flash player until I did that evidently (or best I can figure). I had already updated and put in a plugin that was activated and still wouldn't play until those permissions were done. Now that it's installed I may be able to change it back, but not sure.

I'm so happy, I'm doing the SWEET got it dance! I have my fav browser back....oh yeah!

Cheers, Suzie
