Windows 7: Suddenly, YouTube videos won't start with a Mouse click anymore?

Windows 7 x64
Suddenly, YouTube videos won't start with a Mouse click anymore?

Running a Dell Studio-15 laptop with Windows 7-64 in Firefox, when I left-click my mouse on the start button of a YouTube video the video does not start. Nothing happens. Other non-YouTube video types start & run normally in Firefox. And in IE, YouTube videos starts and run normally.

And I can run YouTube videos OK with Firefox on my XP computer.

I discovered this problem after I updated my VLC player from v2.2.0 to v2.2.1. So far, based on some web pages I found with Google, I modified the Adobe mmc.cfg file as it is recommended below but that didn't fix it.

What could explain this?

I've noticed for a month now that sometimes (and this happens like 45% of the time) when I open a youtube video, it does not respond when I try to pause it, play it, toggle the volume button, fast forward by dragging the little dot, expanding the video to full screen). Everything else works, the...
