    WTF?

    The movies buffer, plays three seconds, then stops. If I move the slider, same thing, plays three seconds then stops.

    This all started after the most recent FF update (day or so ago).

    Ideas?

    I saw something similar. Use the Video DownloadHelper extension to download the videos, then play them back using Riva FLV Player.

    I don't want to do that. I want to play them on pages like I was able to do two days ago. =/

    Uninstall FF, then delete the program folder, reinstall FF, then download the flash plugin.
    All of that will only take you 5 minutes.

    To reinstall the flashplayer, just click on a youtube video with FF open, and let it install it automatically.
