 YouTube Vids Issue

Postby sharkboi » Wed Jan 28, 2015 8:09 am


A minor problem has arisen for me....
My default browser is Firefox, I use the Portable version, now at version 35.0.1
http://portableapps.com/news/2015-01-26--firefox-portable-35.0.1-released

Starting at the last version (35.0) I can no longer see embedded YouTube vids on auscelebs, but I can see them OK on other sites.
If I open Google Chrome Portable or Internet Explorer I can see them on this site.

I only have one FF addon relating to YouTube to stop autoplay, I disabled that but still no luck.
Any other Firefox users on the site, are you having any problems?

I use Firefox 35.0.1, but not the portable version.

I have no problem with the embedded videos here, or anywhere else.

Maybe it's something to do with the "portable" bit. :scratch:

Sorted, I've just spent 3 hours checking addons for problems, turned out to be the Flashblock addon, apparently it hasn't been updated for the latest FF versions!

Now I have to put up with bloody flash ads and videos playing wherever I go... :evil:

I use Adblock plus, it works really well. :thumright:

I use Adblock too, but there are so many web sites now who add animated flash content to pages that aren't ads, that play automatically, real PITA!

What about Noscript?

I like Noscript, but it can be frustrating sacrificing functionality on a site unless you have the time to pick and choose what scripts you will allow.
Generally, I trust Noscript; if I get to a point of giving permission to a site I'm unsure about, I just leave the target website and not return.

Tried Noscript, found it too much work.
I use YesScript, which is much simpler, come across a site that does stuff you don't like just click the icon and it's added to the blacklist.
