    Youtube not working correctly using Firefox


    Laptop Lenovo Ideapad 300 Windows 10.
    Youtube works perfectly using Internet Explorer. But using Firefox youtube will not play unless I hit pause
    and then play. It's weird but I don't think it's on my end. I started with the basics in disabling all FF addons
    to no avail. I even booted an external USB cloned hard drive I made last week or so when FF youtube was working.
    But even this cloned drive does the same thing. Open youtube, choose a clip, it sits there looking stupid for a few
    seconds and then says to reset and try again at which time I hit pause/play and it goes merrily on its way.
    Besides using a cloned drive I downloaded a couple older versions of FF also to no avail. I'm using FF 40.0.2.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thanks.*Cool

    :)

  2. Windows 10 N - Media Feature Pack not working after November Update

    After the November update I had to reinstall the Media Feature Pack (KB3010081) in order for Firefox to use YouTube and Groove Music to work correctly. After a successful installation, neither work. YouTube only shows 360p with no H.264 encoding and Groove
    Music says I am suppose to install the Feature Media Pack.

    I already tried a Systemrestore and reinstalled the update but still no luck. It seems I am not the only one with this problem. Is this a Windows 10 N November Update bug?

  3. Win 10 64 bit. Get no sound using firefox browser

    I try to listen to youtube music using the Firefox browser but get no sound. I do get sound on YouTube when I use Internet Explorer 11 or Chrome but want to continue to use Firefox.

    Does anyone know how to fix?

    Why do not you update Firefox? Version 40 is a year old, version 49 is already out.

    Sorry for the typo but I was running version 48.0.2 (not 40.0.2). Now I have 49.0b10 with same results.
    If you followed the op, isn't it weird my cloned system from last week did work but is doing same thing now?
    Click pause, then play and away it goes as it should. Am I being picky? Well, yes. I expect it to work correctly.
    Thanks for the responses.

  7. If you have any extensions installed, disable all of them and check. Try youtube using Firefox Portable as well.

    Youtube not working correctly using Firefox

    I had the latest version of Flash until it was upgraded again about an hour ago.
    As stated above I disabled all FF add-ons which are plugins and extensions.
    This is so weird and I am not a novice. With a computer and networking engineering background I must say
    I'm stumped. I booted a cloned drive that worked when I did that but has same prob now. Funny. *Party
    Not life or death but I'm not one to leave things dangling. I will get to the bottom eventually and will advise.
    Just for grins I may put an older drive with W7 just to appease my puny mind.
    Thanks for your input. *Cool

    No one can help as much as I can help myself. *Cool

    Just to add all is well now. Just needed to start a new year. Oh, I'll be upset again this new year also
    anytime after 1/20/2017 keeled over. Someone elected a clown and now it's a 3 ring circus circle-jerk. *Banghead
