Try going here click here
Right click on the video and click on settings.Untick the enable hardware acceleration box.This fixed a similar problem for me although I was able to hear audio?Worth a try though.

Pleased you're up and running again ..
I agree about LastPass - I love it
You may want to have a look at X-Marks (was foxmarks) good for backing up bookmarks/favoutites to their servers and syncing multiple computers - each can have their own profile (much better IMO than the FF sync option )
Bookmarks are then available online too

Xmarks nearly folded but are now part of the LastPass company
