Videos no longer playing after Firefox upgrade

  CurlyWhirly 21:14 17 Apr 2008

Earlier on today I upgraded to Firefox version and ever since I have not been able to play videos at click here although they play okay in IE7

Anyone else find this or is it just me?

Any suggestions on what to do to get things back to normal?


p.s. I was using version before the upgrade (when the videos were playing fine)

I have updated FF same as you and video at BBC plays just fine.

Sorry but I cannot offer any solution at this time.

"play ok at other video sites?"

Yes the videos work okay on click here

I'm wondering if it's something to do with java or javascript?

p.s. also the videos work okay on click here as well so it only appears to be the BBC site that's affected!

Never mind as I can use IE7 for viewing clips on the beeb ;)

I have exactly the same problem with FF. I now have to use IE for BBC News. If anyone can offer a solution that will be TWO happy users!

Glad I'm not the only one with the problem ;)

I even updated to Java Version 6 Update 5 from Version 6 Update 3 but it made no difference.

I used click here

I solved it !

After updating my Java installation (above) I noticed that I had 2 Java entries in add/remove programmes so I removed the older entry i.e. Version 6 Update 3
