    Firefox won't play in-site videos

    In Firefox, when I go to a site containing a video, I can click on it and get to the start screen, but I can't get it to play. Disabling Adblock Plus doesn't help. I'm running Flashblock, but it should let the video play by clicking on it.

    The video plays fine in Internet Explorer.

    I disabled Java in response to zero-day the warnings. Is that the problem, and if so, is it safe to re-enable it?

    Fire Fox does not contain Adobe Flash by default. I suspect this might be your problems.

    All typing errors are my own work and subject to patents pending. Except errors by the spell checker. And that has its own patients.

    I installed the Shock-Wave Flash plugin from the Adobe site, but the videos still don't play. Do I need to activate it, or get it through the Mozilla site as a FF-specific plugin?
