    FF33 update.

    Has anyone had problems with BBC IPlayer videos since the latest FF update. Its asking for Java to be installed, but it already is.

    I'm currently streaming Songs of Praise (I think) without any problems in FF, but I've upgraded to v33.01 and have that OpenH264 set to Never Activate - if that's any help.

    Any video in particular ? - I have Java disabled in all browsers.

    BBC iPlayer doesn't use Java, but it does need JavaScript: BBC iPlayer Help: Javascript – How to enable it

    I had problems, but right clicked on the blank screen and changed the settings to accept session cookies. This solved it.

    A visit to about:config - javascript enabled fixed it. I should know the difference between JAVA and java script by now.
