firefox flash player problem(youtube)
 
Problem: some videos on youtube don't play in firefox(that loading circle in the center appears and it seems like it loads forever) though the same videos play fine in browser epiphany.
Some videos in firefox seem to play fine but some not.
That problem didn't bother me until recently. I don't remember maybe I updated my system packages and firefox was one of them. Anyway reinstalling firefox didn't help and changing my ~/.mozilla directory too.

I've got firefox 2.0.0.4 running on my arch linux duke(I don't think the problem is distro related though). I have few plugins installed in ~/.mozilla/plugins:
Code:

flashplayer.xpt    libjavaplugin_oji.so  libunixprintplugin.so
libflashplayer.so  libnullplugin.so      nppdf.so

And my mozilla plugin path variable is set to ~/.mozilla/plugins.

p.s. some people might think it's not that big of problem but I'm tired of having to launch epiphany every time I want to see youtube videos.

I figured it out. Somehow my firewall blocked this connections for firefox and allowed them for epiphany. Guess I need to configure it first.
