You Tube on Firefox 3.6.18 64-bit

This is not new, I'm just tired of it.

I cannot seem to watch You Tube movies using Firefox 3.5.18,
it works fine when I try to watch the same movie using Seamonkey 2.0.11.

When I go to a link using, Firefox, I see:

"Undefined's Channel, Subscribe, and Uploads" below the movie, I see:

"Warning: this video is not set to use HTML5. If you have not, go to and join the beta."

I've joined the beta, and still see this.

This is Mint Linux 10, 64-bit, and not an issue on my laptop, Mint Linux 9, 32-bit.

Could Firefox simply need updating?

Considering 3.5 is rather old, the current Firefox is 7.0.1, don't think 3.5 supported html5.
