YouTube and Flash - the epic conflict - how to edit firefox about:config?


I got pictures!

in one it shows that stupid 'F' (flash logo) and sometimes has an arrow there to click and it is suppose to start that video. but it does not. then I went into conf and found a line in there about it, and want to get rid of it if I can to see if that fixes this issue with Firefox no longer showing youtube videos (with me anyways.)

so does anyone know how to delete the line which will prob end up destroying the entire Firefox app to the point of having to do a reinstall of it but that is ok.

their is only one way to find out. trial and error.
