Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:33.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0
Build ID: 20141013200257

Steps to reproduce:

I started Firefox after an updat eon Linux Mint 17 to version 33.0


Actual results:

When I went to CNN.com or sometimes YOUTUBE.COM, the video area would remain blank or black. No video played. 


Expected results:

The video should have played. As a workaround I right clicked on the video section of the screen and selected "Reload in Adobe Flash Player" and the video ran fine.
