Potentially related SuMo thread: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1052639 Website's MP3s played in the native player in Firefox 35 but will not play in Firefox 36. A re-encoded version will play in Firefox 36 (sample link provided). The difference between the media is not obvious to the lay person.
Pardon me, but I have something to share. For some time now, I have landed on a web page with a clip on it. Sometimes, the clip that is suppose to play does not play. I used to think it was because the clip was no longer available. However, I have several download helpers on my Firefox, and they became active on many of those web pages. When I select to download the clip, it gets download without a problem. Also, the plugin symbol on the address bar is displayed. So Firefox knows the clip is there, and can download it. It just can't play it. Videos and audios.
Mass closing because of inactivity. Please feel free to re-open if still relevant.
