Confirmed in OS X 10.6 nightly. This page works in 16.0a2, so a regression window would be nice.

Last good nightly: 2012-08-04

Comment 4 :Benjamin Peterson 2012-08-10 08:49:00 PDT
It does seem to be using a .contains() method on String a few times. I don't know how worked originally. Browser detection gone wrong?
Comment 5 Leonard Camacho [:lcamacho] 2012-08-10 09:30:04 PDT
I just test Firefox 14 with the user agent of Nightly and the video works, is not the user agent.
Comment 6 Alice0775 White 2012-08-10 09:31:16 PDT
String.contains defines in

So , does MooTools conflict with Bug 772733?
Comment 7 :Benjamin Peterson 2012-08-10 09:40:13 PDT
It looks like MooTool's contains() is incompatible with ES6's.
Comment 8 :Benjamin Peterson 2012-08-10 10:14:15 PDT
MooTools' bug submitted:

Comment 10 :Benjamin Peterson 2012-08-27 13:55:20 PDT
I should note only Mootools 1.2 is afflicted. Mootools >= 1.3 is fine.

Well, Cnet changed their website. Now it seems to be fully compatible with Firefox 18. We'll see if it stays that way.

Alright. So that was a one time thing, and they are now back to the old layout. This means, of course, it no longer works. This is getting quite annoying.

I started tracking firefox-19, as the problem is still there.

Comment 18 :Benjamin Peterson 2012-10-10 10:38:40 PDT
Indeed, they're still using MooTools 1.2 AFAICT.
Comment 19 Alex Keybl [:akeybl] 2012-10-16 09:21:31 PDT
Is anybody still able to reproduce this? I can't in the latest 10/16 nightly using the URL in comment 0.
Comment 20 Josiah Bruner [:JosiahOne] (needinfo for responses) 2012-10-16 10:20:17 PDT
Videos do indeed work. However the slideshow is still broken. Since all slideshow related issues seem to be forwarding here, I don't think we can resolve the bug. Although, since the two issues seem to not be related anymore, perhaps we should close this one and open back up the others.
Comment 21 Josiah Bruner [:JosiahOne] (needinfo for responses) 2012-10-18 18:58:20 PDT
Alright. I believe this issue is resolved. I'm going to reopen my Slideshow issue though.

Not tracking it for release as the issue no longer happens based on comment 20
