Hey, I kind of need some help. I just went on YouTube recently, and there was a message on every video I went to saying "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash Player." and gave me a link. I went to said link and tried to download the Flash Player but afterwards, going back on YouTube, the message stayed the same. I went on the support links there but nothing helped me. I thought having the original version was the problem so I put that in my recycling bin. But the message stayed the same. I tried some things it said on the support links (like restarting, or uninstalling and then reinstalling, etc.) but nothing seems to be working. Please help. Thanks in advance!

(I also noticed that it works on IE, but not on Firefox.)

Well, this might be simple (if I am right).

The link you followed was for IE. Try this one.

http://www.adobe.com...=ShockwaveFlash

Its for Firefox =)

Hi Anvo,

Try this link to verify your Flashplayer.

Go HERE to get the latest Flashplayer 9.0.115.0

You could also download and install udc.exe to keep all your software up to date if you run this freestanding .exe weekly.

kind regards,

The installation for Firefox didn't work and I have two of those icons on my desktop now (I think I used it before and got no results).

Also, when I went to tallin's site, Firefox said that I had to install missing plugins and so I did and I got to see the animation. Still, I double-checked on YouTube and the same message pops up that I have to update to the newest version. :/

Sigh, you can never make it easy can you? Haha I'm kidding. =)

Alright, follow these steps carefully.

Alright, first open a tab to YouTube.

Now, goto the Tools drop down menu.

Click on Error Console. And you will see these signs:

[Mug] [X] [/!\] [Bubble] (X)

Alright, assuming you understood that, click the last button, which should clear the data.

Now, click on any video on YouTube (Try not to travel to find it, click one from the main page).

Then, please post anything that is added to the Error Console, and I'll try my best to help.
