Hey guys,
i am a longtime user of the brilliant Mozilla FireFox. but latley it has been letting me down.
i have 2 questions kind of.

1: Flash/activeX i believe are not working or not working properley, when i want to watch a web based video for example SOME videos on www.tvshack.net wont work and say that i should turn javascript on in my browser (it is on) and i should get the latest flash (i downloaded flash player 10). on the other hand youtube plays videos fine?? so i really dont know whats going on.

2: Some buttons on my facebook page arnt working in mozilla for example the comment button, the share button, chat, like etc (Links work) also when i get a notification i will see what it is but when i close the box thing the notification i just read is still 'un-read' so it stays highlighted and has the little number. And as much as i hated do it i tried facebook on Internet explorer and it seemed to work alright. Question is this somthing to do with my computer or are other facebook users having the same problem (i.e is it a problem with facebook and facebook will probley fix it?) is this a flash/activeX problem

Please help me?

Hi Aussietim,
A great big huge "thankyou" to you for posting your solution. I have been having trouble accessing webs.com for months now and no one has been able to help me work out what is going on.
I just tried the "private browsing" in firefox and now I finally have access to this site!!!! (and in ie8 too).

I am sooooo happy!! This site has our business site on it so it is a great relief not to have to go elsewhere!!

Thanks again!! :) :) :)
