Re: Firefox 44

It may be unrelated but I was reading this yesterday and to quote from it :
Quote
By late 2015, many browser vendors have either removed or announced timelines for the removal of standards based plug-in support, eliminating the ability to embed Flash, Silverlight, Java and other plug-in based technologies,

You may want to look at FF's change log to see if this is the case.

Re: Firefox 44

Can I suggest that you try installing WaterFox. I am using this on my Mac and it works for me.
https://www.waterfoxproject.org/
If, after you install, it still doesn't work can you provide some URLs for links that do not work please.

Re: Firefox 44

That's good news.  Wink
Best to check your audio settings then, it might be a configuration issue since the sound is evidently there, either that or you've got a dodgy headphone socket which isn't unlatching when you remove the jack.

HTML5 is a site coding language and wouldn't be on your PC at all

Re: Firefox 44

Mook , my sound card has separate headphone amp , so headphone & mic has separate plugs from speakers .
Maybe its the Dolby setting for speakers dont like utube , as Win 10 says Dolby settings are incompatible  Embarrassed

Re: Firefox 44

Well the easiest work around there is to connect your speakers to the headphone socket assuming they are compatible i.e. 3.5mm jacks. But I guess you'll have thought of that but there must be another work around any driver updates for your sound card chipset?
