I have been using Firefox for some time now. But in the past week some very obvious changes have occured. I can no longer open YouTube links with Mozilla Firefox. A little box keeps coming up, saying:

“Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe’s Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player.”

So - I click the box to download the “NEW” version of Adobe’s Flash player - and get nothing.

Yesterday I sent to the trash, 20 icons from my start up page that were for installing “Adobe Flash Player”.

Something is very wrong and I don’t know what it is..........

So, I am forced to go back to IE.

Did you just upgrade to 3.0? IF so, you'll have to install the plug-ins for that version.

If you're still running 2.x, did you turn JavaScript off? Are you running "NoScript" (highly recommended)? Flash is Initiated through JS scripts, and if JS is turned off, you'll be prompted to download Flash even though it's installed on your system. Turn on (enable) JS, or if running NoScript, make sure you've allowed JS for that site.
