I'm pretty sure the video embedding doesn't need Java to work on Firefox -- just Flash.

You probably neglected to download an update for Adobe Flash, which allows videos from YouTube to run.

Henning is on the right track. Java has nothing to do really with embedded videos from YT, it's Flash that takes care of that.

I use Firefox...almost religiously...and have never had this problem you're having.

Maybe you should try clearing your cache and cookies; that's all that is coming to mind that may solve your problem.

Flash is one of those programs that when it becomes outdated it becomes a security issue, so a lot of sites disable older versions of flash. Just check Adobe's site for updates. If that doesn't yield results, try

And if that doesn't work, perhaps just reinstall Firefox. Though I've personally never had to do that.

Maybe downloading the latest version of Firefox can also solve this problem. Mozilla will often show you a pop-up telling to download the latest version of the browser.

Firefox does that too from time to time, on its own accord. (Where "older" sometimes means "yesterday and before").

I think they do it whenever Flash is updated purely for security purposes, though I'm not entirely sure.

I've decided to go with Yandex, and it's been good to me thus far. Pretty underrated, but great.
