    I just installed Defensewall and it is blocking Flash Player in Firefox. IE8 is working fine.

    When I go to YouTube with Firefox, I get this message "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player." If I run Firefox as trusted, it works fine.

    I searched but couldn't find an answer to this problem.

    Maybe there is a conflict with something else I'm running.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks. I'm not running any script blockers.

    Even though I just downloaded Defensewall it is version 2.56
    How can I get 3.0.14?

    You run firefox as trusted (right-click and run as trusted), then installed or updated adobe flash? Might be requiring an update (so when the installer downloads, run it as trusted as well)

    Then run firefox as untrusted again and see if it works.

    Right. I did that and Firefox works fine when I run it trusted, but not untrusted.

    the easy way and less trouble is to disable the program and do the xx what ever program update and then enable again;) my point of view:D

    Have you checked in FF > tools > options > content to check for sure that you have Java Script allowed?
    I always have to allow Java Script even though I have the latest version of Flash.

    I need to see DW's logs on this error. Post them at the official support forum or mail to the support address.

    Thanks. Log file sent.

    It turns out the log file wasn't useful for debugging this problem.
