    I just recently switched to FF 2.0 for security reasons. It's a nice browser. More enjoyable than IE in my opinion.

    But I am having a few issues. I presently have FF with the following addons:

    1. No Script
    2. Adblock Plus
    3. Netcraft Toolbar
    4. Show IP
    5. Spoofstick

    I am having the following issues:

    1. When I go to You Tube or any site containing videos, I am unable to view them

    2. I also have trouble viewing pictures. Yahoo often has a series of pictures set up in a slide. I can only view the top one. When I hit the next button to see the next picture, nothing happens.

    3. I am subscribed to numerous threads her at Wilders. Sometimes I wish to unsubscribe. I am unable to unsubscribe by clicking the link provided in the email.

    Any ideas as to what could be causing these issues?

    spoofstick runs on 2.0.0.3?

    well first step with any issue is to
    verify your javascript permissions, on many sites you may have allowed a script that then tries to load another script (which you havent allowed yet) that incorporates the function you actually want :p

    as for You Tube sounds like a missing plugin, I use K-Lite Mega Codec Pack w\ Media Player Classic, that installs Quicktime & Real Alternatives plugins for Firefox

    but individual plugins are here
    https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/plugins/ & http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/windows.html


    another possibility is a HIPS thats blocking a part of an installation

    spoofstick does work in 2.0.0.3.
    I had to use mr tech local install extension to make spoofstick compatible though.

    Ejr, you may have to allow scripts with no script extension to make some sites work.

    Love Firefox and all the neat addons.

    I found an on-line fix for Spoofstick.

    Another forum regular implemented the fix and posted the file. It's a pretty easy fix.

    Search the forum to see it.

    Hello,
    When you visit YouTube, you need to allow or temporarily allow it.
    You need the flash player to see the movies.
