Had updates on Sparky and Firefox this pass week now can no longer view you tube videos. some have sound but no video and some have neither. So need to learn weather it was the Firefox or Sparky update that cause this. I have 3 different Sparky installs plus Zorin, Slax, and Rebellin. 2 of the Spark's I never update. will see if I can figure this out and will post back.

Just found out since I was last to you tube they have changed a lot of things, Firefox tube has working fine on Zorin. Just that you tube changed their format considerably since I was last here. I get a message that Firefox 52.5 not compatible with new you tube.

On sparky 4.5 FF works on you tube 4.7 does not work, on 5.3 it works. Having lots of fun with this and thanks for the link.

I found a plugin that was suppose to max FF faster. Does not seem to make FF any faster on this PC. Found some other browsers I have never heard of before think I will look at them today.

OK lynx (oldest browser still in use ) text based, epic (mac only) falkon (was quazilla), icscat (that turned out to be a misspelling of ice-cat. I thought that icscat would be just right for cruising the Internet.

Using pale moon is there simple add on to down load html5 videos? I have found a you tube video of a 9 year old dutch girl singing Opera I would like to save it in my video file.
