As the title says. I’ve been having problems with YouTube and that small embedded BBC “click to play” Player all day. Not under IE or Chrome mind – just under Firefox 3. I’ve been struggling with all sorts of possible solutions – including diving head first into that awfully dark well that is the Windows Registry.
Before you do – DON’T!
No need to reinstall Flash. No need to update Firefox. No need to install Vista Service Pack 1. Just go to Firefox | Tools | Add-ons | Plugins | Shockwave Flash and press the Disable button. Then when it toggles to Enable, press the Enable button.
The sound on streaming video sites should now work.
This is the page I got the tip from, after much searching and hair-pulling (not much left to pull anyway):
Hey Guys! I just wanted to throw something out there that if you do get no sound, this is what I tried. All I did was go into the Tools Window at the top and went to addons. I then went to plugins and disabled then enabled it and it fixed the sound. Try that if you get no sound from Firefox 3

I also wanted to add that the plugin was the Shockwave Flash. Sorry about that
