CNN Videos and Firefox

For some reason, CNN videos do not play in Firefox 3.0. Ive done some search over this, but couldn't find the reason for this behaviour. However, it seems that clearing your Firefox cache makes things work!

Here's how
In Firefox, got to Tools/Clear Private Data
alternatively, if you want to control what is being cleared (i.e. clearing only the cache not the saved passwords etc..)
Tools/Options/Privacy and make sure you select "Aske me before clearing private data"
With this option enabled, every time you clear private data, you will get a popup window asking you what you want to clear.

  1. Well thanks for the tip, I like your blog you always have nice stuff.

  2. This is interesting because I got the same issue, I'd like to know what happened with those videos, I really wanted to watch them, maybe you could give us the solution.
