That doesn't seem related to the problem you quoted. The link you gave was to correct the icon used for HTML files when saved to one's computer. The problem you quoted was Windows associating Firefox with HTM/HTML files but not with HTTP/HTTPS links.

Youtube uses flash so make sure you update that every 2 weeks.

Flash doesn't have a 64-bit version so don't worry about version types.

mine is up to date, it works fine in full screen, just not minimized. All other browsers i have work fine either way, just waterfox doesnt allow me to play with the player controls, they barely come up when i hover over them with my mouse, so it takes a few seconds to get to fullscreen very frustrating

This probably won't won't help but try it any ways.

Go to the bottom of the page of Youtube while signed in. Click the Try Something New! link.

Make sure you are not opted into the HTML5 Video trial.

After that, you can try uninstalling Flash from Control Panel and then reinstalling it.


I have never had your problem, so their must be a solution to fix it.

I have had Flash videos crash but work after a simple refresh but never any control problems.
But Flash is definitely wonky on 64-bit browser. This is because they only offer 32-bit version because they don't think it would be important to offer a 64-bit version.
So we have to deal with problems it creates when used in a 64-bit browser because they don't test Flash in 64-bit browser.

Very annoying. I can't wait until 64-bit browsing becomes mainstream and forces all the lazy companies to come out with 64-bit versions.

Java and Silverlight (from Microsoft used for Netflix) both have 64-bit versions. But not the most popular internet plug-in of all time.

That's not correct. Flash is available in 32-bit and 64-bit installers, and has been for a long time now. The 64-bit one includes (and installs) both versions of the software. Now it might indeed be wonky, but it's not true to say they only offer the 32-bit version.

I can't seem to find a link to the 64-bit installer.

I can only download the x32 version (install_flashplayer11x32_mssd_aih.exe).

Flash's installer installs both 32-bit and 64-bit Flash if running on a 64-bit machine.

Yup. The only different installers present are for different browsers (IE and Firefox).

I would like to thank Alex for his effort in Waterfox, but this luck of communication is not nice. It only takes a few seconds to type a message in the forum and let people know about release date or no release at all. Even the last time, I have the feeling that WF18 was the result of several people asking about the delay and still missed some fundamental things like the wrong registry keys once more (introduced in WF16). Therefore, I switched to another x64 variant of FF and I am not looking back. The most important thing in business today, before anything else, is communication. You don't have that, you have nothing. Any project in a CV means nothing when you are not able to communicate with colleagues and clients. Thanks again and good luck.
