Why is it that Youtube videos using FF19 aren't automatically playing in html5 even though I already joined the opt-in HTML5 test of youtube? Please help.

I'm happy to help: just add &html5=1 at the end of the url and it plays webm/vp8 in ff...

... though as stated above flash/h264 is not only more efficient, but looks better at a lower bitrate even than the lowest compressed vp8/webm available - plus you have to use flash for videos with ads and other gimmicks. If you want h264 as html5, you have to use ie or safari: https://www.youtube.com/html5

Ah ok. Is there no automatic way of doing it though?

Okay, so when Waterfox was at version 14 through 16, I kept trying to replace my WF13 install with it but no matter what I did, keeping the profile meant the browser would glitch all over the place; eventually the browser simply wouldn't start anymore at all unless I started a fresh profile (instant crash, running with no add-ons at all changed nothing about it), the rant post about that is probably somewhere around, still.

Is there no way at all to get to transfer things over nicely to a new install of WF18 AND have it actually function properly afterwards? Passwords are easy and I don't do bookmarks, but I do not feel like losing browsing history (for the address bar autofill), profile-specific settings and other such things...

Anyone have experience with Mozilla FireFox Nightly? I keep having issues with the browser crashing. For example, this thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/412389/official-screenshot-of-your-games-thread/14480 Certain pages that I try to view will cause the browser to crash (the URL is a link to one such page). Is WaterFox more stable than Nightly?

EDIT: Just installed WaterFox and it still crashes... Also, it seems to just load up Nightly when I double-clicked on the WaterFox icon. Hmm.

Any ideas on this?

I had similar problems after I upgraded. I fixed them by uninstalling firefox and waterfox. I then downloaded & installed the latest versions of FF nightly 64 bit, and waterfox. All my preferences and plug-ins worked fine, and I have not had a problem since. Make sure you choose to keep your preferences if asked during the ff & wf removal process.

It seems there's no way around it. It's a requirement for IE 10 so if you want IE 10 you will need that update. See responses here. It seems people have reported it to Mozilla as well. Best thing to do is wait for Microsoft to deal with that update because it's uncertain if Mozilla will do anything about it.
