Firefox Suddenly Screwing Up?

I've suddenly found that my Firefox browsers no longer works with YouTube, Facebook, etc. in the past few days. Is there something going on that I don't know about?

Hey pal..
What happens when you try to open these sites?? Is there a specific error message??? Or may be some plug-ins missing?? Sometimes some malwares also restricts access to specific sites.. You can install malwarebytes and run a scan. See if that helps...

In the video display window right click, select Settings, then remove the tick for "Enable hardware acceleration". Reload the page and see if that helps.

If not, reinstall Flash. I would use Adobe's own Flash Uninstaller from their web site first, then reboot the computer, then revisit Adobe to get the latest version of Flash.
