  1. I found it. I recently changed my default search engine to DuckDuckGo which installed an extension, disabling that allows the videos to play. I only wanted the search engine, not the extension. Removing it allows the videos to play with MalwareBytes active and my other ad blockers for that matter. Sorry for the mess. But glad I found the issue and could fix it! Thanks for all your help! :^) gene
  2. Well, I've tried disabling both Malwarebytes and Ghostery on FireFox and Vivaldi, a Chromium based browser, both of which showed those videos prior to installing Malwarebytes browser guard. I couldn't see them in Chrome either - though I rarely use that browser, I did try to see what the situation was there. It is only Huffington. Which I also whitelisted on AdBlock Plus just to be thorough. I don't much care, the rest of the page is fine, the videos I often pause immediately anyway and don't always bother watching. They just used to start immediately and no longer do anything but flash and then go black. It's annoying but it's not FireFox, in fact, Vivaldi has been my default browser for the past few months. I'd sooner give up the videos than the protection...
  3. I did that, actually I run CCleaner Pro as well and regularly clearly caches, but I did that from within the browser. I don't use a HOSTS file, I did years ago, but no longer. I think it is the Huffington site as it isolated to that, so it's their problem, not mine nor Vivaldi's. Thanks! :^)
  4. I disabled it. Also disabled Ghostery and Adblock Plus. No change. This only started happening with the last update, maybe that has something to do with it, but I'm beginning to doubt that as nothing I try from your suggestions works in Firefox either. Maybe it is Huffington that has the problem. Thanks for the assists. I'll keep looking around. :^)
  5. I tried that in several iterations. I didn't like the idea of allowing malware, so I tried it without that, didn't work. So then I decided okay, for this test, I'll just allow everything. Also didn't work. Same thing happens, the first frame flashes then the video box goes black, if I reload the page, it is the same. It is also the same if I use the EXACT link url, or just HuffingtonPost.com in the url box.
  6. I'm having the same trouble in both FireFox and Vivadi (a chromium based browser) something is blocking videos that used to play just fine. I suspect this extension since things worked fine before it. It doesn't block ALL videos, those from the Washington Post play just fine. These play automatically when I select a link from my newsletter. I've also noticed I can't stay signed into Disqus which some sites use. I can login but the first click and the login is gone. They seem related somehow given both began after installing the extension.

I've tried toggling off everything, tried pausing other security extension, reloading the page, nothing helps. This only started after adding this extension. I'd like to know if there's a workaround or I just need to remove the extension. I've other security software, Malwarebytes Premium running anyway, and that didn't interfere in this way with anything. I'm open to suggestions but would like to fix this. Thanks for any ideas. :^)
  7. I should have added, but can't edit my post. That turning off everything does nothing. Reloading the page, does nothing, the video flashes then goes black. I'll be removing it from my browsers if there's no workaround.
