This problems happens randomly, initially only YouTube videos didn't play, the page opens but the spinning buffer symbol appears and the video doesn't load and play but at that time I could play Twitch and Coursera lectures. But since yesterday, when this problem occurs, videos don't play on any site, including Twitch, Coursera, etc, this problem is random, at other times I can play them without problem.

Since yesterday, is also not loading. This problem is not occurring on my phone. I use Firefox and I configured it to clear everything on exit.

Flashplayer issue in firefox?or codec issue maybe are all upto date mate and have you installed vlc player (helps with some codecs like matroska mkv files I believe). :) There was a flashplayer issue previously in fedora not sure if its relevant since a 64 bit issue I think but check it out, bon chance. I have to point out that security wise postinstallerf is not part of the distro through fedora but a separate entity and so if fastidious about system integrity it is not advised ,but saying that i use it so down to the individuals choice and at the close of business it does save typing when setting up,Is your connection good as well and are the times when you are having troubles during peak internet usage times. (:^D)

No, I don't think it's a flash player issue. My Firefox automatically uses HTML5.

Could my ISP be using protocol blocker?
