Has anyone been having problems trying to watch video on MSNBC.com? It used to work fine but, in the last few days, I am unable to watch video.

When I click on a video link, I get a screen saying:

The MSN Video player may be blocked by pop-up blocking software. Click here if it was blocked.

Firebird doesn't indicate any popup was blocked. I have ( as I always have) msnbc.com in my list of sites allowed popups. It used to work fine. Now, it doesn't?

Anyone else??

Yeah...I can confirm the same problem---not only with Firebird, but also with the Opera browser. I'm assuming that this is some exclusively written page(s) now for IE only.

Maybe, some HTML coding expert can come along and confirm this.

two words (well 3 technically).

Damned JScript (no, not javascript, microsoft's craptastic JScript).

I've been having the same problem recently, even with Internet Explorer. Signing into .NET Passport solves the problem in IE but not Firebird or Opera.

I'm having the same problem with Safari 11 and Chrome. Is this a Trump plot?

Locking this due to the age of the original post (14 years!) and the fact that this is not exclusively a Firefox issue.
