    Been having trouble with flash player in Firefox, in my dark
    background Windows color scheme. I do Windows backups, so my
    system is neat. But for some strange reason, flash player has been
    messing up in YouTube, for weeks or longer, through several
    installations and restorations (of various things).

    My latest attempt to solve the problem... Found a link to the
    instant installation page on Adobe's website, and made a shortcut
    to it. I grabbed the latest flash player uninstaller. Left open
    only one tab in Firefox, a text page, and closed Firefox. Ran the
    uninstaller. Opened Firefox and browsed to that Adobe flash player
    installation page, to install it. Might have closed Firefox.
    Browsed to YouTube, and BOOM everything is correct for a change.

    I think that about sums up everything I did. Something that looked
    troublesome (before) is the way Firefox handled the flash player
    update. I was getting two prompts (the information bar and
    another) to install flash player, and then somehow the video was
    played anyway, supposedly before flash player was installed. But
    the video windows looked very wrong, then and after I accepted the
    manual install.
