I haven't run across this in a while but I've had some Flash Videos that wouldn't play in Firefox but will in Chrome. I found it's because Firefox can't display videos that use "imbed" rather than "frame". I'm not sure how to explain it explicitly but that's the gist of it. Now since I've found out about the ability to block ads with the hosts file, besides malware sites, I might give Chrome another try. Since Mozilla is making Firefox resemble Chrome so much getting used to it might be pretty easy.
