Despite a mozilla-flash update this AM, firefox is still DIW, will not 
play a video, not even the commercial in front of it. Using chromium for 
my default browser now.

Do I detect an effort to kill mozilla/firefox?  It has not worked for any 
videos but you-tubes in 6 months. And for the last several weeks, not 
even there, as the debian version has no html5 support according the 
window the video is supposed to play in.
