    Are you running any script or ad blocking extensions?

    Most of these embedded videos are cross-site scripted (XSS); and are blocked by extensions like No-Script, etc.

    I'm using Adblock. But, I don't know how to turn it off to test if that's the problem.

    Tools | Add-ons | find Adblock in the Extensions list and then select the disable button - then restart Firefox

    You can get rid of Adblock (ie. Uninstall it); and instead install:

    No Script

    It does the ad blocking + it also protects you from many more things too (ie. XSS exploits, ) + gives you per-page/domain control as to what to allow & when.

    Disabling Adblock did the trick. Thanks!

    well, if adblock is the problem for you in this case, you can put cnn to your whitelist, so adblock will be automatically disabled when visit cnn. Right click adblock button and choose "disable on xxxxxxx"

    Also, you might want to update your quicktime since its the prime target in several recent security fixes.

    > Right click adblock button and choose "disable on xxxxxxx"

    At what point do I do this? I can't seem to find the option to "disable on xxxxxxx". I tried putting the cursor on an ad and right clicking, but don't get that option.

    its on the status bar, or toolbar, if you didn't remove it. if you did, you can goto addon window, click adblock plus' preference, and from menu bar, tool-> show in status bar.
