    Hey guys . . . i've been trying to get on youtube for days on both firefox and safari and it seems as though my javascript is turned off or something. When I go to check the settings in my browsers it says its on but youtubes site won't even load for me not just the videos but the whole site. And then when I go to other sites with videos that would pop up they don't show up??? So i don't know what the problem is but if someone can help me i'd really appreciate that . . . thanks

    Have you checked that your Flash plugin is active? Tools > Add-ons > Plugins > Shockwave Flash item.

    Also try opening Firefox in safe-mode to see if that makes a difference.

    The option for JavaScript is in Safari's Security preferences. There are checkmarks there for Enable Plug-ins, Enable Java, Enable JavaScript, and Block pop-up Windows.

    Oh, I didn't see that...

    What version of the OS and the browsers do you have installed?

    You can try doing a DNS cache flush, or reboot your home router (unplug wait a minute, plug back in).

    It should have anything to do with js or your flash plugin. It's gotta be the your ISP by the sounds of this.
