you tube & media player

I also suggest getting the add-on, " Ad Block Plus " as it stops almost all the ads on you tube and really speeds things up and that makes for a nice experience.

the only thing I have found and forgot to ask is that when I downloaded firefox it never asked me if i wanted to keep the IE-11 browser. I don't think i missed it so i have some more learning to do about that

steveo, I realize that you originated this Topic more than a year ago and that you used a "work-a-round" to solve your problem which consisted of downloading the Firefox browser.  I am making my post because today I experienced the same issue that you originally posted about ....videos on YouTube would not display; I had audio, but no picture, just a solid green background on the YouTube player.  The fix for this problem on Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 11 follows:    Go to "Internet Options" > "Advanced Tab" > Accelerated graphics > place a check next to "Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering"  > apply > OK > shut down and then restart your computer.  This fix worked perfectly; videos on YouTube are once again being displayed in the normal fashion as they had been prior to the problem.  If any other folks still using Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 11 experience this issue, the fix indicated here should work.
