I was playing with this same problem just this morning. The fix I discovered is as follows. on any flash video playing or when you click on foxtab...right click to open global settings, then click on advanced tab, click on add trusted locations, click add folder, then add folder...home/usr then restart firefox. Mine is working fine now.

I also discovered that if these other fixes do not work, you can right click on the video and click on Global settings which will bring you to Adobe website.

On the Protected Content Playback Settings panel, click Reset license files as well as delete websites on the other tabs. Then restart Firefox. Now Foxtab has returned. I just applied this fix to another computer when all other fixes had failed.

the above procedure is correct, but you must specify the name of your computer like /home/"computer name"/.mozilla and not /home/user/.mozilla

I had the same kind of problem and was using SuperStart for a little while but I found the solution in a different way. I installed an Adobe Flash player preferences tab (install "adobe-flash-propertie-gdk". Then go to System>Preferences>Adobe Flash Player>Advanced>Trusted Location Settings>Choose folder.

From there I went to home/usr/.mozilla and it worked like a charm!

Good luck!
