If he has flashplayer installed on his system and set
to "always ask
befor starting the plugin" the automatic or manual selection of html5
in FF will not work. If he wishes in this conditions to play html5 he
will have to go to "big mac menue" on the left side of the bar,
choose supplemental components, - plugins - set flash to "never
start" and reload the page. Now it should work as expected.
He (a.k.a. 'me') did indeed have flash set to 'always ask' so I tried
this suggestion and disabled it ('never start'). I restarted firefox
just in case that might matter. Still no joy.
Both with and without flash enabled the page chooses html5 by default
(or so the page says), and displays the static picture of a monarch
butterfly sitting on some mammal's nose or such, but clicking to play
just still overlays the picture with 'Sorry, you need Flash to play
More ideas please. Thanks.
FWIW, this is firefox 51.0.1 openSUSE version on 42.1.
