Firefox/flash/CNN Issue In CentOS-7

Hi all!

I have 3 up to date C7 systems.

One of them has flash installed, the other two do not.

One of the two without flash displays CNN videos fine. I’m not sure whether it is using html5/canvas, or some other mechanism.

the other system without flash fails to display them because flash is missing.

So far I have not been able to figure out what is different in the two systems’ firefox configuration. All 3 systems use the firefox version that ships with CentOS-7 (i.e., the one that yum update provides).

I’ve compared the addons and plugins and can’t see anything different there that I’d expect to be related to this issue.

can anyone here suggest further ideas?
