Thank you for your HLUG straightforward "A&E" response. Infact this problem I reported to HLUG is not what it appears. I snce checked with BT, (my broadband 
supplier) today. BT identified the problem- I have had very slow Broadband at about one tenth of the normal expected speed since I was connected in early 
November, 2014. Under their terms I will be able to get this rectified as I have reported this within three months. BT will give me another call on Monday and 
hopefully their engineer will visit me as it is a BT problem.

Thank you again for HLUG's members' advice. As suggested I have now changed to the Chromium web browser on Ubuntu and this has restored another glicth I 
had with Firefox i.e. I would click on the final weblink eg the "booking" of tickets or something just as important and nothing would happen - i think this may be a bug 
caused when i opened a suspect email web link. That is a bonus!

It looks as if Adobe no longer supports linux and recent versions of Flash
will not work in Firefox running on linux. The preferred solution appears
to be to install the the Google Chrome browser from the built-in Ubuntu

On a computer firefox which wouldn't play YouTube I installed another browser - chrome or opera - and it worked. Still don't know why it didn't in Firefox. ! Don't 
care ! Time too precious !
