Short note

This morning, at about 1 a.m., Firefox is displaying errors in the YouTube embeded code. Safari and Chrome work fine. All you IE folks are on your own as usual. Thought I’d relate my experience before bedtime.


The embed problem has been resolved, thanks to reader Skip who did some experimenting with the embed code. The problem was in the “nocookie” feature provided by YouTube. I had been using that feature for a long time, and then Firefox got upgraded to v.36 on my computer and the problem soon began.

All of today’s posts do not have the “nocookie” in the embed code. Personally, I don’t know what the ramifications of that are. But if you clear your cookies when you shut down your browser, all should be well.

Unless the YouTube coders are scewing with us again.

I can’t pinpoint any one significant culprit in this anomaly, but I’m glad to the site is back on two feet again.

Thanks, Skip.

(And just now, at 12:41 a.m., I got a notification theat Firefox v.36.1 is available for download. More in the Frankly post on Saturday.)

    No thanks necessary, this is my go-to after a long day of paying the man. No SPT is like being stranded at a bar that only serves two types of beer… bad, and worse. Thanks for keeping the site plugging along!
