    Yahoo music works fine, but the linked page says un-available or doesn't exist.

    I face the same problem in this page (yahoo tw): http://goo.gl/I2r5aTb
    However, this yahoo video link from Canada works for me:
    https://ca.celebrity.yahoo.com/blogs...231414092.html
    More strangely, orther yahoo videos from yahoo Canada website doesn't work for me...after playing the robin williams one, I can not play other videos, including the original robin williams one.
    If I reload the page, the original robin williams one can be played again, and still I can not play other videos after that....
    I use ubuntu 14.04 LST Trusty and Firefox 31.0
