    Have you made sure to disable the NoScript plugin in firefox, or better yet just allowed youtube in it. You will need to allow both youtube.com and ytimg.com since youtube split their content over these two domains.

    There really should be no need to upgrade anything as I just checked to make sure and can view youtube videos just fine in firefox.

    To find the firefox directory, or any other file, use the command locate, followed by the file you wish to find. In this case locate firefox should return, among other, the following path: /usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.10
