NOW what?! Brand new Facebook video issue with Opera Browser

  • So I took a nap this afternoon and everything was fine. When I woke up and went on Facebook, video controls are no longer displaying (pause, stop, start, volume, etc.). The videos play with no way to stop them without exiting. I tried Firefox and the videos are normal there so it's definitely an Opera issue, not a PC or Facebook issue. Any ideas?

  • SOLVED!

    After tweaking various things I figured out that the problem is the Adblock Plus add-on. I'm still not sure if the change was made by Adblock, Facebook or Opera, but in any case when I disabled Adblock Plus and refreshed, the video controls were back. Just to make sure I enabled it and refreshed again, yup, video controls were gone. I tried some other Facebook videos and it was the same thing. I reported it to Adblock Plus, and will just leave the add-on disabled on FB until they get this glitch fixed.

  • It's working fine here.
