    Hi, thanks for furnishing your information. Be sure you are using your 32bit browser. There are a few new features in IE9 and one of them is the ActiveX Filtering. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/products/ie-9/fea tures

     

    See if this is the problem:

     

    To turn on ActiveX Filtering
    In Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, point to Safety, and then click ActiveX Filtering.

     

    To turn off ActiveX Filtering on a specific website
    In Internet Explorer, click the Filter button in the Address bar, and then click Turn off ActiveX Filtering.

     

    To turn off ActiveX Filtering on all websites
    In Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, point to Safety, and then click ActiveX Filtering.

     

    Let me know if that takes care of it.

     

     

    Thanks,

    Could you take a screenshot of the browser window and post it so we can see what's going on?  It's odd that it's working on YouTube but failing on Facebook.

     

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Hi, thanks for the feedback. It could have been the video itself, hard to tell. I know IE9 has the compatibility view that may help also. You may want to review that if you have any other issues with a website with IE9.

     

    I see Chris has posted a thread about the ActiveX Filtering with screenshots that is helpful, should you want to bookmark it.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Thanks,
