[Gnash-dev] After upgrading to Firefox 24, YouTube videos never load

[I asked this question at Mozilla's site, but the only response so far is to get the latest Flash version - which is not exactly what anyone here wants to hear...]

I have Lubuntu 12.04 and Gnash. Up until yesterday (when Upgrade Manager uploaded the latest Firefox to version 24) all was well. NOW, the page loads, I click on the large "Play" symbol superimposed over the video image, and all I get thereafter is the circling dots loading symbol. Gnash gets far enough that it creates the "videoplayback__" file for the video, but it is typically only a few kb large (and it cannot be played, naturally).
Is this happening to anyone else?
Should I (can I?) downgrade to Firefox 23?
Ideas, anyone?
