I have the same problem on Firefox with the sites using Flash Player, since I have updated Avast from V 2013.8.0.1504 to 2014.9.0.2011. All was Ok before.
I will try later (I am not at home) the WebShield.ini change from Alikhan/Zdenek

System : Win 7 home french, Firefox V 26, Flash Player V 11.9.900.170

what I am sure, is that I will wait before updating Avast (from V8 to V9) on my other PCs.

NB : What is strange is that the V8 version I had (V 2013.8.0.1504) is not refrenced in the "Avast Release History" (see www.avast.com/fr-fr/release-history?utm_source=prg_fav_80_0&utm_medium=prg_lnk&utm_campaign=free2paid&utm_content=prg_fav_fr-frupdate_info-link&p_var=.%2Ffa%2Ffr-fr%2Fupdate_info-link&p_elm=66&p_lex=198&p_lid=fr-fr&p_lng=fr&p_lqa=0&p_lqe=0&p_lst=0&p_lsu=24&p_pro=0&p_bld=empty&p_vep=8&p_ves=0&p_vbd=1489&p_hid=e161cef0-bed9-49c4-adf9-0a27f0819f10)

8.0.1504 was probably a beta which is why it's not listed under the releases.

But this version was installed by the Avast normal update process, and i though that this process only installs "steady" version, not beta version.
On a PC with Vista, and Avast free, french version 8.0.1489, the Avast update windows says that the last version available is 9.0.1504 (9, not 8), so not knowing the version that would be installed, I have kept this 8.0.1489 version.

More important, are the problems discussed in this post linked to the post "Fix for WebShield download issues" (hxxp://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=143211.75) where Lukas (avast! team Super Poster) gives some interesting information ?

While the solution posted earlier does seem to work, I can't understand why this problem still persists in the latest version of Avast (how many months has this been an issue now?).  For the record, I have this problem on all 3 of my computers using Firefox, IE, and Chrome.  No videos will play at brietbart.com or 49ers.com (the only 2 examples I'd found until reading this thread), unless you disable WebShield or perform the temporary fix in the WebShield.ini file mentioned earlier.

This has got to be frustrating a lot of users who aren't aware of what's causing this problem.  I've been dealing with it for months and finally went back to Avast 8 on one of my main PCs.
