    Question Fox news exclusive videos
    I've got a mid-2016 13" MBP that I use primarily as a desk top in clamshell mode. For a long time, when running High Sierra, the left side videos on the Fox News home page, would not load an play through Safari. Then, one day they would. Now, since moving to Mojave, they are off the grid again. No problems with Chrome or Firefox, just Safari. I figure it's a setting somewhere, but I can't find a solution. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Can you explain that a bit? Do you mean that the videos are off the screen (too far off to the side) or they are present by don't load when clicked on

    The videos are on the left side of the screen. If you click on one,, it should open in new window and play. Above the window reads, "Click anywhere outside window to close." At least his is how it works on Chrome and Firefox and used to work on Safari. Now, when I click, I get a white screen with a slightly different color white box where the video should be with the aforementioned notice about closing. But no video. As mentioned, for a long time it didn't work with High Sierra then it did. Now, with Mojave, it doesn't again. Got to be a setting somewhere, but I can't figure it out so far. Videos on other parts of the page work as they should.

    Latest update on problem. Click on video, opens in new screen, starts to load and crashes window with "Refresh browser" which has no effect. Click here for help--no effect. Error 4.

    I tried few videos on their site last night. So far, I can't duplicate either problem in Safari.

    Are you using any add ons or extensions with the browser giving you issue? Add blocker, or content blocker? Also, do you have Flash installed?

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    Update: Today, for reasons known only to God and Alexander Edison Marconi, the Fox videos were playing as they should on Safari. Go figure. Thanks for all the suggestions.
