While this is supposedly fixed upstream a workaround might be useful. The
reason that youtube videos don't work is because youtube uses cookies in
some special way to determine which server to stream the video from (which
ever server you're nearest to, I suppose). What you need to do in Iceweasel
3.5.11 is: Edit > Preferences > Privacy > History Iceweasel will: "Use
custom settings for history" > Exceptions > enter "http://www.youtube.com" >
press block > close > close

That will block youtube cookies and youtube videos will now play.
