I went to codec site and tried to download the software Mozilla firewall wouldn't let it download and instead it produced tab after tab on my computer and i couldn't stop it and had to shut down.

Hello in order to view this type of video you will need to install codec on your machine!

Download Klite Codec Pack here: https://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_codec_pack.htm
I tried that but my mozilla firewall blocks it ....the firewall just keeps running and creating tabs upon tabs????

Hi it sounds as though you have 2 separate problems there.

1. The Mozilla web-browser should not be opening multiple tabs like that, please report it as a bug so the devs can fix it (see below)
2. You should be able to get codecs through your package manager, there's no need to download random stuff from websites you've never heard of before.

Note that the K-Lite Codec Pack works only on Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista.

It would help if you could post these questions in a dedicated linux support forum
http://www.linuxquestions.org
as it deals with a huge range of different versions of linux but is dedicated to linux support.

It might be worth popping along to
https://distrowatch.com/
to see if you recognise which of those versions of linux you are using. If you see your version listed down on the right-hand side then click on it and navigate to the "User Forums" for your version of linux. They should be able to give much better help in there.

This link might help. Even though it's specifically aimed at Ubuntu most versions of linux work in very much the same way although your package manager might be called something different
