Thanks, that seems to have fixed it.

I don't have set on my 
system but dom.ipc.plugins.enabled had been set to false, ISTR that I needed 
to do that some time ago to make youtube work. I've reset 
dom.ipc.plugins.enabled back to default true and streetview works OK now. 
Youtube still seems OK too.
