I assume you mean Firefox 52.9 ESR.
Do YouTube and Facebook videos work, or is the problem just with Instagram?
If not, see here.

I'm not sure that the OP's problem is the same as that one which I originally reported though.
I wasn't seeing the Instagram videos at all, although still images were fine.
It turned out that the videos' containers were collapsed to a single line.
The OP seems to be saying that the containers are visible, but are just filled with black, which sounded more like not having html5/h264 video support in the browser.
In that case Facebook and YouTube videos shouldn't work either as I believe that the Flash fallback has now been removed.

You may be right; unlike @roytam1's browsers, stock FF 52 ESR requires something extra, like Adobe Primetime, to decode h.264 videos on XP.

But the OP said the problem was only in Instagram. If Facebook/YouTube are working it sounds like he's over the h.264 hurdle already.

So, IDK; we'll see what he says, I guess....
