Youtube videos keep crashing firefox
Firefox started crashing this afternoon whenever I try to watch a video on youtube. As soon as the video starts to load, firefox crashes. This just started today. I was able to watch youtube videos earlier today.
Here are the crash reports: bp-6eadd5e5-6ac4-48b1-bfc4-f0e2b2160423 bp-60e48ed9-908d-413f-90ac-9e6a02160423 bp-1ddc707f-6116-4972-b987-ddcc72160423 bp-c7018ee5-c4c4-4902-87e9-acda92160423 bp-8f335b9c-42cb-4db1-a7b0-2d5582160423

That sounds like a problem with the HTML5 media player.
Does this only happen on YouTube?
Scroll down the page to see some media players that you can test.

I tested those media players there and there wasn't any problems with them on that site. I'm still having firefox to crash whenever I try to play a youtuve video.
So far, it only happens on youtube.
If it is the HTML media player, how do you fix it?
I refreshed firefox but that did not help. Every time I try to watch a video on youtube, as soon as it starts playing, firefox crashes. I did find the Youtube Flash Video Player add-on for firefox and I installed it and set the setting for flash video player. So far that has stopped firefox from crashing when watching a video on youtube. Is there another way to resolve the issue without having to use this add-on?
The problem is not just related to youtube videos. I just tried to watch a video on netflix and it cause firefox to crash.
