I am running Firefox 16.0.2 on a Macbook Pro
In the last few days (approx since 23/10/12) I've been experiencing a lagging of HD Youtube videos streaming on my computer. The site loads fine as does the video's audio, they're both unaffected, but the 1080 option for the video is selected, the video plays extremely jerky and out of sync with the audio.
At first I thought it was my computer struggling to load the video, so I let the entire video load before continuing the stream, but this didn't solve the problem.
I've just updated all software, updated my Firefox, all the plugins are up to date. I've just disabled all the extensions I'm currently running, one by one to see if they were causing a problem, that didn't solve the problem.
I've tried loading the 1080 HD videos on another browser and they play fine, so I know the problem is with Firefox.
I've also tried following some of the troubleshooting tips on the Firefox website (help section), clearing recent history and clearing the cookies and cache didn't work, neither did disabling "hardware acceleration" in the advanced preferences (I've seen this recommended to a few users experiencing the same problems as me).
I'm all out of ideas. Please help! :(
