Why does watching YouTube videos in Firefox cause my video driver to crash, but I can watch the same video in IE8 without a problem?
For the past few days, I suddenly can't watch any YouTube videos in Firefox without having the video driver crash every few seconds. The screen freezes too, and I have a hard time getting my cursor to the "X" to close the tab. One time it was so bad my computer crashed and rebooted.
I am able to watch the same videos in Internet Explorer 8 without any problems. I am also able, as far as I know, to watch videos in Firefox on other sites like CNN.com without any problems.
My computer information below looks correct. It's a Gateway Model#MX6453, my video driver is an ATI Radeon Xpress 1150.

I am having the exact same problem on a Gateway MT6460 and the same vid driver as well as situation with non youtube videos. All other embedded sites work.
I fixed this by disabling hardware acceleration. YouTube videos seem to work fine now.
This link was provided in an other YouTube problem: Flash "Display settings" window: http://www.macromedia.com/support/doc.../help01.html
I had to go to a site other than YouTube that had flash content (like a video on CNN.com), right-clicked on the flash video, selected "Settings" on the menu, then unchecked "Enable hardware acceleration" on the display tab. For good measure I closed Firefox and opened it again. Since then no more driver errors. (crosses fingers)
That worked perfectly! Thank you so much for your help you have no idea how much I appreciate it. Well, you probably have some idea but it works fantastically now.
You should also make sure that you have updated the graphics display diver to the latest version.
