How do I stop YouTube videos from stopping after 14 seconds?

For a couple of days now I've found that some, but not all, Youtube videos stop at the 14 second mark. I've also noticed that the buffering bar also stops there. I have already tried deleting my history, cache and cookies. I've also uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe Flash. I've also tried turning off the computer and unplugging the modem for 30 seconds before rebooting. None of those things worked. I have TubeEnhancer. Is that causing this to happen? I have the latest versions of Adobe Flash and Foxfire.

Try disabling that extension, as the reviews look like it could be faulty: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/youtube-enhancer-plus/

You can do that on the Add-ons page. Either:

  • Ctrl+Shift+a
  • "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons

In the left column, click Extensions.

Often a link will appear above at least one disabled extension to restart Firefox. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links as the last step.


Looking at your list of disabled extensions, I think you might have installed a bundle of unwanted software. To clean those out, I suggest a visit to the Windows Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. If you click the "Installed on" column heading and view the list grouped by date, that may help in uncovering bundle items that you never intended to install. Take out as much trash as possible here.

The solution that worked for me is in a prior thread here:
