Please update Silverlight:

As for youtube, are both of the webgl drivers up to date?

If you toggle hardware acceleration are there any changes: about:preferences#advanced > General, under "Browsing" check and uncheck the 3rd checkbox.

Hi gman620, since you run Windows XP and this problem started for you in Firefox 40, there is another potential explanation for your issue here:

This is why it's usually best to start a new thread and let ones related to older versions of Firefox rest.
