Why firefoxs stops at You Tube? Am working with Windows 10.

Posted

Whenever playing YT after a while Firefoxs starts becoming choppy or suddenly there is no sound any longer. Than the video stops and nothing works unless I restart my laptop.

Hi

I have had a look into this and have a couple of solutions for you.

If you mainly look at YouTube videos when you are online, you may not need the Flash plugin that you have installed. Firefox has the built in ability to play YouTube videos without Flash. You can read how to uninstall Flash here.

If you need Flash for other sites, I recommend having a read of this guide that will walk you through how to fix common Flash issues.

I hope this helps, but if not, please come back here and we can look into a different solution for you.
