youtube crashes - Mac

Posted

hi, Youtube has been crashing for the last couple of months. I have an iMac, and none of the solutions posted, do help me solve this. it is very annoying. I have been using some other browsers, but I want to keep using Firefox, which has been my choice since 2006.

When I enter youtube.com in the bar, it starts to upload for about 1 or 2 sec, I can see the content uploading, and then I get the crash message: Gah. Your tab just crashed. We can help you! Choose Restore This Tab to reload page content.

Well, this is not helpful at all. Reloading to crash again. I have just updated the latest version of flash, but nothing. Running on Mac OS High Sierra - version 10.13.3 Hope someone can help, thanks JM
