Youtube video freezing almost all the time.

Not sure when it started but nearly every attempt to play Youtube videos results in the video freezing after about 1/2 second while audio continues, then the video jumps forward randomly before freezing again. Have reloaded, restarted, cleared history, cookies, etc, and nothing helps. Mean time Chrome plays the videos flawlessly. This is a recent problem with FF and needs fixing badly as it will just not go away.

Thanks. Used that and solved problem. Video acceleration was the problem. Turned that off and have played several videos with no problem.
