Firefox freezes when watching videos on youtube.com

Posted

I have Firefox version 3.6.4. When I am watching youtube videos, Firefox freezes, and I can only close the browser by using the task manager. I have not noticed this happen when I am viewing videos on other websites. Also, this does not happen when I watch youtube videos in Internet Explorer. This problem just recently started occurring.
