Problem with Youtube Videos


I am using Firefox 3.6.14 EN and i am having trouble with youtube videos. As youtube buffers a video the greay timeline bar goes light red but on Firefox it is always like that. Whenever i pause the video for more than 5 minutes the moment i press play it starts from the beggining again. I cant fast forward the vid either because it starts biffering again but when i leave it it plays fine, anyone know wahts wrong?

I also had this problem with the previous version ever since i reinstalled everything on my hard drive like it was new. I have none of these problems when i use the IE tab add on, Use IE or GoogleChrome.

Try updating your video drivers first of all. Firefox and the latest version of Flash seem to put more demands on video drivers than IE, Opera or Chrome do.
