For the past week everything I try to do on YouTube with Firefox has been extremely slow, sometimes near that of a dial-up connection. I've tried using all three browsers--IE8, Firefox, and Chrome--and the problem appears to be ONLY with Firefox. In fact, with Firefox over 90% of YouTube features will not work at all, including playback on "My Channel".
All three browsers function perfectly at all other web sites.
My videos are being inundated with SPAM promoting several different illegal download sites, yet when I try to report these as SPAM I repeatedly get a "500 Internal Server Error" with all three browsers. Please keep in mind that these messages are sent to me by YouTube, NOT the spammers. The only browser that will actually allow me to delete the message itself from the video is Chrome...both IE8 and Firefox are totally unresponsive to all options.
I have updated McAfee and run a deep, full-system scan. I've swept my registry with three different cleaners, and Secunia PSI shows no problems.
This is the second time in the past two months that YouTube has shut out Firefox almost totally.
What is going on?
