I started my computer this morning and everything seemed normal, yet once I got on youtube, every video i tried to watch wouldn't play properly, even though yesterday things were fine, and I've never encountered this problem before.. I hadn't updated, installed or otherwise changed anything between the two days and everything else works just fine.. Whenever i start a video the sound chops up and skips/lags like it can't keep up.. It's hard to describe.. Kinda like if one listens to a CD with lots of scratches... I initially assumed that it was a Flash Player issue.. But after updating both Flash Player and Firefox to the latest versions the problem still persists.. I now assume it is a Firefox issue, as I have tried viewing the videos in other browsers, and they play just fine.. I have no idea what is causing it.. And I would appreciate any help or solutions you could give me.. I'm also not that big of a computer expert, so please forgive me for anything seemingly obvious I might have overlooked.. Thanks in advance..

Mac OS 10.6.8, Firefox 16.0.1, PDF Viewer 0.6.39 installed. In Firefox>Preferences>Applications, PDFs are supposed to be handled by the PDF Browser 2.4.4 plug-in for Preview. However, when I try to view a PDF in Firefox, I get this:

"We are sorry, but Adobe Reader is unable to show documents in this browser configuration.

"Please use your browser to download this file and open it in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.

"To avoid this message in the future, many browsers provide a way to turn off certain add-ons, and some are able to show this document natively. Please contact your browser vendor for more details."

Why is Adobe Reader trying to open the PDF when Preview is the default? How do I disable Adobe Reader from doing anything in Firefox?

Ok, here's the deal.

After long use Firefox starts to lag like crazy with Flash. And... It doesn't seem to be a problem with Flash. It's more likely that the browser itself what is causing the issue.

After I use Firefox for some time Flash starts lagging badly. BUT! This happens only if I have my Firefox window active. If I open the Task Manager on top of Firefox window, Flash stops lagging as if Harry Porter himself cast a spell with his magic stick making everything work like a charm.

I made a small video showcasing the bug: https://www.dropbox.com/s/l2c5pbn1xwy58dc/12-11-2012%2019-07-15.avi

- The bug still appears even in Safe Mode (all addons disabled).

- With hardware acceleration disabled in Flash bug still remains.

- With Chrome and other browsers everything works fine.

- The bug will go away after restart - and then will start to appear after Firefox is in use for some time.

- Normally it re-appears after I close my laptop's lid forcing it to go to sleep mode. After it wakes up - the bug is there.

- There was no such a bug in the past - it started to appear as new Firefox versions were released - don't know the exact version but I assume it all started from version 14 or 15.

Any thoughts?

Hi

Some of YouTube videos (not all of them) are not working for me. the videos isn't running, its just a blank box.

I have Firefox 16.0.2 I also have Flash 11.4 (was 11.3 and both didn't work out well) I also downgrade to 10.2 and it did not help ether. I also run Firefox on the Safe mode with all Addons/Extensions Disabled and that did not help too. I also installed the latest Realplayer. I tried disable/enable Hardware Accelerator.

each time I try a solution I hit the Ctrl+F5.

my current theme is Default.

I just tried to Reset Firefox to its factory settings , and that did NOT solve the problem.

All of the videos that are not working on Firefox are working on IE9 on the same PC at the same time without problems.
