Problems Viewing Videos

I had to stop using Firefox over a year ago because almost every time I'd come upon a video, the page went crazy--like it had 5 pages jumping on top of each other. I'd lose control of my mouse and couldn't close Firefox or access Task Manager. Basically, nothing worked. About 3 months ago I tried Firefox again and was so happy because I was able to use it again with no problems--UNTIL the past 2 Firefox updates. Now it's back to the same old problem and I'm back to using Chrome. Why is this happening and is there any solution?

Clear the Cache and remove the Cookies for websites that cause problems via the "3-bar" Firefox menu button (Settings). Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome. css is causing the problem.
