Is this problem with the Flash player plugin or with the built-in HTML5 video player? Usually you can tell which one is being used from the last item on the context menu (right-click or Ctrl+click the player).

Either you can force YouTube to use Flash, as a temporary workaround, or... the problem will be fixed in about two months when Firefox 40 is released.
