Alright So I have a weird issue. When I watch youtube videos there are weird colors on the screen every few seconds and then they dissapear. this doesnt happen with any other browser nor does it happen with firefox when I am on Hulu or Netflix.

It is kind of hard to explain what I am saying so I attached some screenshots.

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

If there is still a problem, Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} While you are in safe mode;

Poke around safe web sites. Are there any problems?

Then restart.

check this:

I cleared the cache and disabled the hardware acceleration. youtube looked like it was in slow motion. I re-enabled the hardware acceleration and it is still doing the weird color thing. I attached a new image.

All my software and drivers are up to date.

      • I also have another issue which is that when I click history and then clear recent history, it sometimes looks like the first image that i attached, when i scroll my mouse over it, then it looks like image 2. I don't know if this is related or not***

What media player is used if you check this via the right-click context menu of the player area?

Is that an HTML5 media player or a Flash based player?

A Flash player shows a Flash context menu.

if I right click on youtube it says about the HTML5 player.
