When trying to watch videos on YouTube and other sites the video screen is completely green.

When trying to watch videos on various websites including YouTube, the video screen is completely green. I can hear the audio, but no visual. This does not happen with every video, but it is fairly common for me. When I try to watch the same videos with Internet Explorer they work fine. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance!

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

Try to disable the hardware acceleration in the Flash Player.

I had a different problem, I was getting video driver errors constantly when watching videos, but only on YouTube. I changed this setting and it fixed it. But I had to go to another site that had flash videos to do it, when I tried it on YouTube (1) my driver kept crashing and (2) 'Settings' on the right-click menu was GRAYED OUT and couldn't be clicked.

This problem was really getting annoying and all the other things I tried didn't work. I also posted my problem here a couple of days ago but now I can't find it, and have no idea what happened to it. It's really hard to find what you need here.
