I have reinstalled the flash plugin numerous times and it fixes the issue for a short while then it comes back. I am not sure what else I can do to fix this. Its very annoying. I see there is something about cookies with this issues but not sure how to do that fix. I watch a lot of youtube videos and I am going to have to resort to using google chrome instead of FF.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Recent crashes of certain multimedia contents (this includes Youtube videos, certain flash games and other applications) in conjunction with Firefox are most probably caused by a recent Flash 11.3 update and/or a malfunctioning Real Player browser plugin.
In order to remedy the problem, please perform the steps mentioned in these Knowledge Base articles:

No real player. I have unistalled and reinstalled flash player so many times its funny. The only thing new in your post is the downgrade flash player which I just did and hope that works.
Just to point out that the downgraded version is not supported but an option to fix your issue. If this is an realplayer related issue, please uninstall realplayer and then restart your computer then re-install realplayer and restart your computer to see if it fixes your issue.
No real player and even the downgrade has stopped working. I just got the error again on about 10 different videos
What is going on. This is really annoying. Guess I am going to switch to chrome till mozilla gets this fixed.
I don't understand by what you keep saying "No realplayer" - Please elaborate on that.
Also it may be fixed by itself (rarely) but it will require manual contact to fix the issue completely.
Reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.
Clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.
"Clear the Cache":
"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
Well I am going to reopen this thread an say that FF is really a pita. I did a clean install of windows and FF worked for about 30 mins on youtube then it broke. I have the most updated flash and am running 16.0. I have a cookie cleaner addon so I can clear youtube cookies only that seems to work but 30mins to a few hours later its back. The only issue is that I have to close the browser out then reopen it for that too work.
Is there any permanent fix for this? Doesn't mosilla care about its users to fix such a prevalent bug?
