    I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1 with the latest updates, Adobe Flash Player 11.1.102.63, Firefox 11

    Randomly, I would keep getting errors while watching videos on YouTube that an error has occured and I'd have to refresh the page to play it correctly, this happens randomly

    I have read that many people are facing this issue lately

    Is this a Firefox bug? a Flash Player bug? or something else?

    Heck if it is a Firefox bug then Id either downgrade to Firefox v3 or ditch Firefox and install IE and have to deal with the crappy ads everywhere

    For a long while, every time I installed a new version of Firefox I had to either lose some Add ons I liked, find alternatives of which there were zero to few or live without them until the extension developers caught up. I finally just got fed up with that and went back to version 3.

    I'm currently running 3.6.28 and everything, including all YouTube videos runs just fine. I have no plans to move to a "better" version any time soon. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Those who like versions 4 and beyond are welcomed to them.

    no problem playing vids on Google chrome, that is my main browser. I have Firefox as well, but rarely use it extensively.

    Just tried Firefox 3 and Google Chrome and both had the same error!

    I ended up restoring my laptop to an image I created before installing any browser then installed IE 9 and now the problem is gone

    I hate IE to death but i want everything work perfectly so might as well stick to it

    screw Firefox and their daily stupid updates that offer the end user nothing but bugs and addons incompatibility and something as simple as youTube doesn't work!

    Heh
