Lately when I open up firefox, and tell it to go to youtube.com, it pauses, and crashes, below is a screenshot. It's the newest version of firefox, and it keeps crashing, anyone know what the problem could be? Thanks.

Have you tried reinstalling Flash Player? Mozilla's products and Flash never really got along well for me. But reinstalling Flash might help. I suspect that is where your problem lies.

I did, and that didn't help solve my problem at all. But I posted this question somewhere else, and someone suggested that I disable/uninstall my extensions and addons one by one until I perhaps found the problem, and so I did, and it solved my problem! The problem was I had this extension called Download Embedded 0.5 from this link:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1993
It has a bug or glitch that causes firefox to crash when going to youtube, and also I looked at the reviews, and some users are saying that when using media players it crashes when doing that also. If you have it please uninstall it, and use some of the other ones I use, such as: DownloadHelper, Fast Video Download, or Magic's Video Downloader. Thanks, and please uninstall it!

That would have been my other guess... lol

Glad to know you got it figured out! Thanks for letting us know which one was the problem for you.

Cheers
