It all started when I upgraded to Flash Player 11.3. Flash objects such as videos on YouTube began to have screen errors, or would completely freeze up my browser (see pictures below). So I googled for some help, and I found a thread about a user with a similar problem, he was directed to revert to Flash Player 126.96.36.199. I did the same, and it worked, but then only older videos on YouTube would play. Newer videos (2011 and onward) would not load and Firefox would tell me I had a missing plug-in. So I finally gave in and went back to the current version (11.3.300.257) and I'm having the same issues again. This is only on Firefox. My Firefox version is 12.0, but it doesn't work any better on v14, I've already tried. Everything works fine in IE and Chrome.
Newer videos (apparently ones with the HTML5 player?) lock up my browser and give me this message:
(I wonder if there's a way to view that script and see what's on line 53 that's giving me these problems...)
Older videos play properly but the graphics go crazy if I scroll my mouse:
How the heck do I fix this?
Browser: Firefox 12.0
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTS 250, Driver version 188.8.131.52 (5/15/2012)
I'm still running Flash Player 11.3 again (the latest version) and after clearing out my cache and all my cookies, I no longer get the unresponsive script errors. However I'm still getting the scrolling errors like in the 2nd picture. I'm afraid that if I go back to version 11.1 I'm going to be going back to the beginning and end up bringing all the errors and headaches back, so I'd like an expert's opinion as to what I should do now to fix the graphical errors.
