Its really getting on my nerves. Its been doing this for awhile, but it just keeps getting worse. I got Windows 7 64 bit..And I use Firefox 23.0.1..Now the problem is that everytime I watch videos on Youtube, or when I just..BROWSE Youtube, my taskbar freezes, Firefox freezes..I can't do anything. Then I get a pop up saying that Shockwave Flash is busy or is not responding. So then I click "End plugin" along with the check box "Dont ask again"..And after that, videos play just fine. But it continues to happen aagain and again..So I thought "Hey, if this is causing so many problems, then the hell with it" and I disabled the plugin in the plugins tab. Now here's where it gets sketchy. The videos dont play after that. First, it tells me to turn Shockwave back on, then a black screen, and then it tells me I need Adobe Flash Player 11 (Which I have reinstalled countless times. But it still doesn't appear in the add-ons of Firefox). So its obvious I NEED Shockwave..Or maybe I dont. I don't know..That's why I'm posting this. I have a crappy video card..An Nvidia geforce 310. But if it was a problem with the video card, I think I'd have more problems..

Soo..What do I do to fix this?

I have the EXACT same problem. I'm thinking of just switching to google chrome.

I'm sorry to burst your bubble, buddy..But I tried Chrome and..i still have the same problem. There's gotta be an alternative flash player to Shockwave. Lets go backwards into the beginning of the year..And the last two years. I had no problems at all. This problem only started THIS year. And I think some new updates have to do with it. Whether its Adobe Flash, Shockwave, or Firefox..I don't know.

But all I know is that this problem wasn't there in the beginning.
