    I currently have a '11 MBA 11" running the latest Lion OS.

    Sometimes when I try to watch a youtube video, or any type of flash video I just get a black box where the video should be. If you refresh the page you get the same thing, no video/flash. This happens at least once a week.

    Luckily, when I restart the computer the video comes back but it is a bit annoying to say the least.

    Is there anyone else that is experiencing this problem? Any way to remedy this?

    Thanks in advance!

    No. I can't say I've ever seen that or anyone complain here about it.

    I have noticed the same problem with my MBA. If I quit Safari and open it back up, it sometimes fixes the issue. It is very annoying!

    I just restart the whole thing and click reopen all windows so I don't lose what I was doing.

    At least I am not the only one now... I doubt this is something I can duplicate if I take it to a genius bar as it happens randomly.
