    I've been using ML since yesterday and am really impressed. Haven't had any problems with it but I am noticing a bug in Safari. When I click on a video to watch in YouTube, it plays for a little and then the page refreshes. It's done this to every video I've tried watching. It's extremely annoying and I have no clue what's causing it. This never occurred on Lion.

    Anyone else with the same problem? Or know of a fix?

    I've been seeing two similar issues with youtube since upgrading to ML.

    1) The video will play for a short time, then refresh like you said.

    2) The video only buffers for a portion of the video, then stops. The video doesn't just pause, it actually behaves the same as if it had come to the end of the video, and the list of recommended videos pops up.

    I'm seeing the second issue in firefox, and chrome also, so I'm not sure if this has to do with the ML update, or if there is an issue with youtube that just coincided with the ML update.

    At first I thought it may be the wifi issue people are reporting causing the video not to load, but my wifi doesn't seem to be dropping out.
