    I recently downloaded Firefox to replace Safari because there were problems downloading images on websites on a fairly routine basis.

    In doing so, I noticed a loud fan from the MBP (2011 version) while watching videos, something I never dealt with when using Safari. Is there a reason to this or a possible solution?

    It's a very noticeable and increasingly obnoxious roar.

    I used the 'Search' feature on this website but didn't find anything that related to this problem.

    For Flash-related issues:
    • Find your Flash version and make sure it's the latest version available. Never install or update Flash from a pop-up on a website. Always go to Adobe's site to get Flash or updates.
    • Install ClickToFlash (Safari), Flashblock (Firefox) or FlashBlock (Chrome) to control which Flash content plays on websites.
    • Try using the YouTube HTML5 Video Player to watch YouTube videos, when available. (May impact fullscreen viewing. See link for details.) As far as performance impact, YMMV.
