    Everytime I watch a YouTube video in HD or in HQ Firefox always lags. Every 30-40 seconds the video pauses for about 2 seconds. It's weird because this doesn't happen in Safari so it must not be my computer...

    any fix for this?

    Hi,
    have never seen such stuff.

    By the way,
    the Firefox 3.5 Beta has a rewritten media cache, and this is maybe the fix for you.

    3.5 hasn't improved that at all for me - perhaps it's even worse (at least as of beta 4.) Any kind of Flash video is basically unwatchable.
