    Anyone else experiencing this.

    I have a 15" i7. Using gfxcardstatus to always run Intel. Always used to run fine but lately when I flip between regular Youtube video mode and fullscreen, Firefox stutters for a second and has to reload the video and continue from where it left off.

    I'm using Firefox 3.6, watching Youtube in the HTML5 mode. Maybe I should try regular Flash mode in Youtube and see what happens.

    i'm having somewhat of a similar issue, except when i switch to full screen it turns to a white screen... anything flash related not just youtube.. I still get audio, but the screen stays white! :confused:

    I usually have this issue. Just ignore it and move on. It is not a huge issue.

    Appzapper'd Firefox.. cleared out everything. Fresh install of 3.6 with the latest release of Flash. Still happens randomly on Youtube vids whether I'm running off the Intel or nVideo card with gfxCardStatus... grr

    Right click on video --> Flash setting --> Disable hardware acceleration.
