Why can't watch Youtube videos using Firefox? It's possible using other browsers like Internet Explorer or Opera...

This problem started a couple of weeks ago. It started off that sometimes, when I went to youtube, the videos wouldn't load, and I had to refresh several times to see the videos.

*Note that I have an extremely fast internet connection, so videos should load up very quickly*

And now, whenever I want to watch a youtube video, I can get to the video page, but the video itself wouldn't load up! I wait for hours and refresh again and again but to no avail.

I can watch google videos or metacafe though (or any other video website)

Please help. And please note that I am not the most technical of computer users, so a step by step solution would be much appreciated! :)

That's really interesting news, Parikari100.....if just a tad late.
Thanks but I think I'll just lock this relic now.
