Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Now seriously...

every once in a while when I get to ET and try to click to a youtube video and I only see it for 2 minutes... and then .. no other youtube I try to see works... I have to restart computer.

I use opera... could anyone explain it to me what is going on? I have read that there is some problem with firefox... is this soemthing similar?

why is it random?.. of course there must be soem series fo events which trigger it.. but what events?

A pleasure

Anyone got any suggestions?

As I said at other times, this is not a problem with Firefox; it is primarily a problem with newer versions of Flash, which will cause problems of varying degrees to people with different browsers and different computer memories.

Until now, it apeared that Firefox 3.0 beta and M$ IE produces the least problems. However, maybe Flash updated itself again, because lately, my Firefox 2.0 on the home computer only produces the same error as IE: after I play 3-5 videos on a page, if I try any more, it says "We are sorry, video no more available" - a problem solved by page reload.
