Observe the attached screenshot.  I see the issue on two different Windows 7 machine, but not on my Win 8 machines.
Is there anything in the console when this happens? It looks like it didn't build the table correctly, or it's a different version of the stats overlay.

P5 since this doesn't appear to affect normal playback.

The picture shows the Flash stats for nerds. The HTML5 version looks different.

Could it be you accidentally disabled HTML5 video playback?
ni on marcia to grab some debugging as well as try some new profiles, and whether youtube/HTML5 is in play

So on one Win 7 machine running the latest nightly I noticed it is again a video from NASCAR that I had in my playlist - If you recall earlier in the test cycle I think I filed a bug and we determined those videos were serving up flash.

On the other Windows machine I think I accidentally launched the Firefox release version instead of the Beta.

This is likely a WFM but I try a few more scenarios before I close it out.
