This may be a Linux specific bug, I am not sure. Can someone running a Linux system please verify.

This is a linux specific bug, has been reproduced on ubuntu 14.10, 14.04, fedora, centos, and linux mint. It has been checked by someone else at some point and runs fine on windows. This also happens on youtube from time to time and have done a server check and has shown that it is not youtubes server it is a problem with the browser.

Resolving old bugs which are likely not relevant any more, since NPAPI plugins are deprecated.
