Only seen on mac (tested mac and linux) in 11/8, 11/12 and 11/23 Nightly

Bad distortion of audio after playing a youtube video for a few minutes.  Distortion doesn't go away on Seek; usually goes away on pause/resume (but didn't one time).  Gets progressively worse once it starts to the point of unintelligibility.

Last run I did distortion started at about 1:25 into the video, but seems somewhat randomish.

Starting with A/V Playback
Maybe we can close this, we don't have much to work with and it may be a hardware/OS issue:

17:49 < jesup> kinetik: The audio glitching with youtube went away after a 
               reboot.... no idea what's up with that.    Odd.   I hadn't done 
               anything "interesting" with audio; at most just used a headset 
               at some point in the past.  (Also I checked the 'midi' tool; 
               input and output were both set to 44100.)
Per comment 1, close it as WONTFIX. Please reopen it if this problem still happens and it is confirmed that it is related to Firefox.
