Firefox often crashes while I am watching videos on youtube. I don't know if this is a problem on the website's end but it doesn't happen when I use Internet Explorer. I don't like to use Internet Explorer, I am a die-hard Firefox fan.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log into youtube.

2.Watch some videos. In full screen mode this one crashes all the time:
Actual Results:  
Firefox reported that it crashed and gave me the option to restore my session. When I selected the option to restore the previous session Firefox restored the session but crashed again in the middle of the video. This happens a lot and I send Mozilla all of the error reports when Firefox asks me to.

Expected Results:  
The expected result is watching full videos on youtube without Firefox crashing.
