About 30 to 50% of the time, clicking on almost anything in youtube results in raw HTML code dumped to the screen rather that be interpreted to display a meaningful page. In addition, comments a make under a video don't show up. The problem started March 21st. I never had the problem before. Turned out that was when your new DOWNLOADHELPER 4.7.2 got installed !!! When I disable DownloadHelper, the problem goes away. THIS IS WHY I DON'T LIKE UPGRADING. IT JUST LEADS TO NEW PROBLEMS. Older versions of DownloadHelper worked fine.

Solution is to Fix DownloadHelper so it stops interfering with youtube.



Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to www.youtube.com while have DownloadHelper 4.7.2 installed.
2. Try one or more times to play a video until raw code is dumped to the screen.
3. Usually takes several page reloads to get the page to load correctly
Actual Results:  
I get a bunch of **** like the following excerpt below dumped to my screen:

var yt = yt || {};

};


Expected Results:  
Expect to see a proper webpage displayed and be able to watch a video.

Ken, Have you reported this to the add-on developer (http://www.downloadhelper.net/support-expert.php)?

(This sounds like it could possibly be related to Bug 442315 or at least they both have similar outcomes.)
