I too started facing the issue after I upgrade to Ubuntu 11.04. All scenarios are same
Hey!

I'm also facing the problem for severals months now.

It doesn't seems to appear on a specific computer nor with add-ons.

I cannot view correctly video on youtube / dailymotion / Vimeo via the Flash plug-in on the following setups :
- White Mac Book - 4 Go Ram - Firefox 7 - No Add-ons @ Home
- PC Windows 7 Desktop Core 2 Quad CPU - 4 Go Ram - Firefox 7 - No-Addons @ Home
- PC Windows 7 Portable Quad Core - 8 Go Ram - Firefox 7 - Firebug, Webdevelopper ToolBar, Color Contrast @ Work

I have observed this also happends with older version of Firefox 4,5 and 6.

Regards,

Adrien
