User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:13.0) Gecko/20120329 Firefox/13.0a2
Build ID: 20120329042012

Steps to reproduce:

search for video (song) at Youtube. click on a video, page starts to load, before 'song' starts to play hit back arrow or link to another page.

Actual results:

the audio from the original page that was exited before play started, starts to play and as I've left that page, there is no way to stop it. It will continue to end of 'song' (video) and if it is a page that is a 'play list' it will continue on with the list. Reload any page does not stop it. Going back to the page does not stop it. 
It Only happens when the page is exited either by back arrow or link to elsewhere, before audio (video) starts that it does this.
It's been happening about 6 to 10 days of updates on Aurora 13.0a2, running on openSuSE 12.1 Linux 3.1.9-1.4-desktop and KDE 4.7.2 release 5 ( both fully updated), flash ver.

Expected results:

either the (video) audio portion, should never start playing or it should time out, run out if it had started to cache, as soon as it 'realizes' the page changed. 
I do not have a fast enough connection that the whole song could be cached in such a short time (2-5 secs) and No way a whole play list. 

I am connected med. signal via wlan which is connected to Netgear AP, to 10 mb/s bay-synoptics hub, to smoothwall linux router (no proxy, but iptables), to comcast cable modem...

Severity: normal → major
Does this still happens?

Could you reproduce the bug at safe mode(http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode) with addons disabled?

It should be either a dupe of Bug 757262 or a bug from Autopager[1].

I've replaced scriptish with greasemonkey and have the same issue.
I've emailed the developer at admin@flashvideodownloader.org
I've given them all the info I have.
As of Today's build, 06.01.13, the add-on still does Not work.
The only difference I can find is FF. The add-on (Flash Download 3.8.2) stops working Repeatedly at build 18.12.12.
I can reproduce it over and over by running the 18 December 2012 build and then updating it using Help/About/Check for Update and allowing update / restart, everyday since the 18th of Dec.
