Default AW: Firefox problems

Hi,
Have you installed the most current version of flash?
Remove the .adobe and .macromedia directory in your homedir to reset the flash settings.
Install the original firefox from mozilla.org in order to find out whether it's a firefox or a fedora problem.

Have firefox-12.0-1.fc16.i686
Problem1: Youtube videos auto-repeat. Have no idea where the setting for
that is.
Problem2: Most youtube videos stop at 0:42 seconds position and after a
while (about a couple of minutes),
I get an error message in the video display area, telling me
to try again later.
Problem3: Clicking File->Quit does NOT save my tabs and windows, which
is contrary to what
the mozilla support page claims:
http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Firefox%20does%20not%20ask%20to%20save%20tabs%20an d%20windows%20on%20exit

Am I missing a setting or settings?

Tried to login to my bugzilla.mozilla account to search for similar bugs,
but for some reason, the login fails with server not found.

I removed .adobe and .macromedia.
I do have the original FF 12.0 from mozilla.com.
I just killed the Fedora repo FF, and started the
vanilla FF from mozilla.com.
Result:
Playing a YT vid stopped at 1:03 and then I got the dreaded
"An error occurred. Please try again later.
It's like YT only streams a tiny portion, then stops.

YT = "YouTube"?

I've noticed, lately, that YouTube no longer streams the whole thing to
you, just a certain amount. I can see that the loading bar below the
picture never keeps on going all the way through on a paused video, like
it used to. Probably done to make it hard(er) for people to download
videos. But, probably, making it impossible to watch videos on slow
networks.

FWIW, I've only seen that behavior if the video being streamed is flash. I just
paused an 8+ minute video in html5 the loading bar completed. A paused flash video
stopped loading after about 55 seconds of video.

The download extensions to chrome and firefox don't seem to be affected. So, I don't
think the theory of making downloads harder holds true.

Ahh... You're probably right.
Well, Google, who owns youtube is very likely
trying to find ways to prevent people from
downloading content that they do not own,
nor have the copyrights to.

Just my $.02's worth about YT.
