damn firefox keeps messing up.
 
so whenever i am browsing forums or internets in general, inevitably some youtube videos are gonna come up. after maybe 10 minutes of browsing (not necessarily just youtube, but a youtube video i viewed), would just pop up on firefox, and the page would not respond for maybe 10 seconds, then after that, it recovers and works fine. almost like for some reason recent history from youtube is affecting it. so for example, this is what i would see. Sometimes the image is stretched or repeating to the bottom of the page.
This never happens in safe mode, but it still happens in regular firefox if i disable all the add ons.

Yeah... I finally switched to Chrome since I found equivalent extensions.

FF4 was absolute buggy garbage on OSX... and FF5 wasn't much better.

Mozilla has really gone downhill. :(

switch to chrome, or try newer gpu drivers. Maybe flash too?

Not only does Chrome have an import from FF options, but it has AdBlack, NoScript, FlashBlock, etc.

I use LastPass, that's a good one. Other than that, I keep things pretty light on Chrome.

Why no script? Most aggravating browsing experience ever. Its like using a really paranoid anti virus.
