Windows 7: Firefox/Opera|youtube reloads video when jumping back/forward

05 Jul 2013   #1

Firefox/Opera|youtube reloads video when jumping back/forward

Every time I try to jump to a buffered part of the video, it reloads the video from the chosen time. It's really annoying!

Happens in Firefox&Opera, But NOT in Internet explorer. Already re-installed adobe flash.

Please advice,

I use Firefox and I have noticed this too, but it seems to me that it depends on the video. For some reason, some videos do this and some don't. I haven't tried YouTube in other browsers yet, but I don't really want to.

That can be a difficult task because I don't remember which videos do it and which ones don't. When they don't, I'm glad, when they do, I'm not. Beyond that, I just keep watching and when I'm done, I'm done.
