Thanks for looking guys I appreciate it .
I've reinstalled Flash and now I can "view" YouTube videos again.

A recap so far:
  • Uninstalled Firefox and trying two older releases, v24&25.0.1, no success.
  • Reinstalled and updated Flash, bonkers.
  • Reset Firefox to it's default and running without any extensions / plugins, still nothing.
  • Have reinstalled v26 and flash.
  • Back to using FF and it seems fine at the moment apart from YouTube it's responsive an like before but it has these periods before flipping out again.

The problem persists :\ , any ideas?

Long shot but delete your browser history and al cookies,
Do not sign into gtube this time and test the issue for a while,
You might of picked some not so good cookies,

Try booting to Safe Mode with Networking, and see if the same behavior occurs there. If it does, at least the likelihood of a conflict is very low. If it works fine in safe mode, try a clean start to see if there is a conflict.

I would like to thank you all for looking and your suggestions .
I resorted to a system restore and now things are back on track and running well (yay).
It might have been something I've installed either the latest Java / Flash or a few packages that were installed
with a recently acquired game (Brothers - a tale of two sons).

Thank you all for your time .
