Windows 7: Firefox and Flash player crash problem

Firefox and Flash player crash problem

Firefox started to give me some trouble a couple of days and it seems I can't view pages who have Flash content installed. It seems to crash for no apparent reason, or if I let it play, after 2 seconds or so the browser also stops responding. I updated both, Flash player and Firefox to their latest version and it does the same thing. I even tried updating the video card drivers thinking that it might not work because of it. Any ideeas why this is happening?

Ok folks, figured it out myself after doing more research of the subject, so basically for anyone having the same issue as I and wants to know what to do to make videos work again here's how:
1. Click on any YouTube video it can be either a particular video searched by you, or just one available on the main page, it really doesn't matter just be sure you're on a particular YouTube video's page so you can make the next steps.
2. Right click so a list with options can appear and select Settings.
3. Uncheck "Enable hardware acceleration" and click on Close.
4. Refresh the video you're currently vieweing or search/view another one to verify that the change has been made.
