Sudden freezing and sound looping when watching youtube

Postby ormu on Thu Aug 30, 2012 5:58 am

This has happened two times now: When I'm watching videos from Youtube (or just listening to the music, surfing on another tab) the computer suddenly freezes and sound starts looping. I heard that disabling Firefox hardware acceleration could help but it did not. Now I'm testing with Flash HW acceleration disabled as well. Has anyone noticed this problem recently? Does anyone know if it's a problem with Flash, sound system or what?
