Youtube videos causing Internet Explorer to crash Susana1027 4/2/10 2:36 PM
This afternoon, April 2, all youtube videos are causing Internet Explorer to crash.  I can use IE for anything else.  But I can't watch any videos on youtube.  What's happening?  It was working fine this morning.

Extra info - go into youtube with Firefox and it works fine.

I am having the same problem in Safari. It's really pissing me off. I can't even mouse over a link in the related videos box without my browser crashing.

The crashing with the new design/layout has been happening to a number of people with many different browser though mostly Firefox and Safari, so Dj you fix may not work..

I have only found the main discussion about it for Firefox, though this here look like a good one for IE users, so will use this here as reference also.

I also believe a Top Contributor has reported it to YT, so just waiting for Liz to post about it soon..
