I have the exact same issue, extremely frustrating and it has been on going now for around 2 weeks, youtube videos won't load until they fuller buffer in the background. The screen will just stay black and the loading logo will spin till the entire video has buffered, then it will start playing. Very annoying.

Google chrome loads the videos fine (ironic) but firefox does not. Deleting the cookies/clearing history was a temporary fix before, but it doesn't seem to work now.

The videos will only play once they have fully loaded on the grey bar, where as in google chrome they play instantly, something bugged with the latest firefox version? A solution would be amazing, I reinstalled/downgraded flash a billion times but it never fixed it.
