Hi...

bear with me and i'll try and explain this best i can..

if i am watching a youtube video and attempt to click on another one to start a new vid...i am getting a box come up..not via internet, via my laptop asking me to save or download the file...it wont just play it straight away on youtube..

is it a problem with youtube, firefox or my pc...

any help at all....

sorry if i aint explained it too well and i'll try harder should this baffle everyone..

cheers..

H


just looked and this is what it says...

You have chosen to open

Watch
which is a: application/octet-stream
from: http://youtube.com

What should Firefox do with this file?

Open with Browse
Save File

Does it happen with 'Firefox (safe mode)' too?

EDIT: I assume you know how to run Firefox in safe mode... By doing so you can disable all add-ons (likely to be the cause) and reset settings.
If the problem stops try enabling add-ons one by one until it breaks and you've found your culprit (assuming you have add-ons that is).

the firefox addin can be a nuisance ... i use a small program called ORBIT (free) which includes GRAB++ (for grabbing video files from utube and google)

this will allow you to move the mouse over a playing utube vid and get the message GET IT!, which will allow you to grab the video you want ... stops the annoying popups to save, especially when you dont want them

simply disable or remove the plugin in firefox!
