    I have a 3 year old macbook and haven't really had issues until now. Now whenever I try and load youtube or some other site with video it basically freezes. This happens using safari and firefox. Any ideas on what the problem is? This only started happening a few days ago.

    Try using SeaMonkey as your browser when you stream Youtube, it worked for me on my 6 year old iMac while Safari and FF froze every time.

    Try updating or re-installing Adobe Flash Player. Mine did this a few months ago and this fixed it.
