For the record: i use Firfox Win XP I have the latest Flash software, and java.

I visit some forums on occasion and before i was able to see the animated smilies in motion.....but now they are frozen!!

My question is what is causing this ...because it might be related to my youtube problem with videos skipping and cutting off in the middle of something.

Anyone can lend a hand on this....please jump in.


I Fixed it with online help. Turns out that my firewall was blocking animated objects. Now i have to see if this will also help with youtube as well.
