Problems with video link on the sidebar, possibly making browser crash

JasmineG May 15, 2010 11:08 PM

For the past few days, the video link on the right sidebar is just constantly a black window with a whirling white circle, when it has been functional in the past. Also, at least four times in the past two days, my browser has crashed while on Chowhound, and I'm wondering if the video issues have something to do with it.

I'm using Firefox 3.5.9, and have noticed the blank video on two different computers (both using FF), though the crashing problems have just been over the past two days and on this computer.

    Hi Jasmine - thanks for letting us know. We just recently moved to a new video player which may be causing this bug. We will investigate this issue and fix as soon as we have a solution.

      Seems like it may be the way the new video player is interacting with ad blockers - I get the same effect in Firefox as Jasmine but goes away when I disable the ad blocker.

        We believe we solved the issue, but let us know if this pops up again.
