Default Youtube making FireFox 3 Crash!

I noticed this just at the start of thanksgiving break but when ever I click on a youtube link and It loads up, firefox freezes up and crashes. Now I have tested this and no matter what link I click it ALWAYS crashes. I go to the page and I see that youtube made the video playing window wider. Problem?

Is anyone else having this problem?
Thank god for the ability for firefox to restore sessions.

Firefox has always had problems with external scripts.

Good Job that YouTube videos arn't external scripts then!

I've noticed that I am getting blank white squares where the videos is supposed to be, ever since the whole wide-screen thing. Only sometimes, though.
