I have Wheezy, Debian, and although I cannot say I have that particular
issue, but if I load embedded videos in Firefox, the youtube window
"flashes" black making the video unwatchable. If however I manage to
locate and use the the "watch in YouTube" option, the video plays without
issue. I Assumed it was due to the flash player (I don't use gnash). It
was such a minor annoyance I never bothered to investigate.
