Hanging Problems in Chrome and The Fox.

Ive been having a load of problems with my browsers.....

Firefox is generally fine except.....When I use youtube I can click on maybe 1 or 2 videos then after that every video I click on makes the the broswer just hang indefinitely and they won't load...really really annoying. Also Facebook chat is a huge problem too. When I use facebook chat it dissrupts the whole browser, so when someones typing and the message pops up you can do nothing at all in the browser for like 2 seconds and if you speak to more than 2 people at once it also messes up. I also have to shrink and expand that chat box just so I can respond other wise typing does not register, I have tried installing new flash versions...it makes no difference.

So I decided to install chrome. Which worked ok initially but now just hangs indefinitely when I click on any link after I have been useing it for a couple of minutes. Facebook chat works but just hangs rather than messing up.

Internet explorer 8 also hangs when trying to use youtube.

Any help would be hugely appreciated as this is really really annoying me.

Hey sere83. :)

It's possible there is something wrong with your internet connection/settings but I am not sure.

I would suggest posting a topic in the Waiting Room with a link back to this topic. You will receive guaranteed help from someone who is more knowledgeable than I in this area. :)
