So, I'm watching a TV show streaming via Flash...and I'm getting intermittent static. I don't know for sure that this is a Flash issue, but it started after Flash updated (hence my wanting to do a clean install). Although I began noticing browser and Flash problems the last time FF updated (in late Nov. or early Dec.); Flash updated on the heals of FF.
Now, if I restart, the static goes away.
I'm watching the video in Chrome, but when the static begins, it happens across the board.
And here's a strange thing: When I noticed these problems beginning, I noticed that sometimes there'd be issues w/Quintessential Media Player (I don't know if it's Flash-based or what, but when Flash acts up, so does QMP). Anyway, just now I was watching the video mentioned above in Chrome through my TV, and decided to open QMP. When I did this, the sound from the video suddenly transferred from the TV to my PC speakers. When I closed QMP, it went back to normal.
The song in QMP wouldn't play if the video was playing. When I stop the video, the song DOES play, but it IS a bit staticy.
Wow. I've never experienced anything like this. I was thinking of rolling back FF to an earlier version to see if that'd help.
It seems like something gotten corrupted...but what? Thoughts?
