Unhappy Firefox / Flash Player problem: Online video will play only audio, video is white.

I cant figure this out. I've un-installed firefox and re-installed it a few times, along with flash player, and its not working. I watch youtube videos all the time. When I click on a video, the screen will be white, but audio will play. Sometimes when I reload the page, it will be a black screen like normal, and play the video with audio.

Is there a fix for this?

I have Ubuntu Linux 8.04 LTS Desktop edition.

Yes I have tried installing/re-installing, un-installing Ubuntu restricted extras. No Luck.
