Flash video issues under Firefox 3.6.3 on Ubuntu 10.04 (64 bit)

I have Ubuntu 10.04 64bit and in the last few days I have been experiencing some weird issues with youtube flash videos under Firefox 3.6.3.
The video is loaded normally and I am able to watch at it but, all of a sudden, video and audio disappear without apparent reasons. If I want to go on watching, I have to reload the page.
Is there anyone who knows how to fix the problem? Thanks so much in advance.
Best regards.

When stuff like this happens to me, I usually go through the install steps again to make sure I did the right stuff.

There was an issue a few days ago here: Did you look through that? Perhaps you have something different configured in your system and would be advised to first try reinstalling.

I see you cross-posted at linuxforums. Searching that forum yielded this:
There was no reply from the original poster so I assume that worked for him.

Lastly, whenever I install I simply do this: It's worked on all my 64-bit ubuntu 10.04 systems so far (5 of them).

[seems solved]

Hi Robotsari,
thank You very much for your help. It seems I solved by changing the line
export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true firefox
in the file

I hope it is finally fixed.
I realized that the problem comes up when another firefox tab or session is started.
