    Did this happen once, or does it occur anytime you're trying to watch a YT video? What's the processor speed of your Mac, and how much RAM is installed?

    1 GHz MDD, 1.75 GB ram. Radeon 9600XT gpu.
    It happened on the first session after I installed FPR 9, but after I watched two other music videos successfully.

    So this may have been a glitch we can't reproduce.

    Generally, 1 GHz is a bit on the slow side for Youtube, 1.25 GHZ or better is recommended. Especially for videos that have a "shaky" camera 1 GHz won't be enough, otherwise it will always be an edge case. You can try Preferences>TenFourFox>'Enable MSE/media quality options', this will give you more resolutions on Youtube, try watching at 240px or 144px.
