there's always a ton of video links I go to that won't play.....and a lot of them crash Firefox.

anyone else have these problems?
what is the cause?
I read on error and it referred to ntdll.dll, so I downloaded a newer one and extracted it into my windows/system folder, but no help:(

even took firefox back to an earlier version that used to work, and it didn't help either.....right now ver. 1.5.0.2



ver. 1.5.0.4 was the version I initially began having trouble with




edit:

tried this also to no avail:(
Troubleshooting


Poorly designed or incompatible Extensions can cause problems with your browser, including make it crash, slow down page display, etc. If you encounter strange problems relating to parts of the browser no longer working, the browser not starting, windows with strange or distorted appearance, degraded performance, etc, you may be suffering from Extension or Theme trouble. Restart the browser in Safe Mode. On Windows, start using the "Safe Mode" shortcut created in your Start menu or by running firefox.exe -safe-mode. On Linux, start with ./firefox -safe-mode and on Mac OS X, run: cd /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/
./firefox-bin -safe-mode
When Firefox is started in Safe Mode, all extensions are disabled and the Default theme is used. Disable the Extension or Theme that is causing trouble and then start normally. If you uninstall an extension that is installed with your user profile (i.e. you installed it from a web page) and then wish to install it for all user profiles using the -install-global-extension command line flag, you must restart the browser once to cleanse the profile extensions datasource of traces of that extension before installing with the switch. If you do not do this you may end up with a jammed entry in the Extensions list and will be unable to install the extension globally.
If you encounter strange problems relating to bookmarks, downloads, window placement, toolbars, history, or other settings, use the Firefox Safe Mode to disable all extensions, themes, and optionally attempt to clean up any corrupted data.

Milk I wish I could help I cannot though because for some reason everything I seem to try through Mozilla seems to work.
