Hello Lena,

Thanks for this tip.  It has solved my recent problems with youtube.

However, when I use Google Street Maps (which needs flash) with your suggested 
settings the screen turns black and freezes.  If I reverse your settings 
Google Street Maps works but HTML5 videos do not.  Any suggestions?

Cheers ...

Marek
