When using friendbar video playback is choppy and has major issues. Once disabled, all flash based streaming video works great.
It might be some other extension that in conjunction is causing this issue so here is a list of currently installed extensions:
Adblock Plus 1.0.1
Foxmarks Bookmark Sync 2.6.0
Google Gears 0.5.4.2
Personal Menu 4.1.2
Secure Login 0.9.3
Here is a website that was especially bad

I'm going to disable all extensions besides friendbar to see if problem persists. I'm running Windows 7, Firefox 3.0.6, Core 2 Duo 1.8ghz, 3gb ram.
Ok well after disabling everything but friendbar it seems to be doing alright. I'll start re-enabling my other extensions and see how it goes.
Hmm well I renabled everything and uninstalled Greasefire (never used it) and all is well. I'm not sure if greasefire was causing this issue or not. Bugs suck.
I lied, it still isn't working. Whenever the bar begins to slide a new message across it causes the video to straight up pause and audio to stop until slide is complete.
Thank you for sharing this detailed bug report.
We will try to replicate. It does appear to be related to some combination of extensions. However, it also seems that it may be the result of one that is not Friendbar.
Thanks again for taking the time to write this up.
Um, nope. Before I downloaded friendbar, there was never an issue with videos being choppy. A video will pause for a second when a new post flashes orange. Reliably, every time that there is a new update for twitter or facebook, the video I watch pauses for a second or two. It's pretty annoying.
But I haven't had to worry about that lately, since Friendbar isn't letting me log into Twitter. Which is a whole other problem........
