youtube flash player message

Has anyone else had youtube problems in the last few months and if so please share how to fix this problem if you were able to. I have all but quit using the site over the flash player message that pops up on every other video. Also I am not the only person I know having the same problems despite updating the flash player. This happens on both IE and Firefox. Last night I had high hopes when youtube went down temporarily for maintenance that it was something they were aware of and were fixing it and was not just me being ignorant. There are even videos on youtube on how viewers resolved the problem, which in summary was to allow popups on anything that was blocking popups. This works sometimes and sometimes it does not--which leaves me wondering why, why can i refresh 5 times and finally the video plays and yet sometimes it never does until maybe an hour later when nothing has been done to the computer in the meantime. Ok now I am just ranting, here is the message and the things I have tried.

Message:

Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player.

This is what I have tried:

Uninstalling and reinstalling the newest flash player numerous times, making sure to restart the computer after uninstall, turning off the firewall and any programs before reinstall, and restarting after reinstall.

In firefox going to tools-->options-->content-->unchecking block pop up windows.

Same as above but making youtube an exception and leaving the box checked

Under view-->toolbars, removing all toolbars except the navigation and bookmark that comes with firefox

Checking display balloon messages in comodo firewall. This is the closest thing I could find in comodo to allowing popups. Windows firewall is off

Going into adblock plus and typing youtube in as an exception to the rule but for some reason I cannot make it stay there after I hit ok or enter.

Making sure flash is enabled in windows and also firefox addons.

Anyway any ideas? Thanks :)
