I have Firefox 3.0.11 installed with the latest shockwave. All streaming videos (from various source sites such as Youtube) jitter and skip a frame every 5-7 seconds. When I load up the same url in IE 7 or 8, the video streams perfectly.

Firefox is now downloading their latest version 3.5. Don't know why you had probs with 3.0.11 -- could either be because the latest Flash version is not installed or server probs.
Just download the latest Firefox 3.5, install the latest flash, and cheeck your webspeed -- especially if you're watching 720p videos (HD).
