Cannot access random part of youtube video in firefox

My computer is running on fedora 19 with gnash install (installing adobe flash is not an option for me since it's proprietary.), as well as Firefox.

Actually I can watch many YouTube videos using HTML5.

My problem is that I have to watch the video from beginning to end without the possibility of going backwards. If I try to go a few seconds backward the video freezes with the usual YouTube hourglass. I can pause the video without any problems though.

Then no video is able to work. I have to restart Firefox by deleting the lock and .parentlock files. Only then can I get video functionality.

Do you have any solution to this problem?
