    Every time I share a youtube video on facebook, internet explorer opens window over and over and just keeps going. It doesn't seem to be a new window, just keeps popping up. Don't have the problem sharing to twitter. I am using windows 8 Is it just buggy? This is a new hp computer with windows 8 home edition. Sorry, ignore signature. Will update asap.

    Thanks! That did it. I made internet explorer desktop the default and sharing youtube vids on facebook works fine now.
    There are loads of youtube videos on windows 8 which are very useful.
