You probably already have latest wheezy version. Youtube movie play has
been fixed in Debian Wheezy 7.4. I see you already upgraded to 7.5.
To confirm that:
$ dpkg -l|grep gnash

They are two firefox extensions which would let you limit popups and flash
animations display.
$ sudo apt-get install xul-ext-adblock-plus xul-ext-flashblock

So was it working till yesterday? You could try to create a new profile.
$ iceweasel -P
