Although it doesn't happen very often, occasionally I'll be in the middle of watching an episode when it will suddenly stop and give me the three-second countdown before loading the next episode. Naturally, it's supposed to happen when an episode ends, but I don't think it's supposed to randomly occur in the middle.

It happened so sparingly before that I had decided to just ignore it, but just today (on the episode I'm currently watching) it has now, in three different places, stopped my video and autoplayed the next one. I have to keep exiting fullscreen and reloading the previous page so that I can continue the episode where it left off before randomly autoplaying the next one.

As I'm sure you all can imagine, this is really obnoxious. It doesn't seem like a setting issue either, but more of a bug.

If it matters, I'm using a 2011 MacBook Pro running Mavericks, and I'm accessing Crunchyroll on the latest version of Firefox.

This is my first time creating a thread, so if I missed something I was supposed to do I apologize.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It won't fix the video stopping, but you can disable autoplay by clicking the arrow inside a circle in the player control bar.

I have the exact same problem while watching One Piece. I have autoplay turned off. It takes me to the end of episode screen, even though it's nowhere close to being the end of the episode. I'm watching on my PC, via Chrome. So I have to hit ESC and then reload the episode. This happened 3 separate times on One Piece episode 344. And I just started watching episode 345 and its done it once already on this episode, but it may do it more, since I'm still watching it.

I'm curious if this is similar to DVD / Blu ray file structure. In that, all the episodes of every anime on Crunchyroll have an "end of episode" flag. And maybe a small percentage of episodes had these flags placed incorrectly in these episodes. Perhaps even having multiple instances of these flags.
