Well, I should read the dates on the web pages I read. I guess I need a Firefox plugin that flashes the original post date in giant text so that I don't miss it. Come to find out the issue I was attempting to fix using the aforementioned fix, was from 2004, yup, three years old. Which would explain why the fix didn't work, lol. After digging a little deeper, I found that it is a different problem, and currently of unknown cause, in the current version of iTunes, I checked the publish dates and the iTunes version to make sure I was getting accurate information this time. However, by disabling the cross-fade option I was able to get rid of the stuttering, at least so far. Now to wait until Apple releases a real fix.
