I'm just starting Blender.
When I set up a smoke domain using a half a Sphere, and the Quick Smoke (the long way of doing this too, using youtube how tos).
When I run it Alt+A it will show the smoke, then every time after that it is gets worse and then begins not showing smoke, so I have no way of knowing my results unless I render it to a file then check it like that.
Problem two, it sticks on frame 1 at times as well after following the youtube video I go to play it again to see the results, using Alt+A and it cycles frame 1.
I wish, I knew what detailed information you really needed to understand what I am talking about, but I am confused about this so me making heads or tails out of it to enplane it in here better is a far cry to do.
