1. How do I TURN OFF 'animations' to speed up my browsing?

2. I still have no way to stop gmail, from 'auto filling' in my gmail address, as I log out, forcing me everytime to DELete it manually. I did try the fix a prior contributor to this site advised, NO change.

3. I need to find a better browser. I have a old slow laptop. Built in 11/11, is a Acer Aspire. 1.4 speed. Even lots of

   things disabled and running about no special apps, she's slow.

bear in mind, the apt. bldg. provides the internet/wifi in the rent. They call it 'hi speed' it's more like slow/middle speed. And many neighbors run 4-5 devices of a 140 unit bldg. I run just this one laptop no other devices at all.

Recently been to the Microsoft store for some things. At the store my Acer runs VERY fast so it's not only my laptop but this bldg. Having said THAT, I speak often to the neighbors and theirs run FAST. nice and fast.

So if I had a NEW Asus ssd i7 I am certain I'd run fast. Meantime, at nights I often get thrown offline or can't hardly at all use my yahoo mail...just buffers.

WHAT IS A GOOD BROWSER TO USE NOT FIREFOX? Thanks

All right, basically, I have one big problem and one smaller problem. The big one is that firefox is really slow to load bing, pages taking upwards of 30 seconds to load fully, and most of the time the page loads, and then it buffers and buffers while it loads the rest of it (like the rewards thingy, and my profile icon, and the options)

I've tried disabling plugins, and nothing works. Also, on Reddit, my RES subreddit list and my never-ending-reddit thing both never work and they tell me to add firefox to the cookie exceptions and while I did, that doesn't work either.

And I don't think my Ryzen 5 or GTX 1070 or 32GB of ram or SSD could have a part in this...

This has never happened to me before but today when watching some videos the player size changes leaving a lot of white space on the sides of the video. It seems to be that videos that would generally have black bars on the side are now showing up in a smaller video player but this is not the case with other browsers. For some reason I am unable to post screenshots. Any help is appreciated.

When I attempt to load two Twitch streams in two different tabs, one in each monitor, only the currently "focused" tab will buffer and stream video. The other will have a perpetual "loading circle" as if it is trying to buffer.

Occasionally the suspended stream will SEEM to resume, and attempt to "catch up" by rapidly skipping any missed frames (usually minutes of content skipped over).

If I "click into" the problem tab and bring it into focus, it will immediately play the stream as normal, while the one that WAS playing properly will quickly begin to encounter the same issue.

If one tab is loaded, but not visible, then the audio from it will play without a problem while the other, fully visible tab will play both audio and video as normal.

This issue has only occurred during the past week. It does not occur while watching simultaneous YouTube videos (making me think it is specific to Twitch) and it does not occur when using Google Chrome (making me think it is specific to Firefox).

Since upgrading to package firefox 61.0.1+build1-0ubuntu0.16.04.1, the pop-up menus are all invisible.

I can click the "hamburger" menu and nothing visibly happens. But then I can click in the area below it and the invisible menu item is activated. The same behavior happens for things like the Pocket button.

I've tried safe mode and refreshing Firefox. The behavior stays the same in both cases. I'm lost as to what to do other than roll back to an older version.

This is strange because it does not happen when using Microsoft Edge as the browser. Trying to upload a small screenshot of the problem, but it may not be happening.

I hate the so-called "Page Preview" *feature* in Firefox; it just gets in the way. I've tried to disable it, using the enable/disable pop-up which appears when the little "gear" icon appears at the bottom, right corner of these things. I've clicked Save and Done, and the *feature* disappears in that browser window ONLY! The saved disable setting isn't carried into subsequent Firefox tabs, nor is it carried over after the browser has been closed (via Quit) and reopened. What's the deal?

In "Cookies and Site Data" I have selected "Accept cookies and site data from web sites" and "Keep Until: Firefox is Closed".

When I close and reopen the browser, cookies are cleared for all sites I have visited (except for pinned tabs, but that's okay with me). Great! However, site data is not cleared. When I click "Manage Data.." I see a list of several sites, all showing no cookies but some number of KB of site data.

How can I make sure that site data is also cleared whenever I close Firefox?

I should note that I have no sites set as exceptions, other than ones set to block cookies altogether.

This is similar to an existing question (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1230363), but in that one the asker is having trouble with cookies, which are working fine for me. I tried applying the suggested fix from there (setting browser.sessionstore.privacy_level to 2) but it didn't make a difference.
