Lately I refreshed Firefox so I can boost it's performance cause it was running just a little bit slower than usual. Since than YouTube does not remember my selected resolution. Every time I close the tab, in the new tab it will have a much worse resolution and I did not have a problem until now. I am a system administrator and I'm currently learning programming as well, so I tried a lot of things to try to overcome this problem. The only extensions I have is Bitwarden, uBlock Origin, Cookie AutoDelete. And yes, youtube.com and *.google.com IS added to cookie AutoDelete. But even without it it's not working.

I have provided the Troubleshooting Information from about:support: Click Here for Troubleshooting Info

I also know that there are extensions like YouTube HD or Enhancer for YouTube what would solve this problem, but I would like to keep my extensions as minimal as possible.

Thank you!

    [X] "Clear history when Firefox closes" -> Settings

Thank you for your answer. I have found the problem. In Cookie AutoDelete there is an option called "Other Browsing Data Cleanup Options". I had to disable every one of those options. I tough it didn't matter because YouTube was already an exclusion for all of them.
