I know about the pause option in the context menu, but the question is simply, why??? And the pause option is greyed out for me in the context menu, and yeah I've looked at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/980832 and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/981703 but the suggestions don't solve it for me. My question is, why just remove some functionality that a lot of users are used to having? Why do you want to make people use an add-on for what seems to be one of the simplest and most fundamental functionality of a web browser? What do you hope to accomplish?

Hi eric765, Thank you for your question, however this does not seem like something that can be supported. Changes are made in each version and some are better than others.

Did you try Safe Mode?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window

Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.
