Intermittently two tabs try to take focus at the same time

I am running Quantum 61.1 x86_64-pc-linux-gnu in Linux Mint 19. Intermittently, and I have yet to determine a common thread, two tabs seem to be competing to for focus. It happens on different web sites, so I cannot even determine if the problem is site related or not. A screenshot will not show anything either because all that happens is I open several tabs and suddenly on tries to take focus and then will switch back to the last focused tab and continue to switch back and forth as though I am clicking on the tab bar to select each tab. If I close one of the "offending" tabs, the problem switches to another until all "offenders" are closed. I am unsure if the problem is Linux related, an Add on, or Firefox because I did not have the issue in Windoze which I abandoned at about the time that Quantum was released. I cannot, yet, reliably cause the issue. (I currently have 8 tabs open and it's working fine)

Can anyone suggest how, or where, to start?

I recently delete my gmail account and switched to another email provider. I tried adding a second email to my Firefox account but it says "Failed to send email". I'm not quite sure how to fix this as I would prefer not to create a new account.

In requesting advise and assistance regarding my Mozilla Firefox YouTube issues I firstly wish to thank everyone who has contributed to my previous cries for help and for all those volunteers contributing to this democratic, corner of the web. Aged 71 my Firefox and its add-ons, are extremely important to my daily life on the web. I thank you all in advance for having helped my journey in this amazing ‘place of minds’. Using a NUC 5I7 with Windows 10 (64bit) with fully updated Firefox I have been prevented from using YouTube on that preferred default browser. Disabling all of my installed add-ons, the YouTube service resumed. It was obvious the absolutely marvelous ‘YouTube enhancement’ add-on and the two ad-blockers were an issue, which up until I’d done a better than average, routine malware virus and junk file clean out (revo uninstaller pro), had not been an issue. Earlier, what I believed was unrelated at the time, I had been prompted to download and install a new version of VLC which I dutifully performed. Unfortunately the new version of VLC did not appear to work on any of my AV files so I used the revo uninstaller to remove all traces of that update before reinstalling my original version of the program. Having reestablished my VLC was back to 100% I decided to do a routine check, cleaning out any other junk that may have cluttered my system. It was then that a popup window advised I download and install a newer version of Mozilla Firefox, just before clicking on the install, I remembered this was a repeat of a previous ‘download and install’ I’d done, days before and a quick search found that version of Firefox in my download folder. Unsure of what might happen I did a backup of the currently installed Firefox settings before clicking install. I now believe these events regarding the VLC and Firefox installations may well have been linked, however I am not sure how and what to do now. I want to enjoy my advert free browsing and the excellent YouTube enhancements with my dark screen Firefox but somewhere along the line my defenses have been breached likely by my own brash stupidity. Has anyone encountered such an intrusion and how do I get back to my original, ‘personally customized Firefox browser’? PS: I note a growing number of others with similar problem. Please see attach screen shots,

When browsing through several open tabs only active one loads and works properly. For example when i am watching twitch stream and open another webpage in new tab and switch to it, twitch stream stops almost immediately. Same happens if i start playing video on youtube and then switch to new tab, video will play preloaded part (light grey part) and will stop there and wont even try to load rest of the video until i select youtube tab again. I never had this problem until few months ago. I was able to open 4-5 twitch streams in highest quality at the same time and all them worked fine. I can still do it in another web-browser but i dont want to switch from firefox. Can someone help me fix this?

Firefox sync won't stop updating my bookmarks even though I cancelled my sync account. It's making a mess of my bookmarks making Firefox worthless to me. It updates anywhere from once a day to once every 1-3 minutes. It is adding back deleted bookmarks and bookmark files. As it stands I'll have to scrap everything I've done in Firefox and switch to some other browser. I would really hate to do that

I keep getting asked to sign into a site called stumble upon. I haven't been there for a long time. That site has moved to a different site and even if I wanted to sign in it get an error message about the site being dangerous and not secure.

I have deleted all of my history but that didn't do the trick.

Thoughts?

    // W3 Schools also (https://www.w3schools.com/jsref/met_audio_play.asp) says

    // Nevertheless:

    // At one of our local library's computers, it worked fine on version
    //   41.16299.547.0 of Edge and version 67.0.3396.99 of Chrome; but not on
    //   version 61.0.1 of Firefox nor on version 11.547.16299.0 of Internet Explorer.

    // I found a Firefox suggestion at:
    //   https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/i-cant-play-audio-remote-desktop-connection
    //   but it did not solve the problem.

I saw something new in YouTube today. When I tried to watch a file (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJVdiGpnH_s) the only resolution I could get was 360p. A video option labeled "Missing options?" brought up a YouTube help page (screenshot attached).

Why is Linux left out of this capability? It can't be because those formats are unsupportable in Linux; Chrome supports them for all of their browsers, including Linux. Why does Firefox discriminate against Linux users?

So I just return to Firefox after a long time. There are things to catch up. When I enter fullscreen for YouTube videos (not the website fullscreen, F11), there is slide down message about YouTube is now in fullscreen and a button to exit fullscreen right away. How to not continue receiving such message? Also, when I exit fullscreen, YouTube re-scale and the animation is quite slow, you can feel the video frame is exiting full-screen and downsizing to smaller frame. Is there an option for me make it enter/exit fullscreen w/o such notice message or animation?
