Whenever I open a YouTube video, the moment the page has finished loading, Firefox instantly scrolls the page down about a centimeter, hiding a small portion of the video behind YouTube's search/menu column. To resolve this, you have to scroll up everytime you watch a video, which is a major annoyance. I have experienced this thoughout many macOS and Firefox releases, tested it with and without add-ins – it doesn't matter, it always happens.

Is this issue known, and is there a known way to fix it? Otherwise this would be an amazing fix for upcoming releases.

Firefox 62 on macOS 10.13.6

Please try : SAFE MODE

In Firefox Safe mode these changes are effective:

  • all extensions are disabled (about:addons)
  • default theme is used (no persona)
  • userChrome.css and userContent.css are ignored (chrome folder)
  • default toolbar layout is used (file: localstore-safe.rdf)
  • Javascript JIT compilers are disabled (prefs: javascript.options.*jit)
  • hardware acceleration is disabled (Options > Performance > Uncheck to view)
  • plugins are not affected
  • preferences are not affected
