When watching a YouTube video, sometimes it freezes. There's nothing I can do to take it into a normal mood. And when I close the defective tab, it plays the audio for some moment. And, the gear icon on the window that changes the resolution doen't seem to work; when I click it nothing happens. These problems are pretty much annoying. Please help! And yes I have cleared the cookies and caches..

Remove History For One Site

Open the History Manager <Control><Shift> H. In the search bar, enter the name of the site. Right-click on one of the listings and select Forget About This Site. This should remove all information, including any passwords / settings.

The freezing issue seems to be gone. But the resolution-changer gear icon is not functioning
