On Windows 10, when I open any youtube video in a tab, the mouse start to lag (freeze for 1 seconds, then works for 10 seconds, then again freeze for 1 second, then again works for 10 seconds and so on). I have already tried to follow the suggestions reported here and here, but the problem still remain.

What can I do to solve the problem?

Make sure your mouse software is up to date.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?
