Hi there, It was few weeks this is happened to me. Before then everything was great. First i thought i may have internet connection error but it wasnt. When i start to play video over youtube mozilla not responding for 5 to 10 seconds. This is also happends when i want to reward back in video. If i want to open another video from youtube/twitter or any other else in another tab again mozilla stopped working couple of seconds. I tried everything; safe mode, hardware acceleration, unistall/install with older version. None of them is working. Do you have any solution for that?

Is there a reason you are using the prior version of Firefox? I am not criticizing. I use v54 as my default.

Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

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

See if there are updates for your graphics drivers https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration


https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1359657#answer-1463359 and updated to 95.0. . . . I finally found where the plugin "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc." was not updating to the newest version of December 1, 2021. Ver #4.10.2391.0

cor-el; Make sure you have the latest Widevine version. You can toggle DRM off/on to see if that makes Firefox (re)load DRM components.

You can possibly check the XHR requests in the Browser Console if this doesn't work.
