Hello there to anyone who can help me with this problem that I'm having right now. Yesterday while watching and going through the videos on youtube, while watching a video, it suddenly started to lag and not move as smoothly much as before when I have on a higher quality like in 1080p 60fps or 720p60fps.

This has happen to me a couple times before when I couldn't find a way to fix it like when my my laptop was acting stupid and was resetting itself and showing a blue screen when it happen and had someone help me take it to the store and have it fixed and the reset my laptop or something and had to go redownload Firefox and I think the problem stopped working.


Yesterday and today I tried searching and looking up how to fix this and find answers that tell me to go to the about:config and change somethings to false or true whatever and it still has this problem. I hope changing it to whatever doesn't mess it up anything even more.

I thought I had to go update Windows or something since recently a couple of times the youtube videos get stuttery and not move as smoothly at times. I can't remember much this one but I either just close Firefox to hopefully that it goes back to normal or I have to update Windows to restart my laptop and it works and it goes back to normal.

But this time when I did all that and I try to update Windows from my laptop it was doing what it does updating installing or downloading yesterday. The problem is still there and the videos on youtube are still stuttering. And I try to see if there were more things to update there was nothing there and says its up to date.

I linked a video that has a 60fps option on a another browser Microsoft Edge to see if it works from there and video when putting it on 60fps works fine there. So this must be a Firefox problem or something.

So if anyone can help me with this problem. Please tell if there's anything else I can do to get these videos on youtube to work on Firefox in 60fps and hopefully can try to easily fix this and hope its nothing complicated to do. Or if there is a bug or something that's making these videos stuttering and everything please try to fix this problem that's going with me right now. Cause i don't want to have to deal with problem I had before again forever and/or if its permanent.

Hopefully maybe the next update for Firefox might fix this problem I have from these youtube videos, but I don't know. Whenever an update for Firefox happens sometimes, the videos on youtube start to stutter and not move as smoothly with putting it on 60fps and have this problem again.

Thank you if anyone has the time to look at this and hopefully someone can get me the answer to finally fix these videos that are freezing stuttering and stuff there.

Every now and then my firefox does not respond when I click on any links on any webpage. It only works when I clear the browsing histories and cookies for last hour. This happens like every 15-30 minutes and is very annoying that I have to keep clear off the history.

How to target / change Firefox's main content pane?

I would like to target the whole of the main content pane in Firefox in order to overlay a visual filter on top of it.

Although websites can be altered with scripts and Firefox offers colour options in its preferences, these are imperfect workarounds that only target specific elements of the websites. Instead, I would like to overlay a translucent filter over the main content pane itself that would allow me to control the appearance (dimness, saturation, contrast) of the entire main content pane rather than individual elements of a website.

How would I do that? Which files, which code snippets?

Please tell me, in as few words as possible, how to disable update notifications. I thought Windows was bad, but they're not constant annoyance.

If Firefox would just stop closing discussion threads, and maybe, just once, answer a question helpfully, community would be able to help each other. Thanks, ML

This has been been going on for a long time, with each update another site no longer works properly with Firefox. So I switch to Chrome and carry on, there being little point in complaining. Of late it seems that so many sites no longer work that at the point of giving up on Firefox. I haven't kept a log of problem sites as I I'm usually trying to get something done and I don't have the time to dig into it.

Try this one https://www.buydisplay.com/ and see if it works for you. For me the menus open then close before I can click on them. Works fine in Chrome.

I'm on Win 10 64 bit Firefox90.0.2.

Only plugin is Ghostery. Disabling that doesn't help.

UPDATE (4 AUGUST 2021): Problem solved. Disregard original question below. UPDATED

Yesterday, the websites jwz.org and dnalounge.com (yes, the two websites run by one of Mozilla's conceivers) stopped working on Firefox. They just keep saying "Connection Timed Out", despite every other website loading fine.

I went through all the add-on-disabling and troubleshooting steps emphasised here, but it hasn't solved the problem.

This happens in both Firefox desktop and mobile for Android, but works fine in other browsers. Again, I went through all the steps of disabling add-ons/plug-ins and operating in Troubleshooter mode.

I know how to clear site data for certain websites, but I would like to do the opposite - preserve site data and cookies for specific websites and delete everything else. It's not in options, perhaps there is an addon that would help me achieve this? Or how can I export (make backup) for a website that I could restore back after clearing everything?

I am sat in front of a PC for most of my day. Firefox spends most of its time minimised while I use document and video applications. On average the Primary password login box will activate over everything I am doing frequently - by frequently I mean 2-3 times an hour or more. It is annoying and nonsensical. What am I doing wrong or is this simply a flaw in firefox? In my imagination at least it makes sense for it to ask me for a password when I want to use a password restricted domain.

I have a blog on Blogger and periodically post videos. Sometimes, the wrong video is in a post--by that I mean that the video for Post A shows up in Post B, etc! If I click on a specific post, rather than the blog's main page, the correct video shows up. When I check the html code in Blogger the correct video is identified.

Any ideas on how to fix this?
