I turned off the translator popup via about:config and browser.translations.automaticallyPopup to false. Now translation is gone. How can I keep the option to quickly translate a page in the address bar without having the popup jump in my face each time I open a new tab, forcing me to click it to make it go away? This would be a nice option but an extremely distracting presentation. thanks.

Issues with video buffering on Youtube specific to Firefox browser on PC

Greetings,

for the past few days I've been having issues with running videos on Youtube, specifically, with my current (speed-tested) 560 Mbps internet connection, videos on Youtube will stutter, or altogether stop to buffer, even though a big part of the video is already loaded according to the preload bar. Sometimes the preload bar will also just jump back to the current video time and start loading from there anew, and sometimes it will even stutter back and forth as if it has loaded about 30 seconds, but then the preload bar will jump back and forth 10 or 20 seconds really fast (flickering).

While that is happening with the preload bar, the video will either stutter for a second and continue, or audio will continue normally while video will freeze and then continue a few seconds later (skipping forward so it's in sync with audio) or it will altogether outright stop and start buffering (the circling indicator in the middle of the video) even though sometimes the entire video has already been fully preloaded, and the connection is still going strong.

I have tried reinstalling Chrome and on that browser that issue does not happen. On Firefox I have an Addblocker, but I have tried turning it off and even removing it from Firefox, as I hear there are issues with google allowing addblockers on browsers, but it made no difference.

I have a recording of the issue with and without the addblocker but it is a big file 159 MBs.

I hope you can provide any information on how to resolve this issue, as some videos on Youtube have been unwatchable these past few days. And I really don't want to switch back to Chrome, as I like and support what you are doing with an this independent browser.

Thank you in advance for your reply.

I see no microphone on in the address bar for Firefox. I read that it is supposed to be (standard feature?) on the left side. How do I restore or enable this feature? For good measure, would someone please send me an image (snip& sketch?) of the address bar showing what this looks like. First time posting so I don't even know if one can attach or include images in a reply.

Recently, one website (SF Chronicle) started automatically scrolling to the bottom of the page when I access an article. Occurs on no other sites nor on my other devices - only an my Dell desktop running windows 11 and the most recent version of Firefox.

When I follow a link to read an article I briefly see the heading but then it immediately scrolls down to the bottom of the page and I have to manually scroll back to the top of the page to read the article.

Suddenly almost everytime I load a YouTube video I have to watch 2 - 4 min of ads, sometimes two in a row before the video starts. I no longer have the skip ad button. If I load the same link in Chrome or Edge I don't have this problem. My search engine is Duck Duck Go, but if I go to Google first and then to the video I still have the problem. I also have the Maleware Bytes ad blocker installed. Any suggestions?

Whenever firefox has multiple tabs open and on any single tab youtube is running i find youtube to crash lag and even crack itself by audio playing with struck video. FYI the same issue is not experienced in other browsers like brave for instance . I hope you provide attention to this problem and solve this issue as soon as possible and as I mostly use firefox to browse and use its dev tools.

Hello,

I had a Firefox update last night and I now have version 121. I usually look at a French site so I click on the translate symbol on the toolbar - fine. But this no longer works - the "en" appears but the page is still in French. If I click on Menu then Translate....... just the same. This has only just happened so must be a problem with the new update?

TIA
