So i own an Android Phone and i use DuckDuckGo search engine on PC. I just got this adversting from duck asking me to install their extension on android. So why is this important, well obviously they directly tell me they know i own an android phone. Otherwise they would have sayd it this way; extension for mobile phones now available, or duckduckgo now available for iphones. The only other possibility would be if this is a new feature that is in general displayed to everyone, but i dont beleve this is the case because an iphone owner wouldnt care about an android extension. This is wired, is it not?

When I watch a video on twitch or sometimes on youtube, after a while the computer heats up a lot and the fan starts spinning faster than usual. This only happens to me on Firefox and rarely on Chrome (on safari no). It happens on the MacBook Air 2018

I noticed, probably after the recent browser update, most videos will lag in full screen mode. The problem does not occur in Chrome, and when playing a video without full-screen.

For example. I'm watching a lecture and the teacher is going back and forth. During that he will freeze and lag, the audio works fine, than it continues. I also noticed that the effect can easily be caused by rewinding back for a few seconds.

Not sure if this is a my laptop, youtub's or the firefox problem.

The 'chosen solution' ("Blur>Settings>Tracker blocking: ON -> OFF", which does work) and closure of the thread does not mention the potentially serious consequences of just turning off the Blur protection. In particular, whether the latest Firefox (72.0.1 (64-bit) of January 8, 2020), with its 'enhanced built-in security' provides any of that protection without preventing the video play. I don't know how to find that info hidden in Firefox, and Blur is not clear either.

This problem has been happening for a long time. I've tried suggestions everywhere I've seen, my latest was from this site, suggesting to go into about:config > dom.storage.next_gen and toggle setttings to 'False', but nothing changed. Is there a fix or would it be better to use a different web browser?

I don't sign in to youtube a lot to leave comments on videos, so unsure when this started. Maybe with v 71? Sometime in Nov/Dec '19 I would guess.

If you click the sign in box on the youtube home page, nothing happens. Do not get a popup for user/pw as expected. No error message.

I thought it was a script blocker setting or ad blocker setting so I temporarily disabled those but it didn't matter. I read about clearing cookies and adding exceptions for accounts.google and accounts.youtube but that did not help either.

I CAN sign into google though from the google home page. These use the same credentials. So, its something with the youtube site.

Ideas?

Thanks.

I rarely update Firefox because something always breaks. Today I upgraded from v60 to v72.0.1 - and something broke

I'll probably get the names of these things wrong, but with my older version, I typed the url that I am looking for in the "address bar" and everything worked great.

But now with v72, when I start typing in the address bar, I get a big blue bar at the top of the page with a little google icon in it that says "search with google". The characters that I type in the address bar are echoed in the blue bar that has appeared.

In Options / Search I have:

     the radio button selected for "use the address bar for search and navigation"
     google is my default, and oniy search engine
     I have unchecked Provide Search Suggestions
     I have no "one-click search engines" selected
     

I do not want this blue drop down bar. Not ever. How do I get rid of this drop down thing? I also have a new annoying little "Whats New" icon in my tool bar, and I don't see how to get rid of that either?

Thanks
