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?

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.

This is actually a rather entertaining issue really. So, what is happening as you can see in the screenshot I shared that Firefox is using a rather flamboyant font I'm not familiar with actually. This seems to happen exclusively within text-boxes on forums where you have control over the font used. This text box, for instance, does not have the effect.

    I have had this happen on a few sites now, and have nailed it down specifically at this point.  It's always a text box, and only those which allow you to change the font characteristics and style.  Without the ability to change font, it uses the fonts from my settings.  Yet, weirdly any time that I get a text box with options?  Same garish font rears its ugly head!  lol.

I am notified an update is ready to download and I click. Firefox than goes unstable. Hour glass blinking and jumping around. To stop it I must restart the computer. After restarting, I must go to test compatibility. After running that it will run fine with the new update. This started after 72.0 came out.

I open FF (happens in Safe mode too), and after a couple minutes of running it stops responding to input, but tabs on live websites continue to update content as expected. Then I use the task bar , right click and try to close, the confirmation box pops up but acts like it's stuck in the background, clicking on anything FF does nothing even though it's still running (usually). I've disabled all add-ons, and run in safe mode, same behavior. It acts like it's waiting for input from a process (thread) running in the background and I just can't get to it. Task Manager does not offer the option to bring each thread to the foreground to inspect. Patched to the latest version.

Any Ideas?
