Slow theme load and number of processes

I upgraded to Firefox 68.4.1, not because I wanted to (v60 was working perfectly for me). Netflix in their never ending quest to break people's access changed the minimum requirement to v65.

Of course, the upgrade broke things. I've managed to get everything working except for my theme. I'm using a theme called earth from space. When I start firefox I see the blank top section of the browser for up to 2 seconds before the them loads. On 56, 57 and 60 which are the last 3 versions I used, the theme loaded so fast I never saw the underlying browser.

I tried a couple of different themes but they are still slow to load.

I've also been experimenting with various performance settings in trying to solve this; Hardware acceleration on/off. Content process limit; Tried 1 - 8. Mind you, 1-8 still runs 5 processes @ ~ 500mb RAM when I have only one tab with my homepage open (I have a server here where my home page comes from. It's plain HTML and nothing else).

Any ideas on why the theme is loading so slowly and why setting performance settings always results in 5 processes?

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.

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.

I use ad-blocking addons AdBlocker Ultimate, UBlock Origin and Element Blocker. Works OK and I usually block everything that bothers me -- except for websites using the same template as The Federalist Papers (Image below). I can block the first few elements that make up the frame but you can see from the posted image that's as far as I get. The frame will go black, but that;s as far as I get and the frame always reverts to what you see in the posted image. That frame loading is a resource hog and I would like to kill it. It just won't go away ! Have tried all the blocking options -- "Block similar elements" etc, but zero luck. The frames appear to use unique identifiers that are different for every page load. On other sites I have defeated similar strategies by "Block similar elements", but not on The Federalist Papers. I think it is important we solve this before other sites catch onto it. Ideas ?

I just download Firefox 72.0.1 (64-bit) on a new computer. It automatically included ublock origin 1.24.2 There are many sites where you actually want pop ups (bank statements, downloads, etc.) On my other computers with Firefox, ublock shows a bar at the top of the browser and gives me the option to say- No pop up, allow once only, or always allow for this site. I didn't have to change any settings to have this happen. However, on this newly downloaded version it doesn't do that and it's very frustrating and cumbersome to use. Basically, I have to know that the site wants to pop up a new screen, turn off ublock, and then remember to turn it back on. I have looked all through the ublock and firefox settings to figure out how to do this and can't see where to make this bar show. Very frustrating! Any tips for fixing this? Or, other, better pop up blockers to use?

Update to FF72.01 Running userChrome to keep Tabs on bottom

1...Tabs appear larger and the text for the titles is sitting below the page 2...Close Tab X appears right after any text, 3...if Multiple tabs open, Close Tab X doesn't appear on some Tabs as well as Titles

Should be a quick fix right?, with the amount of people wanting tabs on bottom, a simple check box should be made available to do this, if the user wants

I adjusted the userChrome.css as per some of the answers posed to similar questions, but no change present
