Youtube video skip/seek bar - causes white loading screen when trying to forward video

The issue i have noticed is when watching any YouTube video and if i decide to skip to a different time in the video it will cause it to go to a white screen, loads for at least 1-10seconds and then starts the video playback ( it can take multiple skips to get this white loading screen to come up ). Some cases the video quality will drop to 720P when i have set it to 1080P. I have attached the screenshot what it looks like as well as the stats for nerds page showing network connectivity stats.

-I thought it was my computer until i tested this with multiple computers as well as on different network connections ( speeds up to 100mbps and even higher download speeds ) -Firefox has been completely uninstalled and reinstalled -tested in troubleshooting mode + no add-ons installed -Same on Private Mode and Normal Mode -updated to version 104.0.1 but i think this fix was for a different YouTube issue -I even downloaded an older version like version 80 or 90 if i remember and still had it happen -Tried using some YouTube extensions like YouTube enhancer but that seems to just allow you to force the video a specific resolution

As mentioned above to try and reproduce this issue, open any YouTube Video and just start skipping the video to random timeframes and see if it gets the white loading screen. I understand that when skipping the video it will start to buffer and this normally takes couple of seconds and starts playing. But with this white loading screen it can take up to 10 seconds to load and then starts playing

Same issue described on Reddit https://old.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/vhbce5/firefox_is_lowering_youtube_video_quality_randomly/

I have been using Firefox for many years. Suddenly I cannot get any sound from videos in Facebook, YouTube or anywhere. The settings in Privacy --> Permissions --> Autoplay are set to "Allow Audio and Video". There is nothing wrong with the computer as I can play videos and sound files on it with no problem. Sound is no problem on Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge. It is just Firefox that after years of use the sound as stopped working. Can anybody help?

I have FF 104.0.1 (64-bit). Windows 7 Pro x64. Acrobat 9 Pro. When I select a pdf in a web search FF ask if I want to save or open in Acrobat. If I select open in Acrobat nothing happens. If I select download it download a 0 byte file that Acrobat says it can't open. I have FF set to "ask" for pdf files. If I set options to open in ff, it does open. Everything worked fine up until about a week ago. I have had a couple of FF updates since then. The pdf files save or open in Acrobat properly if I use Chrome. I have rebooted the pc. Wish I could rollback updates to see if that is causing the issue.

The locale in https://accounts.firefox.com/settings has been set to spanish (not by me!!!), and it seems impossible to change it to english - it is becoming quite annoying.

FYI, all my locale settings on browsers / e-mail clients / computers / etc are - since ages - set to English. I have never set the language to spanish.

So the question is: how can the locale be corrected???

I have "Open previous windows and tabs" checked, and normally all tabs are restored correctly. However, I often have a Youtube video or playlist open, with several videos already in the history for the tab.

Case 1: On restore, the video (single, non-playlist) loses any query parameters that were added (ex: setting a time on the Youtube video so that it will be at the same point upon restore, ex: "&t=2m55s"). These parameters are added by me and the tab is requested WITH the query parameters (enter is pressed) so that the parameters are present on window (Firefox) close for the next session.

Case 2: On restore, the playlist is often set back several (2-5) videos (urls/history entries).

Could be due to an add-on the interacts with Youtube called "Enhancer for Youtube", but I have found no option or issue with Enhancer that has caused this behaviour in other browsers (Chrome).

Of late, when copying and pasting images from Firefox on my Mac into the Apple Messages app, the file pastes as a tiff image, even though the source image is a jpeg, png, or gif, and the message won't send via the SMS/MMS network, which knocks out sending to any non-iMessage recipients.

This occurs when I right click on an image in a webpage, choose "Copy Image", and then paste into the Messages app with a recipient who is a non-iMessage user.

If I right-click, and "Save image as" to the hard-drive, it saves in the correct native image format (jpg, gif or png), and I can drag and drop it from the finder into Messages and it sends just fine.

If I go into the Messages app after it fails, and open the pasted image, it shows it as a tiff file. (See images below).

This issue has occurred before, and was discussed in the following archived threads: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1325884 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1327484

with apparently no solution reached.

It is possible it is related to the following bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1689992

Copying the exact same image file in both Safari and Chrome work as expected. Firefox is the only outlier.

The problem occurs in both safe/troubleshooting mode and regular mode in Firefox.

My main operating environment: Macbook Pro M1 Max(2021) OSX Monterey 12.5.1 Firefox 104.0.1 (64-bit)

The issues does NOT occur on the following platform: iMac - Intel i7 - Late 2012 OSX Mojave 10.14.2 Firefox 103.0.2 (64 bit).

Web Page with sample image location: https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/31/politics/mary-peltola-alaska-house-special-election/index.html

Image in question: https://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/220831172838-01-mary-peltola-exlarge-169.jpg

I don't think it's a bug in the OSX side, because it works as anticipated in two other browsers. This appears to be a Mozilla/Firefox issue.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for any help.
