Firefox tab freezes when watching online videos.

Posted

2 Updates ago Firefox was fine now Firefox's tab with video in it crashes. Here is what is happening:

1. Open a website and start streaming a video. 2. I also play World of tanks on my second monitor. 3. After sometime Firefox's Tab where video is playing freezes and the only thing to do is to close it. BUT all other tabs are ok and responsive. I have updated Flash player, but I don't need it to watch videos where I am watching them.

This problem started to occur since about 2 updates ago, I never had such problem before. I tried watching videos on different sites, in Safe Mode, I refreshed the Firefox, I re-installed the Firefox, I updated/uninstalled Adobe Flash, I disabled the Hardware Acceleration, Firefox still freezes. Same problem is happening with Chrome and MS Edge, but for some reason OPERA works fine.

Please help me to troubleshoot this problem.

Thank you.

I also play World of tanks . . . .

Start the streaming, but leave the browser alone. Is the problem still there?

I don't stream, I just play and watch movies on the second monitor. I tried just having the game idle in the background (minimized) and was just watching a video, the tab still froze. Opera works fine. I am not sure what the problem is.
