Why is there sometimes a number at the beginning of a page name in a tab?

For the past several days, sometimes a tab will have a number in parentheses at the beginning of it's name. Usually it is "(1)", but right now I have one that is "(4)". What does this number mean, and why does it do this. And is there any way for me to make it stop? Right now it is only doing it to pages at YouTube, but I believe it has done it to others, and it doesn't do it to every YouTube page. Reloading the page often makes the number go away.

I would like to use Firefox for 64-bit computing and visited the download page. While this offers Firefox "in your language" the only option I can see is US English, and that is not my language. Is such a download available somewhere? If not I shall have to make do with Chrome.

Firefox isn't letting me move my tabs or bookmarks around. I'd google the solution but every single page linking to someone else who has had the problem on this site seems to be page not found (which is insanely annoying).

with all the links and icons for the xp, vista, 8, windows. I tried to click on it but it would disappear every time I got off the link from the Firefox up grade. My question is why can't fire fox do something for us folks to regain our recycle bin and our old icon page back? I sure would like to have recycle page back

Firefox scrolling and video laggy when maximized at 4K on KDE Plasma Archlinux

I'm currently using KDE Plasma on Archlinux and Firefox windows are very laggy when maximized. I have a 4K screen and running Firefox at full 4K causes scrolling to be very choppy and makes YouTube almost unresponsive. If I make the window smaller (about a quarter of the screen or the size of typical 1080p), it speeds up and works normally. I've tried the nightly build, Icecat, and Waterfox and none of them have made any difference.

I use a AMD Radeon R9 Fury X GPU and have the latest version of xf86-video-amdgpu installed and have hardware acceleration enabled in Firefox settings.

EDIT: I've now tried Firefox in Cinnamon Desktop as well as KDE Plasma and they are both equally laggy.

Ok, this has been happening for over a year now. I have tried resetting Firefox, reinstalling it, running it 100% clean without any add-ons and whatsoever. None of these fixed my issue. Whenever I find myself using Firefox for more than a day or so, without closing it, the problems start to occur. First hours of the problem occurring, it starts to freeze from time to time for 1-2 secs, after that it freezes 1-2 times for 10+ secs and finally it just hangs until I force close it. I think it is caused by videos mostly, because whenever the crash happens, I'm browsing a website with a video. Around 80% of the final unending hang happens whenever I play a video. Whenever I go to force-close the browser, I always find it at 30+ CPU usage. Since I am unable to create a Firefox log or some sort of detailed information, I am uploading an image and list (https://pastebin.com/KpVAYjhD) of firefox handles (because GetHandleVerifier function seemed most suspicious and could be related) that I think might help you with debugging the issue.

A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, open the script in the debugger, or let the script continue.

Script: https://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jQuery/jquery-1.9.1.min.js:5

Whether it's this exact message or not it is not uncommon (once every couple of hours or so) to have Firefox stop working and show this message. It works far more 'clunky' (slow, cryptic, unpredictable, unreliable) since about three updates ago.
