When Browsing Firefox just freezes for ~7-10 seconds and goes unresponsive, this happens especially often when watching youtube videos in the Background, opening a new tab or closing a tab. This happens close to every 10 minutes and it is really annoying, I have tried a lot of the things i read on here, for example:

generate a new places.sqlite, disable Hardware Accelleration, I have both Refreshed Firefox and Re-Installed it. I have updated my Graphics Card Driver. I have done a Windows Disk Cleanup. I have Reinstalled Adobe Flash. I made sure to Disable Proxys

Hi, I would suggest doing a uninstall and complete install of your Video Card Drivers : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Drivers released on the 26th

I notice a lot of it's files in the Windows Repository :

info on Drivers : u'unavailable = bad disabled = bad

Pretty much your whole card is disabled.
