Firefox weird behaviour on google websites

Firefox lately has weird connection issues to google related websites (eg. google search, google keep, youtube). 1. Google search takes noticeably slower time. Sometimes it will just hang and need to refresh multiple times. 2. Sometimes, links from google search are not working at the first click/try. 3. Google keep does not load at all, requires multiple refreshes to load it successfully. 4. YouTube is the easiest to replicate the problem. The thumbnails loads significantly slower. I just cant get it load extra content by scrolling down, just keep showing the loading sign.

Tried: 1. clear cache and cookies. 2. restart firefox and PC. 3. restart router. 4. flushed windows dns. 5. no proxy.

FYI, chrome works well so i don't think it is a network issue but a browser specific issue.

Chosen solution

Problem somehow solved. An add-on for youtube broken in 83.0. Disabling it fixes it. Somehow it affects other google websites, making them much slower. disabling it just suddenly speeds up everything.
