Firefox struggling to load website partially or completely

more options

I have been having issues for multiple weeks now and I am at a point where I am considering switching to a different browser completely.

My issues are very random and I haven't been able to find a link between the problems. Firefox works fine for some websites, loading them quickly and loading everything on the website, but for other websites it just doesn't. Some websites will only partially load, mainly pictures/thumbnails and comments being the problem, sometimes the problem is fixed when I reload, but it usually persists. Youtube is a website that very clearly shows my problem, I have added 2 screenshots of that. Sometimes Firefox just flat out refuses to load anything in a tab, which is only fixed if I open a new tab and try there, or wait insanely long.

I have tried loading websites in different browser, never running into the same problems there. My internet is also not bad enough to have problems loading. I have tried deleting cookies and cache, turning tracking protection on or off, making a new Firefox profile, starting in safe mode, refreshing firefox and reinstalling firefox, but none have solved the issues.

I hope somebody can help!

that is boggling and probably another clue to the issue you are having. i have attached a pic so that you can be double sure you have no option like this.

there is another possibility that seems to be unpredictable. it pertains to the profiles.

i am perceiving (but have not confirmed) that people are losing functionality because the wrong profile is loading up).

double check yours.

there are 2 ways to access the profile manager. the easiest is clicking on windows start button and entering into the search or run field:

firefox.exe -P

hello aiden,

have you tried tweaking the hardware acceleration feature? I think there is also some cache you can maximize next to it.

open your FF options and scroll down for the feature above.

I have read about that being a problem but do not personally have the option to change anything regarding hardware acceleration in the options, that button simply isn't there for some reason

Either it is magic or something with the profiles did actually solve it. I looked around a bit, hit some buttons and I have not yet seen the issues again. Thanks dude

you're welcome.

it seems that an issue with the "profiles" might also be affecting others as well.

the question is, "why" ?
