On Windows 10, when I open any youtube video in a tab, the mouse start to lag (freeze for 1 seconds, then works for 10 seconds, then again freeze for 1 second, then again works for 10 seconds and so on). I have already tried to follow the suggestions reported here https://support.mozilla.org/it/questions/1189187 and here https://support.mozilla.org/it/questions/1189187, but the problem still remain.

What can I do to solve the problem?

PC Configuration: - Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8550U CPU @ 1.80GHz, 1992 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s) - OS Name: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro - Installed Physical Memory (RAM): 16.0 GB

- Firefox version: (Quantum) 66.0.2 (64 bit)

And it isn't actually buffering at all. It will load the comments and all the recommended videos, but then just show the spinning buffer wheel yet not use any internet bandwidth at all. I need to reload the page 1-3 times to get it to actually start playing.

This is on MacOS 10.14.3, and a 300Mbit internet connection. The only addons installed are uBlock Origin and User-Agent Switcher.

This never happens in Safari or Chrome, but I don't want to use those because Firefox is the only browser I can stomach on this earth. The rest are all sub-par.

Also... it does this on all my Macs.

I typed in about: cache > under “disk” click on List Cache Entries > then on the page I see Key Data size Fetch count Last Modifed Expires Pinning, under “Expires” some say “Expired Immediately” witch I want to cache it anyway.

A YouTube video was taken down and I still want to see, so I have the URL to the YouTube video and when I type it into Google, Google has a cache of the video page and when I move the slider in the video, I can see the video, however I does not play, it is more of just still images, so I am thinking that if I tell FireFox to ignore “no-cache” header that YouTube has, maybe I can download the video as it it still on YouTube's server.

I looked to see where FireFox stores all files and it seems noting it stored, not even the still images or videos that I have watched before.

The Error message "Firefox has stopped working" pops up 5 times as soon as a youtube starts in the background. After i clicked on "ok" the error message disappeares and the video starts playing. sometimes it even happens when the video starts in the foreground. But then only 1 time. I reinstalled firefox. Deleted all Mozilla folders, no add-ons, i deactived the flash protected mode, i updated my Graficcard driver. No Crashreport available.

Chrome works 'out of the box'. If you can't ensure that Firefox plays Youtube videos 'out of the box' then your user base will continue to decrease.

When I try to watch a You Tube video Firefox locks up or freezes. Then I have to open up Task Manager to get it to shut down. Very annoying. It doesn't matter whether I click from a link to go to You Tube or go there directly and try to find a video. Firefox locks up either way. I can use other browsers but Firefox is my browser of choice and I always forget to use another browser until it's too late. How can I fix this?

At 1:30 am, my Firefox tab crashed while I was watching YouTube. Recovering the tab was fruitless as it continued to crash, and moments later all the tabs had crashed and couldn't be recovered. Then Firefox itself crashed, and now every time I try to run it it crashes - even if started in Safe Mode by means of Shift+Click. I was initially sure that one of the add-ons I installed yesterday were the cause. These add-ons were Auto Tab Discard, Tree Style Tab, OneTab and Tabliss (the latter two were disabled at the time of the crash).

After the crash, I went into the /Extensions folder and removed all of these recently installed add-ons, but it makes no difference. Besides that, the documentation states that if the crash persists on Safe Mode the extensions can't be the issue.

For completeness anyway, here are the rest of the add-ons in my extensions directory, courtesy of CMD's dir /b:

...as well as two more in the "staged" subfolder, YouTube AutoReplay and MultipleTab. Note that it's highly unlikely any of the remaining extensions here are the cause of the problem, as I've run these all for several months with no real problems.

I really don't want to have to resort to a Firefox refresh that strips all of my add-ons and customisations, so I'd like to exhaust all options before I get there - especially since, based on similar results from the net, it doesn't even look definitive that a Refresh would actually work to do the job.

It seems that the initial crash at 1:30 AM was submitted, with a Crash ID of bp-af627874-cb1c-4c73-b3f8-4c9000190127. However, there are quite a few .DMP and .EXTRA files in the \Crash Reports\pending folder, all of them between 1:30 and 1:32 AM.

Thanks, I'd really appreciate some help getting Firefox up and running again as it contains my work process and I need it.

Until today the options for stopping videos auto playing worked OK, suddenly they don't work at all. I had changed all the settings in about:config - please see screen shot attached - a couple of weeks ago when they suddenly started auto playing and that solved the issue, but now I am back to square one. Even when I have ensured that the autoplay option is changed in the preferences section they are still auto-playing. Any suggestions please as this is driving me crazy!

Thanks in advance for your help. It is much appreciated.

I've recently had to do a clean install of windows 10 and since then I cannot autoplay in youtube. I have unblocked adblocker, I've set autoplay to "on," I've downloaded and reinstalled firefox, installed flash again, but none of that seems to work. I'm having the same problem with South-Park Studios as well; there it simply just doesn't play anything even before my reinstall of windows. Both work in other browsers fine. Only Firefox doesn't work.
