Subj. The hardest lags ever. Shorts may switch 30+secs. New videos open slow also.

Very slow. Changing to other windows besides Firefox or changing tabs causes the youtube tab to go blank and render again after a very long time. Video controls start lagging and once my laptop even crashed during a video. Had to hard restart the whole thing. I do have quite a few privacy addons but I have those same onces on Edge browser and it doesn't seem to do this.

I should mention that this does not really happen on my desktop computer. Only the laptop. It's a Vivobook with an integrated GPU so that might be the problem. The thing is: this really does not happen with Edge.

on new versions all is ok.

 

nope is not ...i still have ministutters on youtube 4k

idk what exact ministutters is, but check cpu/gpu loading in performance monitor. also some another processes like default windows antivirus may affect. ministutters is not the problem i was originally posted about.

and if i said that there are no problems - there are no problems for me. dont tell me im wrong cause im not. dont argue with me. create ur own thread and post ur problems there.

Same here too. Youtube become very very laggy. Every video has loadings in them, with a broadband internet. Very disturbing.

Just guessing but it seems to be a buffering issue. I just switch to Edge to watch any HQ vids.

I also met similar issue, it cost >20sec to open a new youtube tab after the last FF update.
I found the youtube cookie size become 1.5GB.
After removed the youtube cookie and clear cache data, this issue was gone.
