    I updated to the FCU and my nvidia drivers and now when I watch youtube videos, Firefox freezes for 5 seconds before loading the video...

    Anyone else have this problem?

    YouTube can use HTML5 video in supported browsers. Firefox should use the HTML5 in preference to Flash, but will revert to Flash if for some reason HTML5 doesn't work. Perhaps it is this that is happening and takes 5 second to complete. You can check you browser's HTML5 capabilities here:

    If you are using a lot of addons you might want to try restarting firefox without addons and re-test the issue.

    My browser is using html5 video. The freeze happens before it loads the html5 video.

    Found this reddit post with the same problem. So im not the only one...
    Intermittent freezes with YouTube in 56.0.1 : firefox

    Not sure if this problem is from Firefox, the FCU, or the new 388.00 nvidia drivers. Never had this problem before updating...

    On my end, viewing videos using html5 or Flash work fine. I cant find any issue. But I give you some ideas of things you can try. For one, open about:config, change the value of "security.sandbox.content.level" to 2 or 1, if needed to 0. If that dont work, you could try disabling Multiprocess (I do that). In about:config, search for "browser.tabs.remote.autostart" and change the value to false. If none of that works, and you are using the 64 bits version of the browser, uninstall it and reinstall the 32 bits bersion. I am using the 32 bits version. Mozilla is trying to push users using the 32 bits version to migrate to 64 bits but there are ways to keep that from happening.

    So after doing some searching i found that a lot of people are experiencing lag problems with adblock, so i uninstalled it and im trying some new adblockers instead.. will give it some time and come back with the results. If anyone have a solution for the rest of the problems please let me know.

    interesting points on add ons, thanks. I may try a virgin install without adblock, what is the best alternative?

    Why is 64 version not a good option?

    I'm currently testing ublock. For some reason, adblock is making firefox laggy for a lot of users. I have also had the annoying spontaniouis freezing when playing videos.
