hi
running FF ver. 52.3.0 and win 10 pro and have internet 30Mb download speed

I continuously have problems watching FOX news at http://www.livenewson.com/american/fox- ... l-fnc.html

Every few minutes, a little circle in the middle of the picture starts and the streaming stops

may I kindly ask if there is a solution to this issue please?

kindest thanks, cheers

hi again

I also realized that even my download speed on speed test shows it is at 100% effective, FF has slowed to a crawl.
I keep restarting FF, and it's ok for a short time then slows down again terribly

thanks, cheers

hi once

running FF ver 60.0a1 and win 10 home 1709 and internet 70Mb download speed.

tried your Fox news while also watching a 14 minute PBS SpaceTime video on YouTube and running four Flash streams on http://dash.daytradingradio.com/ at the same time.

kept fox muted - wow they have a Lot of commercials! - it paused and circled 3 times for about 1.5 seconds and then resumed normally. FF running fine with no slowing or need to restart it.

I streamed CNN for a while and it never pauses.

I think the problem is at Fox's end - normally I can run this stuff and almost never get a pause. ... a lot of people streaming it and they traffic shape at their end maybe ... ??

ps - I did notice a big increase in browser performance since Firefox went Quantum!

This live stream http://www.livenewson.com/american/fox- ... l-fnc.html

works fine for me with FF58.0.2 on Mac OS10.13.3 with 100 Mbps download. Actually that stream worked fine in the past when my download speed was 15 Mbps.

FF 61.0 - FF 61b14 - FF 62a - Palemoon 27.8.1 - TB 52.7 - Mac OSX 10.13.5
