It's probably from a recent update (I also read here - that something was changed with regard to YouTube). I have it opened in a tab - most of the time; and it froze Pale Moon many times. I think that's the only website with a new problem.

It is because of the new Youtube Polymer design.
You can use the old user agent for YT to use the old design until Youtube switches it off in some months.
Yes, I still use a 64 bit capable Pentium 4 670 processor with Pale Moon. It is located at my grandfather's house and runs Lubuntu 18.04 x64. It was my main system until 2018, when I got a Pentium D system that got replaced by a Ryzen 2700 in 2019.
Google reCaptcha annoys me like a blowfly.
