Pale Moon always freezes on Youtube.com

Post by llamatron » 2020-10-04, 10:26

Since yesterday afternoon Youtube.com causes a 100% freeze/unresponsive page with a script error popup on 32-bit linux Palemoon, only workaround I found for anyone that's stuck with it was to do a general.useragent.override.youtube.com in about:config to trick youtube into showing the mobile version of the site. (running on asus eeepc 900 / 32-bit /trinity desktop / q4os)

Considering the terribly underpowered hardware you are on, using the mobile site is probably best anyway.
Intel Celeron M 353 @ 900 MHz and 1GB RAM? Yeah don't expect too much from bloated sites like YouTube that will shove a metric ton of JavaScript your way

Yep, it's not the most powerful beast in the world, but it still works :D
