stuttering audio in firefox

Asked by Andrew Crome on 2019-02-01

This seems to be an ongoing problem I have Ubuntu 18.10 on an Acer Aspire XC-603 with Firefox 65.0. When I play a video with audio there is a slight stutter in the audio. Its very random, so I can never know when this is going to happen, it also happens on Chrome so I don't believe it has anything to do with the browser. I do have some bad sectors on my hard drive could this be the problem ? but on hind sight it does not appear to happen on downloaded audio just what i listen to on a web page.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks all

If you use a non-compoziting session like xfce (install xfce4, log off and log in to the XFCE session) is it better?

I have no idea what xfce is

It's a desktop environment. Very light. If you run:

sudo apt-get install xfce4

Log off and log into the XFCE session is it better
