Mozilla firefox will not speed up using Bitchute or youtube.

Asked by Steven Roberts on 2021-03-25

Firefox doesn't have a restore to orginial and will not speed up video on any video player like Youtube or Bitchute. When clicking the gear and selecting speed it changes display but infact nothing changes. Tryed to set Chromium, Brave, or Dissenter and they all work fine in this detail. Tryed to change default browser but all attempts fail. Under settings , preferred applications I changed to Dissenter or Brave but nothing changes. The browser programs have an option to make default, changed it there and still nothing changed. Tryed restart after changes and still the default browser is still Firefox. Can I uninstall firefox? It seems to be part of Ubuntu. It is up to date.

Yes you can remove Firefox. My suggestion is if you remove Firefox use the Ubuntu Software Center, remove the Snap Package it's self. Activities -> Type: ubuntu software -> Click on the Installed tab -> Scroll down to Firefox -> Uninstall

Firefox was not listed in folder of installed software. That is why I thought it was part of Ubuntu18.04. What I did though was turn off add- ons. The default browser Firefox now speeds up on the video site I chose. I did not find any add-ons in the preferrences turned on. I am a bit confused. problem solved for now. I am off of windows and the spy system. The more I use Ubuntu the more natural it becomes. I do miss the many programs I have on windows, so I reboot to windows when they are needed.

I figured out how to uninstall Firefox. Go to software, This is the catalog list of software to install, pick featured communication and news. Scroll down to firefox and I found it with a green check that indicates installed. Click on the software and it will go to install/uninstall page. It can be uninstalled there.
