Do your online videos stagger in Firefox? - You're not alone

Many users find that videos from the net have short staggers when you watch them in Firefox, it's not just you its Firefox, according to this useful Lifehacker article.

Ever since Firefox version 2.0 implemented the session restore function, when you are watching a video on YouTube, you may notice a tiny freeze-up of the video every 10 seconds or so. This happens because the session restore is by default set to save all open tabs every 10 seconds. This is especially noticeable if you happen to have a lot of tabs open at once.

The quick fix for this problem is to increase the time between each of the saves performed by session restore. By opening about:config in your Firefox address bar, then typing browser.sessionstore.interval in the filter box, you'll see a value of 10000, which is in milliseconds. (Meaning your session is saved every 10 seconds.)

Change this to 300000, or every 5 minutes, if you don't have the urgent need for tab restoration. If you feel like being more on the safe side, try increasing it to something a bit lower, say 120000, or every 2 minutes.
