    After a couple days of use, the videos on sites like Fox News stop playing correctly. They start out okay for a couple of seconds but then switch to a view that looks like they're advancing one frame at a time about one every couple of seconds. Rebooting my system corrects the problem but only for a couple of days. I searched for this problem on GTG and see a lot of results recommending the use of something called "Windows repair tool". Is this safe to use? Is it effective?
    If anyone else can recommend an alternative procedure, I'd sure like to hear from them.

Try using another browser on fox new videos, and try disabling add blocker if you have one.

Sorry for the late reply. I updated Firefox to the latest version, 92.0.1 and since then this problem has gone away. I just wanted to take my time before I posted that the problem seems to be solved.
