YouTube Buffer Issue

Hello,

I have some problems with YouTube buffering, if I'm watching a video and I try, for example, to go back like 2 mins ago BUT sometimes even 5 seconds, the player most of the time have to re-download the video (something I just watched).
It is even worse if I just watched the whole video and I try to watch it again, Firefox has to download the whole video again.

Sometimes if I just let the video buffering it happens that it lose all the buffer and have to start again.

Another thing is that Firefox only buffer a little part of the video and then stop. I have to play the video and when it get closer to that part, at that moment Firefox start to download again.

So, It's kind of annoying because my Internet isn't really good to wait re-buffering again and again.

I this video you can see it better (in every try I just press F5, I don't change anything)

Sorry to say this but this is a real fucked up video because I get the 
same with Firefox, Palemoon and Google chrome.

Can you include a link to the original video?

wesponki please let us have the address of an affected video.

<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kuRNOudoWmk> is my example screen recording of playback of your video, with a Konsole window obscuring everything except the playback controls because (no offence) the wild visuals do not help to communicate the problem.

For useful troubleshooting, you should please use Firefox to visit about:support then copy the raw data and share it via (for example) <https://pastebin.mozilla.org/>. (There's occasional attention to YouTube and other AV-oriented issues in one of the chat rooms for Firefox.) Thanks.
