How to solve the Auto HD feature that does not work on YouTube?

When you open a YouTube video you see a spinning loading bar or the play and pause always every second. Then mostly this issue is caused by another YouTube browser extension you are using together with Turn Off the Lights. To test what browser extension creates this conflict, disable the extension one by one (except Turn Off the Lights). And try to remove also your cookies and cache files.
