YouTube ESC ?

When you load a youtube channel VIDEO list section with a list of content,
you get the spinning beach ball it may take a while to load,
once loaded, lets say 30 seconds guess late - again with the spinner,
it seems to be loading the time stamps for all the content.

I don't mind waiting but sometimes I would like to cancel (ESC key)
and stop loading but it does not have any effect.

most other sites it works and youtube is really annoying.

is this something that can be fixed with about:config ?
