Poor YouTube HTML5 video performance in Firefox - fine in IE

I have a quite low end system set up, so I'm not expecting miracles from it, but there seems to be some problems playing Youtube videos on Firefox.

If I load a video on Internet Explorer, it will play fine, even on 1080p with CPU usage of about 20%. Firefox often exhibits problems playing videos.

If I launch Firefox immediately from signing in, the videos will play fine. If I navigate to another video, there will usually be dropped frames and high CPU usage.

I understand that Internet Explorer will use the h.264 codec which is GPU accelerated whilst FF will use a more CPU intense task, but that doesn't really explain why sometimes the videos will play fine and others, it won't.

I have tried on a completely clean install of Firefox, so it will unlikely be extensions, profiles or add-ons. I have then changed the timing of the sessions saving and disabled smooth scrolling as advised elsewhere, with no success.

All help gratefully received.

Since upgrading to Windows 10, when downloading a video from youtube or any other site, video works but there is no audio. I have updated all the extensions, restarted in safe mode, made sure quicktime, realplayer, flash were enabled and can't get any sound. Opera and Edge work fine. What to do other than switching to Opera?

Ever since the HTML5 player has taken over Youtube, I've had problems with it perma-freezing my computer as soon as any window was opened. Until recently I got around that by setting media.windows-media-foundation.enabled to false, forcing Youtube to use the Flash player. Lately, though, it's somehow gone back to the HTML5 player with 360p resolution only, so I went digging through the config file again in search of solutions. That's when I found two settings I hadn't noticed before, media.hardware-video-decoding.enabled (which I found true) and media.hardware-video-decoding.failed (which I also found true, though I hadn't touched it before). Re-enabling windows-media-foundation caused the hard-freezes to reoccur, but I discovered that by setting media.hardware-video-decoding.enabled to false I was able to leave the windows-media-foundation option true, and I can now use Youtube's HTML5 player in all resolutions. I conclude from this that the media.hardware-video-decoding.failed setting is bugged somehow, since it didn't seem to prevent the freezes.

For the past few months or so, Firefox has become completely unusable for me. About every five minutes or so, the browser freezes, and I have to kill the process in order to re-launch it. I've tried clean uninstall/reinstall, removing all add-ons, etc. Nothing seems to work. I've installed it on 4 of my computers, and it freezes on all of them (Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 7 Professional, and Windows 10).

Has anybody had any luck fixing the instability, or am I just stuck with Chrome?

I have spent literally hundreds of hours over the past year and a half or so trying to figure out why Firefox and Adobe FlashPlayer cannot coexist peacefully. The latest issue that I have found has to do with Firefox refusing or unable to use the "sandbox" technology that every other browser apparently uses. I occasionally use Google's Chrome browser and have begun exploring Microsoft's new Edge since I updated my OS to Win10 about a week ago. Neither platform has any problem whatsoever with Adobe FlashPlayer content. I have been a very dedicated and contented FireFox user for at least the past five years except for this problem which has become unendurable since my Win10 “upgrade.” With Win8.1, I completely booted all traces of Adobe FlashPlayer off my computer and simply ignored content that depended on it. This does not seem to work since my “upgrade.” Now, every single site I access that has any Adobe Flash dependent content in it brings my entire FireFox browser to a screeching halt for approximately a minute. I frequently end up using the old three finger salute to end the grid block that has become standard operating procedure with my current use of FireFox. I am brought to a point where I have to consider abandoning FireFox completely until this “disconnect” is at last addressed and permanently resolved by Mozilla FireFox. I have tried all the "safe mode" fixes. I have updated every updateable parameter imaginable. I appeal to anyone in the community who has a workable fix for this problem as a last resort before I move my online activities to another browser. I will respond quickly to anyone who offers help and needs me to try something to fix this. Thank you for any assistance with this longtime problem.

Im building a new webpage with video background. The problem is that Firefox is the only browser that have problem with html5 autoplaying. If page was loaded atleast one time the video is working correclty, starts right after the page load automatically but.. if page is loaded for the first time in most cases the video in background doesn't start and show something like TV's snow.

Facts: - I don't think its code issue, atleast not 'video' tag (tried many configurations thinking it might ), - I'm also sure its not problem with video - tried few videos, - tried all formats - it happens with all of them: mp4, wemb, ogg, All at the same time and individually, - it's not problem with my PC - been trying on windows, mac and linux, - Its not plugin - i don't use any with FF.

Check it out here: http://strona5.nanit.webd.pl Just do it in private session and close window after every load so you'll see that its lottery.

Regards.

When playing video from a website I frequent, the size of the video is a lot smaller than what the website intended. You can see the black window where the video size is supposed to fill. I have tried just about everything to fix it. I don`t know what it could be. But, I think it has to do with the settings on my Windows 10 computer, because I do not have the video problem from the same website on my Vista PC. I have a nvidia 980ti graphics card and a 4k monitor capable of 3840x 2160 resolution.

Well, I tried to upload a screen shot of the problem, but it just sits there and buffers.

This complaint is in regard to your arbitrary blocking of Adobe Flash Player for Windows XP & Vista. Both OS systems still work effectively on older PC's. My old HP DC5100SSF runs at 3.0 ghz faster than many duo core pc's. Adobe discontinued any Flash update for XP and Vista as well as Google Chrome. Chrome still plays all Adobe Flash and You Tube content without complaint. You are forcing me to go to Google Chrome. If they change I will go to Linux.

Mozilla products are great but not accommodating the older users is not acceptable. DO YOU HAVE ANY PLANS TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.

Firefox crashes everytime you visit http://liveonsat.com/quickindex.html using a Asus desktop with Windows 10 64b or a HP-laptop with Windows 10 64b. - Last versions of Firefox and Shockwave. - Security Mode Adobe flash Player turned off. - Hardware accelarations turned off - latest display drivers, last updates from W10 done.

Using "Task Manager" I detect two versions running of "Adobe Flash Player 23.0 r0 (32 bits)" . One of them uses 3,9 Mb of memory. The other counts up till aproximatly 1.2 Gb.... First scrolling turns slow then Firefox is hanging... On the laptop the memory seems to be full at 700 Mb. Then I get the warning of the Shock Wave Player and later a warning of a script that's still running.

Other browsers use "Adobe Flash Player Utility" or none (Internal flashplayer?) and don't have the problem. In attach a screensave of "Task Manager".

The flashplayer is located where you see the soccer results. I inluded the last part of the "console". There seem to be several problems. (playerLocation is undefined ?) What more can be done?

The problem stops immediately after I close the tab that has facebook on it.

I have searched everywhere and haven't found someone with the exact same problem, even though some where a little similar.
