HTML5 loads slowly using Firefox 37.01

Posted

Anyone else noted that in Firefox 37.01 HTML5 loads annoyingly slowly and the loading keeps sticking several times: in FF36 YouTube video of 4 minutes would be loaded in few seconds, in FF37.01 it takes half the videos length before loading fully.

Do you have any problem with other browsers?

See if there are updates for your graphics drivers https://support.mozilla.org/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration

Considering this happens only with the latest version of Firefox and not on the earlier ones?

I'm back to using FF 36.04 and it works fine.
