As titled, I would like to switch from Chrome to Firefox, but this is a deal breaker. When I play a Youtube video at 2x, then the audio sounds distorted, almost robotic. Is there a way to fix this? Thanks for the help.

Hi 2001mjp,

The audio sounds you hear is a known bug while playing YouTube videos at higher speeds.

Firefox doesn't pitch correct sped-up or slowed-down HTML5 video (e.g. on Youtube) {link}
