Here are some crash reports, first one being a tab crash and the other a hard crash while trying to play Youtube videos.

I Believe it has to do with audio, the crashes are not limited to video, but they also occur when playing any sort of audio.

Make sure your ffmpeg and libav files are current. see screenshot

You should also download and run a copy of Firefox from a folder. You will have your distro version and mozilla version to compare when you have issues.

Done both, still crashes, either the tab or it does the whole browser.
