Whenever I try to load a youtube video - either embedded or directly through youtube.com, the tab will crash and present "Gah. Your tab just crashed." The issue does not occur on other video streaming sites, and it does not occur in other browsers. The only plugins I have installed are Adblock Plus and RES - neither of which should affect YouTube.
I am on Firefox 60.0.1 and I was using this version of Firefox without issue. The problem only manifested after installing a new graphics card (AMD Vega 64) - I was previously using integrated graphics (Intel HD 4000). Before installing the new drivers I did remove all display drivers, and I made sure to install the new drivers while disconnected from the internet so Windows 10 wouldn't try to auto-install anything. Other apps/games are functioning as expected with the new graphics card.
Here's what I've done so far:
- cleared cache, cookies
- disabled hardware acceleration in options>performance
- in about:config, set 'browser.tabs.remote.autostart = false' - though this will make the Firefox app crash, not just the tab. I do not have a 'browser.tabs.remote.autostart2' setting
- uninstalled Firefox, cleared %APPDATA%/Firefox, reinstalled Firefox
- repeated the previous steps with the new install of Firefox
Here's my recent crash reports:
