Prior to Firefox version 57.0 (64-bit), I was able to play videos from YouTube or any sites that has a video embedded on the webpage.
After Firefox updated to version 57.0, I am no longer able to play videos. There is video and audio but the video is displaying green images (see attached file or https://i.imgur.com/axYi0jX.jpg). The videos from YouTube, CNN, Fox, etc are all playing fine on Microsoft Internet Explorer except for Firefox.
It looks like something in version 57.0 has changed. The previous version plays videos fine.

Up until the firefox update everything was going fine so I know it isnt my drivers, especially since i keep them up to date for gaming.
However, after the update yesterday I can no longer watch videos on any website, be it youtube or elsewhere, without getting an extremely offensive to the eyes neon green and purple screen. I know this isnt just my computer as I can watch videos saved to my computer or on other browsers with no issue, but firefox is my browser of choice as i've had issues with others such as google chrome not allowing me to download things, so i'd really prefer if there was a fix for this beyond switching to google. For now I have two browsers open, chrome and firefox, for normal internet use and videos as firefox can no longer do both. This is way, way more frustration than should be coming from an "improvement" to your browser, I dont even know why the hell there /was/ an update if all it was going to do was cause issues.
In the screenshot the video is green and purple as described when before the update it was just a black screen lyric video. It's worse for videos with more going on like people moving around, but the update's glitch has made it and other videos totally unwatchable for me as I cant stand the neon. I do not know how to fix this, i've tried disabling acceleration on flash, updating my drivers which did nothing as they were already up to date, etc. I dont know if i'm going to have to switch to something like safari in an attempt to find a browser that actually works for more than a year before updates destroy it's functionality, because this is ridiculous, I came to firefox because chrome let me down and now firefox has too.
