When I attempt to load two Twitch streams in two different tabs, one in each monitor, only the currently "focused" tab will buffer and stream video. The other will have a perpetual "loading circle" as if it is trying to buffer.

Occasionally the suspended stream will SEEM to resume, and attempt to "catch up" by rapidly skipping any missed frames (usually minutes of content skipped over).

If I "click into" the problem tab and bring it into focus, it will immediately play the stream as normal, while the one that WAS playing properly will quickly begin to encounter the same issue.

If one tab is loaded, but not visible, then the audio from it will play without a problem while the other, fully visible tab will play both audio and video as normal.

This issue has only occurred during the past week. It does not occur while watching simultaneous YouTube videos (making me think it is specific to Twitch) and it does not occur when using Google Chrome (making me think it is specific to Firefox).
