Firefox Keeps crashing! Fresh install of Windows 10 N and Firefox.

I can load youtube.com but soon as I click on a video it crashes the tab. Even in safemode. I have newest drivers for my nvidea 1050x video card. My adobe flash and windows update are all up to date.

I use Firefox on all of my devices. On a new Windows Surface Laptop 3 (Ryzen 5 3580U, 8GB RAM) the speed is unbearable. Competitor product is fine as a workaround. Firefox in safe mode works great. Behaviour is observed on a brand new install (no extensions, etc.). Firefox is updated to latest version (74.0). Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Edit 1: - Confirmed that no performance decrease when not using an external dock (Dell Universal Dock). - Performance decrease most notable when displaying Firefox on 4K monitor connected to DP in dock. Performance better when displaying on 1080P monitor connected through HDMI (but still not as smooth as no Dock). - Dock or monitor has no impact on Firefox behaviour with other laptops.

Edit 2 - Resolved: Disabling Hardware Acceleration in 'Firefox Options > General' resolved this issue.

How to play videos (for example .mp4 file) in browser instead of having a dialog asking me where to download it ?

When I'm trying to play a video on a site (file is .mp4), it will ask me what to do with the file i.e. Save it or Open it with VLC instead of just playing it in the browser. I can see thumbnail of the video so I don't think it's a plugin problem (like with the Flash plugin on this page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-common-audio-and-video-issues#w_flash-plugin). I just did a clean install of Windows 10 Pro N, updated to 1909 and installed everything fresh (even the Media Feature Pack for Windows 10 N (November 2019). Was previously on Windows 7 with FF and never had this happen to me in 10 years... How to simply play videos in the browser without having to "download" them first and then play them with VLC ? I've searched online for more than 1 hour and even had to register here just to ask this... PLEASE HELP !!!
