Stuttering When Playing Higher Resolution AV1 YouTube Videos

I am experiencing poor performance on YouTube videos using the new AV1 codec. Hardware accelerated decoding is enabled on my AMD gpu, but the performance in Firefox is not as good as it should be. I first noticed the issue when trying to play an 8K video. The stuttering and frame drops at 8K make the video unplayable, but I also noticed that it was happening at 4K as well. At 4K, the stuttering is much less severe, and there are no dropped frames, but it can still ruin the experience of watching the video once I notice it stuttering every few seconds. I know this is an issue with Firefox specifically because the same videos play back much better on edge. There are still a few dropped frames in edge, so I think AMD might need to improve their drivers as well, but the videos are playable on edge whereas in Firefox they're not. I have also found that disabling hardware acceleration in Firefox actually results in the videos playing back much smoother. The cpu decoding is working far better than gpu decoding, but my general understanding of computers tells me this should not be the case.

Please help me figure out why this is happening, and let me know if you need any more information about my system or the issue.

Hey, I seem to have this issue loading Youtube pages.

I'm running the same exact addons on both browsers.

I don't know why it happens but I think it's completely unacceptable for two browsers to behave so differently.

firefox: https://streamable.com/fqu4iy also for some reason the video doesn't autoplay????

Firefox has been my default browser since maybe version 10. Recently I cannot sign in to a frequently used site. It is https://www.kroger.com/signin?redirectUrl=/rx/dashboard . I get the message "We're sorry, an unexpected error occurred. Please try signing in again." I can sign in on Edge and Chrome, both of which I hate. I suspect it has to do with privacy but can't pin down what.

When I use WhatsApp Web, if I play a video someone sent to me or in a group, I can't pause the video. Besides that, when the playback reaches the end, it starts playing the video again (in loop). It happens both when opening the video (normal mode) and when using picture-in-picture mode. I've already tried to run FF in Troubleshoot Mode, to see if the culprit was any of the extensions I have, but no, the problem persists. I've also tested it in other browsers (e.g. Edge) and the problem didn't occur, so it doesn't seem to be something related to the website.

FF version is 105.0.1 64-bit, running on Windows 11. But I already had the same problem with earlier FF versions and on Windows 10.

I ran into an issue with the Alpenglow extension conflicting with the Dark Mode extension.

On version 105.0.1 (It may happen on other versions, it's just that I only tested it on that version.), all of the default themes, ran into defaults where they tend to fallback to the Default Dark Theme, which, while totally usable, is not the theme I wanted. The Alpine Theme was the theme that I tested with first, but it's actually also an issue on the Light theme as well. Both themes tested were official themes that were made by Mozilla, not a third-party.

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJHFBAIHlwI

I’m switching tabs with either: • Ctrl+PgUp • Ctrl+PgDown • Ctrl+Tab • Ctrl+Shift+Tab These skip over tabs that appear in every sidebar vertical addon’s list, but stay hidden from the native tab bar. I don’t recall closing them, but perhaps I did at some point, still, why do they get stuck? • I can select them by clicking so they exist • Sidebery’s active tab style gets applied on all of them • Native tab bar shows no active tab • Normally I hide the native tabs but wanted to see how they match • The tabs are there with the inspector (Browser Toolbox) • Issue happens all the time with a few tabs

Addition: When I tinker with these broken tabs using the inspector they seem to collapse and get closed. They are no longer selectable and if I switch sidebar addon (and back) they are no longer there.

I normally don't use multiple vertical tab bar addons, they are just there to demonstrate the problem. It happens with a single Sidebery as well. In FF settings container tabs I removed the preset containers. This mismatch makes the browser unusable for me. I require working vertical tabs (I come from Vivaldi, wanting to switch).

As the subject suggests, links of the type "youtu.be" (Sample : https://youtu.be/pBI3lc18k8Q) are failing to open in firefox while other browsers can easily redirect it to standard youtube.com hostname. Even firefox android works fine but not on Windows PC.

Many solutions (like modifying browser network settings, turning off proxy, dns over https, about:config changes) didnt work. Even a fresh firefox install fails to open this link type. This needs to be fixed ASAP as most of the youtube links are nowadays shared in this shortened format and such an issue would prevent newcomers to switch to Firefox completely(I am one of them)

Hello. I just wanted to add 8-10px border-radius and a thin 1px border. Just like all chromium browsers already have and even Waterfox did it too.
