The gpu usage (more specifically the encoding) has crazy spikes which causes frames to drop (a lot of them).
I'm almost sure this only happens with vp9 and so far I've only seen it happen in 1080p and over (1080p60 etc).
The gpu should be more than able to play these. And in the moments it isn't spiking it's only using like 30 to 40% so it is more than able.
Edit 1: It's really strange because I just watched 4k60 videos and 1080p60 videos in both VP9 and AV and they worked just perfect and then I went to a 1080p24 in VP9 and it skips like hell. And then I went back to the previous video and it gets almost 100% skipped frames at 4k60 when just 5 minutes ago it was playing it fine.
So basically I can't successfully reproduce the problem the same way all the time. Maybe you guys have some tools I can use to do more in-depth testing.

When I first load firefox I have been getting the error "Firefox has stopped working for a few years now. Close the program". I do not click the link to close the program I click the "X" at the top right of the popup window. That will initiate a reload of the page. But, the page loads with none of the graphics loading. If I click the refresh button myself my page will load just fine. The only reason I even did an upgrade was because it would not let me load ANY page and kept saying my flash player was out of date and had to be updated. I did update flash but Firefox would still not work. A couple months ago I tried to do an upgrade which crashed. I ended up doing an uninstall and installed the latest version. I lost everything including my profile. After much searching for answers using Google Chrome I finally found out how to retrieve a copy of my old profile and help on how to install it. I did an upgrade this week which I had to do from Google Chrome but at least it worked and I didn't have to lose anything. But, then it would not use flash so I had to again use Google Chrome to get flash to download and install the correct update. You know... all that NPAPI and NPAPI crap because Firefox uses a different version of flash player than Internet Explorer or Google Chrome. I am currently using version 72.0.2 of Firefox. I had installed an update for Flash player before updating Firefox. I had to reinstall the version of Flash that I had just installed. I am now running version 126.96.36.1991. Firefox still stops working and I still have to jump through the hoops of reloading it. I am NOT going to update my Windows 7 Home because I do not want Windows 10. If I try to update my graphics card MS will force me to upgrade Windows. They stopped supporting Windows 7. The only good thing is that now it does not open the library item on boot that even after following instructions to turn off kept loading anyway. All that installing and reinstalling eats up a lot of my metered data allowance so the next time I will probably just uninstall Firefox. I forgot to say that NO I DO NOT OWN A SMART PHONE AND DO NOT PLAN ON GETTING ONE. MY DESKTOP PC WORKS JUST FINE. I DO NOT NEED TO DOWNLOAD AN APP EVERY TIME I WANT TO DO ANYTHING. If using computers for the past 40 years has taught me anything it is all about putting money in someone's pocket and making it easier for thieves to destroy my life. I am sorry that the youth of today are stupid and want things to be easy and do not realize the expense to their very existence. I do not want you to fix anything. I apologize for my attitude. I just needed to vent.

When I have my computer plugged into an external monitor, I want new browser windows to open on the external monitor, but they always open on the computer's monitor. I have gone through the entire process at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems (clearing cache etc., trying safe mode, creating a new profile, refreshing Firefox, reinstalling Firefox) and the problem persists. This happens if I manually select "New Tab," "New Window," or "New Private Window" from the File menu with no existing windows open. It also happens if I use the key commands for any of these menu items. It happens if I use the menu bar on the computer's monitor or the menu bar on the external monitor. Opening a window and dragging it from the computer's monitor to the external monitor does not change anything. I've also tried using Divvy (https://mizage.com/divvy/) to move the browser window between windows with a key command, but after moving it this way nothing changes—new windows continue to open on the computer's monitor. How do I set which monitor Firefox will use for displaying new windows and/or get it to remember my preference?
