I have activated something in about:config that activates "MSE & H.264" on YouTube with the beta channel.

However, I cannot find this setting anymore and firefox crashes every time I try to watch YouTube videos.

For example, just today: bp-67f2f515-4a0b-4659-b504-90de22150207 7-2-2015 13:47 bp-d300a4b6-6a84-4738-8be1-ce5512150207 7-2-2015 13:06 bp-56557335-41c0-4f3f-85a1-2dbef2150207 7-2-2015 12:37

hello Schiavini, try to reset all custom preferences (=shown in bold) in about:config starting with "media.mediasource" to their default value. the type of crash you have according to those crash ids is going to be fixed with the next update to firefox 36 beta 7 in the coming days also...

Hi Philipp, thanks for the fast answer. All the media.mediasource configurations are already with their default. So mp4 is true, webm is false and youtubeonly is true. When is the update expected? And is there a description of what each of these settings actually do?

actually the next beta builds already appear to be on the server - you could try to download and install your language version from

if you continue having problems afterwards, you could switch all media.mediasource.enabled to false in order to generally disable MSE support for the moment...

The crash report flagged these programs;

Firefox Beta v36

quartz.dll = Microsoft

igd10umd32.dll = Intel(R) Graphics Technology

Perform a System File Check to fix corrupted system files

See if there are updates for your graphics drive drivers

FredMcD, when modules are in a crash report are highlighted this doesn't mean that they have anything to do with the crash in question or that they are corrupted necessarily.
