Hello. I addressed this issue in support of Twitch, and they sent me to you. I have black bars on the sides of the stream when I look at Twitch. In the screenshot you see them. In full screen mode, or on other sites (YouTube), there are no such problems. I tried the techniques described here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1095782, but nothing helped. http://prntscr.com/b9r7at

Now restart Firefox.

Could you give a link to the page you screenshotted? When I poke around on Twitch TV, there is a left sidebar (or left and right sidebar), so I don't think I'm in the right area, or I'm not clicking the correct display options.

Sorry, I forgot that it was for the stream in the screenshot. But this problem on all channels Twitch. Like here https://www.twitch.tv/dotamajorru http://prntscr.com/bbu49a Without the left and right side bar And with them http://prntscr.com/bbu4zq

Okay, what's happening here is, when you are not in full screen mode, and you minimize one or both sidebars the black rectangle behind the video is widened to fill the space and becomes wider than 16:9. Flash does not distort the aspect ratio of the video to fit the box, instead it fits one dimension (height, usually, unless you make the browser window very narrow) and computes the width accordingly, which leaves black margins on both sides.

For what it's worth, I see the identical behavior in Google Chrome when I minimize one or both sidebars.

That's right, I also appear in Google Chrome Do you have any idea what can you do?

I think using full screen is the best workaround. Otherwise, you would need to find a way to increase the height of the black box, which might not be easy.
