Firefox freezes when I switch video on Youtube

Hi, i got a problem with Firefox 86.0 after last update. Firefox freezes when I switch video, skip ads or go to main page when any video plays on Youtube. But there's interesting thing: if i pause video first and then switch to another, all right. But if i don't pause, firefox freezes with 100% CPU load. I have never seen that problem before.

I tried these steps, but it wasn't helpful:

1. Disable recommended perfomance settings and hardware acceleration. 2. Clear cookie, cache and startup cache. 3. Safe mode with disabled plugins. 4. Refresh Firefox. 5. Full uninstall Firefox and install again.

I don't know what else i can try to solve this problem... Please, help!

Today i got the same problem on the another PC after update Firefox from 85.0.2 to 86.0. By the way, previous version worked fine. So I guess version 86.0 is broken. How i can restore 85.0.2?
