Hi, I just bought a Surface Go. It's got quite modest specs, Pentium dual core and 4 gb of ram.

However, I'm noticing playback of video, especially Youtube, is incredibly choppy, with lost frames and cuts. It's unwatchable. There is no such problem using Chrome or Edge.

What could be the cause of this? I notice there's some scaling weirdness in some menus in Firefox, as by default the surface scales apps to 150%, could this be a cause?

Thanks

Firefox 73.0.1 and fairly consistant Youtube playback back screen with error message (Kubuntu 19.10 & Windows 10)

When I click on a Youtube video to watch, I usually (but not quite always) get an error message and a black screen where the video should be. Happens in Linux... and in Windows 10. All systems have Kubuntu 19.10 (the HTPC does not have Windows 10), and that's the more pressing OS for a fix in (at least it is for me). A simple F5 press (refresh) usually clears the problem and the video will play, but occasionally it needs a 2nd hit. A couple times the error message and black video do get replaced by the video if I let it sit for a short period (??).

I have an assortment of hardware combinations: 8th Gen Intel based notebook (i5-8250U with iGPU and MX150), an all AMD based gaming system (Ryzen 3600 + RX Vega 56), and my current HTPC (Ryzen 1600 with GT 1030). Does not occur with any other streaming website I use (Primevideo, Crave, Netflix, & Twitch).

The Win10 installs are fully up to date and have the newest MS Feature Media Pack. Kubuntu 19.10 installs are also fully up to date. I do make use of Oibaf's Mesa PPA for more updated Mesa Packages then whats in the *buntu repos (on the notebook and gaming PC, not the HTPC).

I have tried safe mode, I have tried disabling Recommended Performance Settings, disabled plugins, deleted the cache, and performed a browser refresh (because I do like to perform some warranty voiding tweaks like disabling Push notifications), etc, etc, etc.

Youtube audio quality worse on Firefox

I'm working at a music company and we have noticed that audio quality for videos on Youtube is significantly worse in Firefox than Chrome and even the new Chromium based Edge browsers. The audio sounds like it is lower bit-rate with a total loss in low frequencies. You can literally play the same video in one browser, stop it, switch to the other, and immediately notice the difference.

Is this a Firefox caused issue, or do the Chromium based browsers support an audio transport that Firefox does not? I'd hate to think that Google is just purposely using lower bit-rates on browsers other than theirs for no technical reason.

How to Reproduce 1) Open Firefox to a youtube music video on VEMO channel (professional official music videos) 2) Open Chrome to the same URL/Video 3) Play the video on one browser at a time, switching back and forth to hear the difference.

I have Lenovo & Like using the Back & Forward Arrows to serve as a 3rd Dimension for Tab Browsing set for 50 pages per tab maximum & have about 100 Tabs active or semi-active for easy access to things. I use Private Browsing for 1 window to avoid cluttering my Youtube Viewing History & as extra protection against cookies. I like to keep Firefox active for an entire week usually so that I don't have to worry about the 1 Private Browsing Window losing the Youtube order & potential other stuff. The past week I have noticed that Tabs Crash Randomly & often Firefox itself completely crashes when using Youtube. Does anyone know how to fix this without clearing my cache (that kills the history of each tab) I'm tired of the crashes.

I have a problem with FF73 on my Windows 8 tablet. So in FF72 and all previous versions double tapping on YouTube videos switched between fullscreen and windowed modes of said videos, yet with FF73 for some reason double tapping now does fast forward/fast backwards 10 seconds actions depending on where I tap on the screen, which is something I understand is an expected behaviour on Android and other mobile oriented operating systems. I hate it and want double tap to go to it's old functionality. Going back to FF72 does fix the problem, so the problem is not on YouTube's end. Also going back to the previous version of FF creates a whole set of annoying problems, so it's obviously not optimal. I wonder if there is some hidden config setting introduced in FF73 that tells YouTube I'm on a tablet specifically, which was not previously shared? Any ideas?

I've done a lot of trial and error. Firefox has no issue until I log into my google account, usually for youtube. The moment I do it starts a memory leak that slowly builds. Around 1.6GB is when it starts having problems that affect my computer. Restarting firefox solves this until I log back into google. I've tested for days not logging in with zero memory build up until I log in and it immediately starts to climb.

When I got the last 2 or 3 updates of firefox, there were some websites I could not fully access. One of them is accounts google which also means not my youtube account either. All this in non-private browsing. I tried disabling all extensions, I tried in safe mode, and nothing changed. Also some other methods which did not work. And when I get to accounts google to sign in, I click on the next button and nothing happens. So, I tried private browsing and was able to sign-in to youtube and accounts google. I've tried all types of combinations on my content blocking but to no good result. I need a solution, please.

PLEASE HELP BEFORE I GO INSANE. Firefox is great with a youtube video download add-on, recently Firefox was asking me to restart with the latest Firefox version 67.01, My youtube downloader was working fine so I put the Firefox restart off till another day and continued for around a week downloading my favourite drummer vids, all was TickaDeeBoo until I decided to go for the latest Firefox 67.01 restart, now my video downloading days are over. I have worked my way through the list of add-on's only to find none of them do the trick. Every time I choose a downloader add-on I click on MP4 360 as it has the audio too, other options are with no audio, no good to anyone. Once clicked, my download destination appears, I click save to store the video in my downloads, in the top right hand corner next to View History & Saved Bookmarks etc is the downward pointing download confirmation arrow which lights up immediately but sadly shows as 0 MegaBytes. Where as when the add-on was working that same downloading arrow would only light up once it had truely downloaded the chosen video. Its really funny you know because about 2months ago I was using an add-on that would only bring up downloading options (MP3,MP4 etc) if you avoided clicking actually on the word "Download", In other words clicking not on the word but away from the word but still inside the box, how weird is that, but it worked everytime, sadly no more. I am a Drummer who follows the lives of my favourite world class Drummers, its great when an add-on works, sound & vision. But when its not working all I can do is record the audio and make do with that. I have been saving in my youtube play list all the video's I've not been able to download in the hope that some day soon that will all change for the better. I sincerely would be over the moon to have this feature back even if its just for a short while (until it all goes pair shaped again) TO THOSE IN THE COMMUNITY, ANY IDEAS ??? Kind Regards, Jonathan.

I saw some suggestions on here saying delete cookies so I did and now it full screens, however the video is partway down the screen and above it is an empty white box. I've tried restarting in safe mode and deleting cookies again and neither of those worked. i'm having no issues in other browsers so I have no idea what could be causing it.
