h.264 videos that played in Firefox 34 won't play in Firefox 35.0

We host a ton of h.264 videos in the mp4 container displayed through JW Player. We had zero problems with Firefox 34 and earlier playing these videos, the video is H.264 and the audio is AAC, the whole thing is around 500 kbit/s.

They play fine on Firefox 34, Chrome and IE but after updating to Firefox 35.0 we get an error: "Error loading media: File could not be played".

We have found a fix to get them to work in the about:config, switching "media.fragmented-mp4.enabled" to false OR switching "media.fragmented-mp4.exposed" to false will allow our videos to play. Single file mp4's will also begin to download where before we would get a "Video can't be played because the file is corrupt."

Alternatively for Mac users if they just set media.apple.mp4.enabled to False it also works fine.

Non h.264 mp4 videos will play fine.

Here is a playlist that won't play: http://media.vineyardinstitute.org/other/vi_announcement/firefox-test.html Here is the single video file: http://media.vineyardinstitute.org/other/vi_announcement/05_kingdom_theology.mp4

Is there anything I can change on either the playlist or the video files to get this to work? Why would the h.264 files that worked in Firefox 34 NOT work in 35? I will not be able to re-encode all of the videos, it would take me months. Is this a bug with Firefox?

Also I have tried this in safe mode, tried with every plugin deactivated, I have uninstalled Flash and the videos would not play as well as reinstalling a new version of Flash and a fresh copy of Firefox 35.0

Any help would be much appreciated, we are currently directing all of our users away from Firefox till we get this resolved.

Thanks,

Kyle

Jw player has usurped my regular player and is giving me annoying ads multiple times during the video. Facebook page is gone and is replaced by a generic facebook sign-up page. Generally lots of little tics and lags. My computer is less than a year old and has been running fine until a couple of days ago when I noticed on a putlocker site the JW Player logo appeared and the video started jumping, lagging and showed the ads. There seems to be a lot of fixes when a google search is done. Most of them seem to be clones of each other that offer vague fixes, registry changes (that are out of my knowledge level) and then download fixes at a price. I don't trust any of these sites. I was not able to find any reference to jw player in the Mozilla plug ins, extensions lists or in my Windows 10 program uninstall list. Help. Thank you in advance.
