While i love Firefox from the bottom of my heart i still cant believe that Chromium does a better job at youtube videos. I mean that in firefox the moving objects in youtube stutter few seconds apart. Chromium movement is butter smooth and both are running 60fps video. This is mind blowing.
And scrolling is butter smooth on chromium too and on firefox it lags sometimes.
Well i guess this is a reason for me to use firefox-canary aur package.
From this last sentence you should know who wrote the rant.

    Have you force-enabled hardware acceleration in Firefox? If not that might be the issue. Mozilla is still not keen in enabling it be default on Linux.

    @WhAtEvErYoUmEaN Any idea how can i enable that ?
  • 1
    @Haxk20 set layers.acceleration.force-enabled and layers.force-active to true in about: config
    You can then check if it's working by looking in about:support or just by running the video again :)

    @Haxk20 layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled might also be needed.
    Sorry, just scrambling stuff together.

    @WhAtEvErYoUmEaN Wait forgot to enable the second comment you said. Will try that

    @WhAtEvErYoUmEaN But still no. Kind of sad tho. Will check on live usb with the same video to see if its my system or fucking firefox.

    @WhAtEvErYoUmEaN Thats fucked up. Firefox i believed in you my friend. But no its not my system. Its the actual firefox. Im now really fucking mad. Will really try firefox-nightly. I think it enabled wayland compositor too or something like that. Will see if its fixes it on X and on wayland

    @Haxk20 are you running Wayland?
  • 0
    @WhAtEvErYoUmEaN Yes most of the time. But not this time. Watched the video on Xorg.

    @toXel NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Proud AMD user.

    @Haxk20 I was asking because I always have this with my Nvidia card and Arch Linux. There are some workarounds in the wiki for screen tearing. But I don't know if they are also for AMD.

    Videos on a Company owned website runs smother on their own browser how shocking
    If I remember correctly I read somewhere that google actively trying using some html tags to slows ff on purpose

    Issue fixed by using firefox-nightly. I just tried it for fun and it really fixed it. AMAZING

    @Ma30h yeah right. I still have a spoofed user agent only for YouTube to get the old design
  • 1
    @WhAtEvErYoUmEaN I love the new design. I dont like what they are doing tho with the website. Kind of crazy. But hey its fixed now in firefox 66 so yeah. Hurayyyy
  • 1
    I have the same problem for around 6 months. Yes, I keep my FF updated all the time. I will try the nightly version out.
  • 1
    @-ANGRY-CLIENT- well ? Im sure you didnt reply because you are watching videos without tearing right ?
  • 1
    @Haxk20 wait the new design doesnt hurt you? Just because of the new design Im using youtube even less.. The inconsistencies everywhere triggers my OCD

    There was an article recently, Google is on purpose sabotaging Firefox and Edge performance on both Gmail, YouTube and other sites.
  • 1
    @DanijelH Fixed for me as you can read above. Dont worry lawsuit will come their way and they will have to remove it.
  • 2
    @Haxk20 There's nothing to sue. They are changing their sites in a way to make other browsers sluggish. One of the examples was putting some kind of overlay over some div and that killed the Edge frame rate drastically. What I noticed is that Google inbox on Firefox was very slow and even unresponsive sometimes but on Chrome was just fine. I blamed Angular but after reading that I know it probably isn't.

    @rantalicious and chrome is the new ie... When people will wake up from 90s and understand, will be too late

    @WhAtEvErYoUmEaN there's an easier method of changing the "pref" cookie to show old design.
  • 0
    @irene Eh. You can set the user agent per site in about:config. It doesn't get more easy than that.

    @WhAtEvErYoUmEaN didn't know that.

    My problem with YT and browsers is that only Chrome supports HDR on YT but only edge uses the video decode GPU workload while Chrome and Firefox use 3D. I have to turn resolution down to 1440p to watch HDR. 4K HDR kills fps because 3D not video decode.

    I think it's because Google pushes their own webm codec to Chrome and Firefox but not edge. There's no webm hardware decode so 3D gets used on C&FF but h.264 gets hardware decode on Edge

    @svgPhoenix h264 is just much much better in every way then vp9 but somehow google cant understand that and still defaults to vp9 on chrome and firefox which is not good at all.
  • 1
    @Haxk20 if only I could get HDR and h. 264
  • 2
    @Haxk20 only problem if i not mistaken that's h264 isnot free like vp9. Second problems still if i not mistaken bp9 is from google, of course they push this one

    Also when watching YouTube videos on my MacBook and/or Ubuntu laptop, the processor heats up like crazy while the video is playing (..in Firefox)
  • 1
    @dontbeevil yeah h.264 is patented
