    Good to see. It makes a good amount of difference to the overall experience.

    Hmm... Now they enabled VP9 & media source support combination. This has some annoying side effects: much higher CPU usage when watching youtube videos because hardware acceleration is out of the question. Weird... considering that media.mediasource.webm.enabled is set to false and defaults to that.

    Developer notes don't mention anything about this. Though apparently they did enable it...

    Just noticed that Firefox now rewrites Flash youtube video embeds to HTML5. There's one problem though, it doesn't add the allow fullscreen attribute so I still may have to rely on bookmarklet.

    Did a full CTR and Firefox reset, I can't get it back to the way I had it before 47 came along. I've tried every setting and I'm just going to have to settle with something close for now. The few pixel gap is still at the top of the screen, but at least with squared tabs v2 I can still click to top of the screen and select the tab I'm looking for. Hopefully CTR will do an update sometime here to enable what I'm looking for.

    EDIT - meant to quote CrazY_Milojko's post but I'm apparently too tired to do it right.

    Anybody else with a 980Ti getting nasty tearing and some stutters in Firefox? I have smooth scrolling on and hardware accel off and these issues are both on the forums and in Youtube videos.

    My last few AMD cards would BSOD with hardware accel on in my browser. Is it safe to use that setting on a 980 class card or do they have the BSOS issues as well? Any help would be appreciated since it is tough to watch IMSA races with all the tearing.

    Why have you got HW/A disabled?

    Ah, from the old AMD flash bug, yea it's safe to enable it, plus a lot of things are now using HTML5 anyway, never had any issues with HW/A with the 980

    Yeah, that's why I'm still apprehensive about it. Also posted about it over in the 365.19 driver thread and Asiju also said that he had zero issues with it, so I turned it on (had to reboot, not just restart FF) but then it was perfectly smooth. I'm now just crossing my fingers for no BSODS.

    My first NV card in over a decade, so many thanks for the help guys. :nerd:

    I know the feeling, I still get a knot in my stomach when I hit the 3DMark11 Physics test, because my old Phenom II 965 OC would always crash, every single time, at that test

    Never ever has with this 8350, and I've had this for years, but still every time I reach that test, I get that weird feeling lol

    Say: I understand plug-ins are going away, and "soon;" What I don't hear is what's replacing them.

    Since plug-ins seem key to Firefox security, I guy could get nervous over the lack of news …

    Support for NPAPI plugins is going to be dropped by the end of 2016. Not sure why do you think plugins are key to Firefox security because (signed) add-ons are the ones related with Firefox security and dropping support for those wont happen anytime soon.

    Was 360 degree youtube video supported in firefox? A few days ago such videos appeared as if you're watching VR with two distorted circles and today morning it works properly with panning on the latest dev build. Just wondering if it has anything to do with bad extensions or whatever.
