I am getting terrible frame rates while trying to stream videos on YouTube, particularly HD and/or fullscreen ones, while using Firefox on Win8. However, once the video is fully buffered there does not seem to be a problem.
This problem doesn't seem to happen when using IE, so I am suspicious that it has do with Microsoft's security features that apparently limit the functionality of other browsers (if those rumors that I heard are true).
I have already disabled flash's hardware acceleration and running Firefox with dedicated GPU doesn't seem to change anything.
Anyone else having similar issues or know how to fix it?
