Confirming this. Can't reproduce the bug with hardware compositing disabled
(layers.acceleration.force-enabled = false).

I sometimes have much longer freezes.

Do you still need this info?

> Can you provide an URL of a video which reproduces the problem?

I did bisect using the following video:

> Does it only happen if the video is (not) in fullscreen?

Both fullscreen and non-fullscreen.

> How long after starting playback does it start freezing?

It's random. Maybe ~10 seconds.

The whole firefox window. Not sure about the whole desktop - when I move mouse
to gnome shell panel firefox unfreezes.
