Well, I did test it with Gnome Web (Epiphany) and there the problem didn't happen...

Hi and thanks. I just wanted to come to this question again to give the same workaround. But I see it has already been given. Well, in that case I can confirm that the workaround works :-)

Hi there. I recently installed Fedora 24 from scratch. It replaced my Fedora 23 installation and I wanted a fresh start. In fedora 24 I notice an issue with playing video in Firefox from Youtube or Vimeo (and others?) in full screen mode. Playing un-maximized is no problem, but when I maximize the clip the video playback will freeze. Music/audio continues to play. Also, moving my mouse will make the video play further, in sync with the audio that kept op playing. As long as I move my mouse, the video continues. When I stop moving it the picture freezes. I do not have this problem when running the same clips from Gnome Web(Epiphany). This also happens when I run Firefox in save mode. Also I tried disabling hardware acceleration in Firefox (Preferences > Advanced > Use hardware acceleration when available).

Searching Google (or Duckduckgo :-) ) yields no results. I run Fedora 24 on a Lenovo Thinkpad L450 which has a Intel Corporation HD Graphics 5500 according to lspci .

Any ideas what could cause this?

Thanks in advance, Rolf
