    Youtube/Flash 1080p Windowed Runs Slow


    Issue: Youtube/Flash 1080p Windowed has slow video playback in Firefox/Waterfox & Opera, but in fullscreen it runs absolutely smooth.

    However on IE and Chrome a 1080p video runs just fine windowed.

    Help.

    Apologies, I seem to have solved this issue by disabling Hardware Acceleration in Flash settings.
