    Typo: "huge/whiteness/blackness" should say "hue".

    Will the "video quality degradation fixes" stop Youtube from randomly downgrading videos and running "1080p auto" that is really 480 or worse?

      Firefox 96 also simplifies the process of enabling hardware decoding by removing the need to disable the rdd sandbox

        Speaking of WebP - does anyone know how to enable WebP support in Ubuntu 21.10 (kubuntu)? Firefox and such support it because they come with their own built-in WebP libraries. For example - Qt5 doesn't support WebP, but afaik used to.

          Firefox 96 still needs both media.ffmpeg.vaapi.enabled and media.rdd-ffmpeg.enabled, while Firefox 97 will only need media.ffmpeg.vaapi.enabled: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Fir...o_acceleration

              I don't have that issue in Firefox, and I've been using the beta channel for a few months now straight from the Mozilla site. I did have that issue in Falkon, but only after clearing the HTML5 cache.
