15.7.1 Drivers and a lot of broken features in Windows 8.1

AMD Driver Developers do some quality testing before launching new drivers? I think they don't...

 

I spent two days at night figuring how I started experiencing a lot of problems: MP4 and WMV videos not playing, green screen on Firefox while playing videos with Flash Player. Internet Explorer also not working with Flash (black screen) and crashing with HTML5.

 

I wondered if it was related to a codec malfunctioning or something related to recently released Windows Updates... tried a lot of things: reinstalling codecs, adjusting flash player settings, disabling hardware acceleration, looking for settings in about:config, running ccleaner, reading every recent Windows update description... until I reached this thread:

Reverting from 15.7 to 14.12 was the solution.

 

God, please... take your time before launching the first thing you think is Windows 10 Ready...
