Firefox locked to power saving mode

Now, this may sound silly and that Firefox should be on power saving to, well, save power. However, Intel has absolutely horrible video acceleration which causes my CPU usage to skyrocket when running 1080p YouTube videos. There are large circuits built into AMD gpus to save power and decode video faster, but AMD won't let me use them!

In Catalyst Control Center, Firefox and many other apps that could benefit from GPU video decoding, like VLC, are locked to Intel power saving mode. Is there any way around these restrictions besides disabling my integrated graphics in the BIOS?
