Youtube Choppy With Radeon R9 390 Drivers from AMD (work-around inside)

When Hardware Acceleration is on in Firefox>Options>Advanced, YouTube is on full screen AND on foreground (is focus on windows 10), and drivers supplied from AMD are installed then YouTube video is very choppy with plenty of stuttering. However, if any one of these is different (except for browser/I use Firefox by default/happens on Chrome too), then the stuttering is gone (only tested on windows 10.

 

I have uninstalled Radeon Settings/AMD provided drivers, and now use the ones that come with Windows Update to work around the issue. Another option is to disable hardware acceleration as mentioned above.
