GPU: R9 380X
PSU: cooler master elite 550wts
Same issue here.
It started after I updated video drivers to the last stable release. After seeing the issue I tried the latest recommended drivers (17.11.4)
I tried multiple browsers and the standalone Win10 Netflix app. No change.

Intel Core I5-4670K
The stuttering sounds familiar to the current issue i have right now actually.
My GPU is flickering to a black screen, but before it does, the screen freezes in a second or three, then black screen for 1.5-3 seconds, then back to normal.
Except this isn't based on copyright videos, but whenever my screen updates to a certain threshold.
Right now it's not happening because I used a update driver option to the 'windows basic display driver' and isn't using the AMD drivers.
It's weird that this only started happening today at 6pm, I was playing Grim Dawn and the screen froze with the game still running, then the game crashed and I went on firefox and opened a youtube video and it blacked out, forcing me to reboot. Then it failed to boot the ram 3 times and forced me to configure settings and whatnot.
I'm using a XFX RX 580 though.
There's a off-chance that the hardware has gone wrong somehow, or the drivers got corrupted, even when reinstalled or clean installed.
Or it's a different hardware that's triggering this.
Same Problem here, Happens in Chrome, Firefox, IE, Edge, and the netflix app.
Noticeable frame drops in games while streaming netflix on second monitor, mouse freeze every 2 seconds.

Yup, still having this issue after two weeks. Anybody know how long this issue will take to fix?
Easy fix: Radeon Settings > Display > GPU scaling. Toggle it on or off, it doesn't matter. Just toggling it is a TEMPORARY fix. But the issue comes back.
Harder fix: Roll back to 17.10.1 as andrewszx323 pointed out.
