Having a Purple, Pink, or Green Overlays When Playing Online Videos With Firefox Browser?

On Tuesday the 14th of November 2017, it was reported to Mozilla via the Mozilla support forum that users are seeing either Purple, Pink or Green Overlays when playing videos on YouTube and other website, by Steve7u.


A member of Mozilla support team replied saying: "Hi, we are currently aware about this on some windows 8 configurations with amd graphics cards and older drivers. please see if there's a more recent graphics driver available for your system at https://support.amd.com/en-us/download and if installing that already solves the playback issue."
He also added that if upgrading the driver does not fix the problem, then there is a workaround on Firefox that can fix it. The workaround is: "enter about:config into the Firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named media.windows-media-foundation.use-nv12-format. double-click it and change its value to false."

But there is good new!!!

With the release of a new version of Mozilla Firefox browser on Wednesday, the 29th of November 2017, (that is, version 57.0.1) Mozilla announced that with the release of this new version, a fix for the "video color distortion issue on YouTube and other video sites with some AMD devices" have been made. Thus you no longer have to tweak you Firefox browser, just upgrade and it will be good.
