Hi to all!
I'm having issues watching videos on YouTube with Firefox.
I think the problem is related to hardware acceleration: how can I enable it of Firefox?
I heard that to do this it is necessary edit the .profile file in the home directory and add the line export MOZ_ACCELERATED=1 MOZ_WEBRENDER=1.
Is it correct?
And how can I do this modification?
P.S.: I can't install Nvidia drivers because doing this cause Ubuntu freezing on boot. However I think enabling hardware acceleration will fix all problems.

To enable hardware acceleration in Firefox you need to to go to Firefox > Tools > Options > Performance and under Performance check the box 'Use hardware acceleration when available'.
