I wonder if that is my comment:7:ticket:23769. I guess we could find this out if you could try vanilla Firefox 52.4.0esr and 52.4.1esr: the video playing should crash in the former but not in the latter. Bundles are here: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/52.4.0esr/ and here: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/52.4.1esr/ Could you try those?

The webpage crashes on 52.4.0 but it does not crash on 52.4.1

#23833 is a duplicate.

We'll fix that issue in a new release next week. In the meantime one workaround could be to disable content sandboxing by setting security.sandbox.content.level to 0.

This will be in the upcoming 7.0.7 and 7.5a6 which are based on Firefox 52.4.1esr.
