Recommended Posts

I dont know in which section i should post this matter,but the closest that come in mind is in this part of the forum. If its wrong,please put in in another part.

I just made an upgrade with both processor and grafic card and other stuff  in my pc with Windows 10 os,and i have a screen that supports 4k Vesa certified 600 HDR. The thing i notised is that i can only watch hdr videos from example Youtube in either Edge or Chrome browser. In Firefox i can not reach hdr videos. Is it so that hdr is not supported in Firefox,or can one download som sort of adds on or such in order to make hdr available in Firefox browser?🤔

Hello @sten2:

Although the 03-May-2022 release of Firefox 100.0 gave compatible Macs HDR capability, I have not read of any equivalent capability for Windows® based computers yet. Six+ months is a remarkably long development time with no results. Pity.

BTW, Firefox 107.0.1 does render stunning HDR enhanced video on a capable Mac.

HTH

Did you do a fresh clean install of Windows or did you just change our hardware and put your old hard drive with your old installation of Windows into the new system?

I use Firefox every day and I don't have an issue viewing content in 4K. Do you have a link to a free, public video to check on?

I understand. However,from doing search from at internet,Firefox for Windows does not appears yet to support HDR capability.

Just watched this one from YouTube

COSTA RICA IN 4K 60fps HDR (ULTRA HD)

 

I upgraded my PC with an i7 processor and a graphic card that supports HDR. That is the basic standard for showing materials in HDR at least forWindows. I did not do a fresh clean install of Windows.

 

AddvancedSetup,i think you missunderstand my point. I can play the link you provided with Costa Rica video in  Firefox,but thats without HDR support. If you look closely from the picture you posted it shows 2160p 4K. Thats not the same as 2160p 4k HDR.

If you look at my pictures,then you see what i mean. The first picture is from the same Youtube video in Firefox. There is no shown option for HDR there. When looking at the second picture,its the same Youtube video in Chrome and there one has the option of choosing 4k HDR.

Yes, sorry, my monitor does not support HDR. It is an older 4K model.

It looks like you're correct. Unless there was another update (I've not searched too deep for it) then it looks like at least on Windows and Phones that HDR is not supported in Firefox.

Well,then thats so the case. Strange that Windows does not support HDR in Firefox browser.🤔

Me and appararently many other users would like to see a Firefox version for Windows that supports HDR. Strange why they have not enable that feature yet in current versions. Hopefully we would see it soon.
