Activating Firefox hardware acceleration not possible!

Hi there,

I have a 4K monitor and a AMD RX550 running on the amdgpu driver. I tried following the Arch wiki guide to activate hardware acceleration in the browser because my computer is struggling playing videos in full screen resolution. Small videos are okay,

In the second step of the instructions my default Firefox configuration tells me I have "Compositing: WebRender (Software)" activated and following the instructions I need to either set gfx.webrender.all=true or the environment variable MOZ_WEBRENDER=1.

Setting both options results in Firefox crashing and only starting again after completely resetting itself.

I have no idea what the issue here is and will appreciate any help!
