You have disabled the AMD crossfire feature in the AMD settings for Firefox correct ?

>Hardware acceleration turned on while in "Options" is off.
I do not understand this. Please explain what do you mean with this.

I apologize for my bad English.

When hardware acceleration is enabled, turning my second video card to 100%. 

After the update of Firefox 33.0.1 is my second video card 100% working but Firefox options "Use hardware acceleration when available" off. 

I turn off hardware acceleration always.

Add firefox.exe to 3D settings of AMD Catalyst turn Crossfire off for Firefox.

In firefox 33.0 this problem was not.

My english is also not the best

1) you enable hardware acceleration in Firefox
2) you disable Crossfire in your AMD settings
3) both Video cards are used with Firefox33.0.1 but only one in Firefox33.0 ?

Is that correct ?
btw: Did the Update to 33.0.2 change anything ?

Hardware acceleraton is disabled in Firefox. 
Yet activates Firefox CrossFireX.
I think it has to do with OMTC.

> 2) you disable Crossfire in your AMD settings

Only for Firefox via 3D settings on AMD Catalyst Control Center.
In this way it is temporarily resolved.
If Mozilla has solved can I remove this workaround.

One videocard in Firefox 33.0 or older used. 
As it should be turned off hardware acceleration.

In Firefox 33.0.2 is not yet solved.
I think I should wait for the next Firefox update.
