The video will pause completely unless you are moving the mouse on firefox 32x.

The video stutters/jitters frequently with the use of Nightly 64x.

Youtube with html5 works fine for me on 37.0a1 (2014-12-09) Win 7, e10s ON.

Please check if the issue occurs using Firefox in safe mode (with your addons disabled):

This happens quite on lot on vimeo.com in my experience.
The video keeps switching between play and pause, sometimes even with buffered content available
