Both bugs are there for me.
Just tested on another two Samsung Gallaxy phones (A5 + Android 6) and (S7 + Android 7).
Firefox 59 on Android: missing videotexture and the skinned meshes don't show up.
On the same devices with Chrome 65 on Android: everything is ok
The same bugs on Firefox 59.0.2 for Android.
(tested on Samsung phones)
Tested with:
Samsung S6 Edge (Android 7.0)
Huawei M3 Lite 10 (Android 7.0)

 - Nightly 61.0a1 (2018-03-21);
 - Release 59.0.2;
 - Beta 60 (60.0b7);

On the phone (Samsung S6 Edge) I am able to reproduce both the black video area and missing actors.

On tablet (Huawei M3 Lite 10) I can only reproduce the black video area issue.
