This isn't a fix, but have you tried using the skip forward, instead of ff?

I've set the default skip forward to 30s and skip back to 5s and I can
usually get to the end of the commercial break quicker this way than
by using fastforward.

Even better, in the UK, many programmes seem to have commercial breaks
at exactly 4 minutes, so pressing '4' followed by skip forward goes
instantly to the end of the commercial.
