Firefox needs restart after a certain period of time in order to see webcam

I use Firefox as my default browser, and I am an enrolled online student. I have an external logitech camera that works fine on Chrome and Safari (I'm on Mac) but Firefox requires a complete close and reopen after a few hours. It stops accessing the video camera accurately, although the indicator light on the camera still comes on.

This happens regardless of the platform (i.e. Google Meet, Zoom, chat sites).

Does anyone know what's going on? Or what settings can be tweaked? A computer running windows ten is having the same issue.
