Firefox will not play any videos for me. This occurs on every website. On youtube for example, the loading circle will be perpetually spinning over the video. I can use the slider to scrub through the video, and a static image will appear, but not play. The Youtube video will play no problem in Edge browser.

This is on a Dell Latitude laptop with intel i7 integrated graphics. I have already tried every common solution I have found while searching:

  • Computer drivers and Firefox are up to date
  • Disabled hardware acceleration
  • Disabled all my add-ons
  • Turned off Firefox enhanced tracking protection
  • Turned on allow autoplay video and audio
  • Started in safe mode, still won't play video
  • Cleared cookies and site data
  • Refreshed firefox
  • Uninstalled and reinstalled firefox

Is there anything else I can try, or any troubleshooting steps I can follow?

Thank you!
