FF caused BSOD

I was recently watching a Twitch livestream when I stepped away from my PC for a moment and upon returning found it sitting at the login screen. Checking eventvwr it showed a BSOD event had occurred. The only thing actively running on my PC was FireFox with a single tab for Twitch.

Level: Critical Source: Kernal-Power Event ID: 41 BugCheckCode: 307 decimal, 0x133 hex

Windows documentation lists hex 0x133 as a DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION error, and since Parameter 1 was a '0', it states, "A single DPC or ISR exceeded its time allotment. The offending component can usually be identified with a stack trace."

From Windows Debugging Tools I loaded up the DMP file and ran !analyze to see the process name listed as FF (there's more information listed, just not sure it's really useful).

I checked FF `about:crashes` and it doesn't show any crash report there (presumably because the system BSOD and it did not have a chance to do anything).

Just wondering if anyone else has seen this issue and how/if they resolved it. In searching around it seemed like some folks suggested disabling hardware acceleration as there may be incompatibility issues with FF and GPU drivers. I checked under FF settings and it has "Use recommended performance settings" enabled, but there are no sub-options specific for hardware acceleration.

Some basic system specs: MoBo: Gigabyte B550 Vision D-P (BIOS F13e, latest available) CPU: AMX Ryzen 7 5800X GPU: Gigabyte GeForce 3060Ti (driver, latest one available)

Running on FF 94.0.2 (64-bit), the latest update.
