WebRTC communication failure
We are using firefox as the browser client for a webrtc based video streaming application. The other client is Gstreamer webrtcbin. The communication works fine with FIPS mode disabled, but it fails when we enable FIPS as part of security. The Gstreamer client sends an SDP offer to the firefox browser client, but it fails to create an answer and respond back. The WebAPI (RTCPeerConnection.createOffer) fails with below exception at application code.
"UnknownError: The operation failed for an unknown transient reason"
Also, tried to check some failure message in browser log and found as below. Not sure if it is related to the failure.
NS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_VALUE: Component returned failure code: 0x80070057 (NS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_VALUE) [nsICryptoHash.init]
OS - OpenSUSE 15 SP3 Firefox version - 78.13.0esr (we also tried with version 91.10.0esr)
Any quick help will be much appreciated as we are stuck with this.

Hi Saurav, you might want to file a bug about this, I think it's a bit specialized for our general support forum.
Thanks Jeff for the suggestion. Will try to file a bug directly on Mozilla. Posted the query in forum to see if anyone else has faced similar issue and have some details which can help us quickly, as it might take some time to fix this issue through a bug and deliver the solution.
Can you provide steps to replicate the issue? Is there a reason for the old version of Firefox?

@Jon, there is no specific steps to replicate the issue. You can have a sample WebRTC solution and try to use that with FIPS(Federal information processing standards) mode enabled. FIPS are a set of standard and guidelines that needs to be followed for any communication in a product to be used by federal Government. Are you referring to the steps used to enable the FIPS mode?
