I'm having an issue that seems to Lock up YouTube on Firefox.

I'm trying to get back into using Firefox but I'm having a persistent issue in both FF Mainline and even in FF Beta 119.

If i play a Video on YT then switch tab to do something else then go back to YT it lock up the video window. I do not have this happen on Chrome or Edge.

I have tried refreshing the browser and still have this issue.

PC Specs: Razer Razer Blade 15 Processor 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-11800H @ 2.30GHz 2.30 GHz Installed RAM 32.0 GB (31.8 GB usable) GPU NVIDIA RTX 3060


Here is link to short video of the issue described.

Any difference if you install h264ify?

Try switching to the discrete GPU:

Windows Settings > System > Display > Graphics > Add firefox.exe > Options > High performance GPU
