As of yesterday when I was running v119.0 I was able to screen capture streaming content from Hulu/Netflix etc, this morning after upgrading to v120.0 overnight, that capability is now lost. Video and still captures are just a black screen. Please fix!

Could be about Widevine switching to hardware-based decryption (Widevine: Level 1). You can try a lower resolution.

I'm having this same problem (although I've also experienced it on one other browser, so it may not be Firefox-related) and this is not an acceptable solution. I flat-out will not accept a lower-quality experience in order to do something I could do just fine a couple of days ago.

One workaround is to disable hardware acceleration.
