Just today a web based TV show has stopped playing, the circle spins for a moment (as if it was loading) the circle then just vanishes and nothing plays.

I am running Win 11, I have successfully had the video play in Edge and Brave.

Artifacts on webpages when hardware acceleration is enabled. Disabling hw acceleration removes artifacts, but degrades performance of browser significantly. Using hw acceleration in Chrome has no artifacts. The error is not in the hardware or driver, but in the Mozilla software. By searching on this topic on Google, it's a common error in Firefox.

The last version where artifacts where not present was: pp_name: firefox build_date: 2020-01-15 build_file: C:\Users\tulle\.mozilla\mozregression\persist\2020-01-15--mozilla-central--firefox-74.0a1.en-US.win64.zip build_type: nightly build_url: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/2020/01/2020-01-15-21-36-21-mozilla-central/firefox-74.0a1.en-US.win64.zip changeset: c35bb210b8ae793c844bd94c1848d246bf601293 repo_name: mozilla-central repo_url: https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central

When I want to go to the NY Times, and i type "nyt" the address bar automatically populated with the rest of the URL "nytimes.com". When I do the same thing with gmail and "gmail" it runs a search on a search engine instead of completing the rest of the URL.

Why would it do this for one website and not another? How do I fix this, I use gmail all the time so its a bit of a time waster.

Thank you in advance for your help!

This might just be a blind thing, I use the NVDA screen reader, but when I sign in to firefox, my password is 12 letters long, but when I look on my settings page, it's 18 characters long, is this normal?

I can log in using my 12 letter password and it's not a master password, I don't have one of those.

Any help would be apreciated.
