So I just picked up a new laptop (ASUS Vivobook 16x), and everything is fresh on it. Additionally, this only affects some video content in Firefox, with Edge browser unaffected. In brief, what is happening is that within a couple hours of having the browser open, certain video content stops working, specifically Twitter/X videos just spin, YouTube previews stop working, and videos continually load. Netflix videos continue to work, but hover previews stop functioning. I even check the 'Stats for Nerds' on YT and it shows 0 KB network activity in Firefox.
I've tried every basic action I can think of:
- Turning off extensions (only use Ublock and Bitwarden)
- Browser Refresh (x3)
- Reverting from 120.1 to 120.0, and now 199.0.1
- Clearing the browser cache
- Reinstalling NVidia and Intel Drivers
- Running in Safe Mode
Only by doing a refresh or completely closing/opening the app gets videos to function again. This doesn't affect the old laptop or my desktop, which makes me think it's a rogue driver--but then why would Edge function without error over the same period of time?
Are there any settings to play with in the browser that can help diagnose?
