Ever since i re-installed my windows, Firefox just won't play live streams. Neither Youtube or Twitch works. I have tried everything i have seen on internet, nothing works. I do get to see them on Chrome or Brave, but i don't like those browsers, i wan't my firefox back!!!!

Is the problem that Firefox can't play H.264/MP4 video? I have a copy of Google's old test page here as a quick check: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/sumo/html5-video.html

Some editions of Windows are sold unbundled, meaning, in order to satisfy competition authorities, Microsoft offers media components as a separate download that you need to install yourself. Firefox needs those to decode H.264/MP4 video. More info in the following article:

Fix video and audio playback problems on Firefox for Windows

Can you check on whether that is the issue?
