Hello, I have recently moved to a new OS, windows 10 pro x64. I have installed firefox 98.0.1 (64-bit) and am experiencing an issue I never had with old versions, it has always been true of chrome but never firefox builds in my experience. If I have a tab open with a video, whether its a livestream or just a youtube video for example, if that tab loses focus within seconds the video will freeze but the audio will continue. Then when I return to that tab/window the video will be set to the lowest possible quality ( despite having a gigabit service) and it takes a while for the video to refresh and then a little while longer for the audio to sync back up. The video has always stopped playing if I use the windows "show desktop" shortcut on the bottom right of the screen, but in every previous version of firefox I have used, swapping tabs and/or windows never had this issue before.
It is a clean install, I do not have any extensions and am not connected to a vpn.
I have tried
- turning hardware acceleration off
- disabling webgl
- changing the throttle option in about:config
- checked the network settings within firefox just to double check the proxy settings.
Few things I to note
All of my drivers are up to date, there are no readily apparent reasons on my end for this.
My system is pretty decent I think, ryzen 7 1700x, 32gb ram, 1 tb m.2, 1080ti
Also turns out the video will start to load if I hover over the window in taskbar so that the preview pops up, however in that case I still need to open the window back up because it treats it like I have just opened that website and I have to click in the video to start playback
Other than digging through firefox old versions and testing them 1 at a time to find the one I use to have I am not sure what I should try next. Thank you
