Try disabling the recently added autoplay blocking settings in Firefox. That could possibly be stopping the videos from playing, but I've had no issues using the sites referenced.

Otherwise, try running in Firefox Safe Mode to see if the problem continues in that mode. If not, it could be an issue caused by a browser extension or hardware acceleration.

Hope this helps.

If you are having issues outside of Firefox as well, it's likely not a Firefox-related problem. You can try upgrading your graphics drivers to the latest version (if possible) and see if that helps.

Unfortunately, if the issue is system-wide, your question may be better suited for the Apple support website.
