Video causes browser to display white screen
Occasionally, when I am watching a video on Youtube or Twitch, the video will glitch and cause the browser to go completely white. On Youtube, there will be a small visual glitch and on Twitch, the video will crash and need to be reloaded, but otherwise nothing else happens.
I disabled hardware acceleration a week or two ago and it seems to have solved the issue.Read this answer in context 👍 1

Update: It seems this issue happens with any HTML5 video, caused by the video player crashing.
Any relevant-looking messages in the Browser Console assuming that Firefox keeps running and doesn't need to be restart ?
