YouTube 4K video playback performance issue on Windows 11

I had been using Firefox browser for awhile, but because of playback performance issue, I have to using another browser just for video playing, especially for 4K video.

Compared to Edge, Firefox seems taking more resources to playback the YouTube video and more heat. When look at the Task Manager, the Video Processing is 0%, and GPU is running significantly more resources on '3D'.

We need links to the problem video for others to try at 4k setting to see what happens. And a screenshot of the resource task manager to see what other process is causing this.
