Battery life poor

I've got an M2 MacAir running the latest version of Sonoma. Within the last week, the battery power has fallen off a cliff. It barely runs for a couple of hours and recharging takes nearly half a day. I'm not running anything unusual just social media & YT videos. This seems to have coincided with the latest Firefox update. I was wondering if this might be contributing to it or if this is a common problem since Sonoma & FF updates?

Anyone any ideas?

Make sure hardware acceleration is enabled.

Disable the AV1 codec by changing media.av1.enabled to false in about:config (mostly affects Youtube).

Force hardware video decoding by changing media.hardware-video-decoding.force-enabled to true then restart the browser.
