Videos appear dark and orange

more options

On a laptop running Windows 11, all videos I play in Firefox have been strangely dark and orange. Depending on their original appearance, this can make them unwatchable.

This only affects videos in Firefox, and only on this laptop. Chrome, Windows video player (and Firefox on my other devices) do not share this issue. The issue affects all monitors I connect the laptop to.

I have attempted: -A thorough search of Firefox settings and found nothing related. -Refresh and reinstall of Firefox -in about:config

   gfx.color_management.native_srgb to true
   Confirmed ui.videoDynamicRange was set to to 0

None of these has helped. According to all the evidence I can find online, a similar issue was caused by a problem with HDR video files and fixed in an update 2 years ago, but I am running version 127.0 and am up to date.

Other things I've tried without success:

- Make sure Windows Night Shift is turned off - Uninstall f.Lux - Reboot after making those changes

In the screenshots above, the bright one is what it should look like, and the dark one is what it actually looks like in Firefox. Other browsers on the same laptop are fine. Other content on this laptop is fine. It's just video in Firefox on this laptop that exhibits the problem.
