Firefox crashes when loading Google Meet call.
Hi Firefox team,
I am having issues after updating to the latest version of Firefox. When opening a Google Meet meeting, my Firefox browser crashes and it keeps doing again and again. Otherwise, the browser works just fine.
The following is from the abouts:crashes webpage: ID: fcf6a6af-3c59-4e02-9d1b-3b2cf0210927 Signature: VTPixelTransferSessionCanUseMetalInTheBackground
Thank you, Yerkebulan

That looks like a problem with VideoToolbox that handles hardware-accelerated video encoding and decoding.

Are there settings possible to change the video resolution or possibly disable video hardware acceleration ?
Thank you for your response.
Unfortunately, this doesn't explain why my browser crashes as I don't have any software for hardware-accelerated video encoding and decoding. Any other reasons?
