I used to put a YouTube video with autoplay turned off, so whenever I fell asleep, the screen of my phone would turn off when the video was over.

Suddenly, some weeks ago, whenever the YouTube video stops, the screen remains on. And it drains the battery all night long.

I already completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, and also tried the Video Background Play Fix add-on, but this problems persists, and it's ONLY on YouTube.

What can I do?

Happens in every video, I am signed into an account on YouTube. Only add-on is uBlocker Origin and I already tried reinstalling Firefox without it.

When a YouTube video ends, if I have it in fullscreen, the screen remains indefinitely on like this:
