It works on librewolf and brave, and im running on fedora 37 (using the flatpak package) i have tried every fix including but not limited to: reinstalling, troubleshoot mode, making a new profile and clearing cache. also the openh264 plugin always says preparing to install or smth but never does, thought id mention it in case its important.

What the openh264 is for https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/open-h264-plugin-firefox

One thing that is not normally installed in a new Linux install and is needed is FFmpeg as it provides the codecs needed to fully support the HTML5 players used for video, audio and games. Without it you may still be able to watch some videos on say Youtube, though usually not the recently uploaded or live stream videos.
