Public bug reported:

Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS

Linux aorus 5.15.0-58-generic #64~20.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 6 16:42:31 UTC 2023 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Today, Feb 22, 2023 I used apt upgrade which included firefox.

Now, when I try a youtube video, for example,
Firefox hangs, displaying the loading circle.
