Description

Sometimes videos just crash and no longer play unless the torbrowser is restarted and this happens at random

This happens on facebook , youtube and twitter

It can be reproduced by scrolling down this link

https://twitter.com/search?f=videos&vertical=default&q=cats&src=typd

First few search results will be fine but keep scrolling down and videos will crash and cant play them

@intrigeri could reproduce this with Tor Browser 9.0 on Debian sid and
Tor Browser 9.0.1 on Debian sid

The big first question is: does Firefox esr have the same bug? Or is this bug new in Tor Browser?

Thanks for the report. Next steps would be:

1) Filing a report on Mozilla's bug tracker
2) Check whether the current Firefox stable has the same problem, if so
3) Check whether a currenty Nightly still has the issue
4) Use mozregression to find the problematic commit.
