Just installed Chrome and Firefox, I'm using Edge since the Windows 11 install. All 3 browsers are working fine.

I turned everything off on windows defender and did reset to default, it removed all the rules from windows firewall, very clean, then chrome would not work anymore loading videos then I created a new firewall rule udp port 5353, that is the same rule microsoft edge uses and voila worked again, did the same thing to firefox and youtube videos still not loading hehe, everything else works, videos on facebook and other places no issues with firefox, only on youtube ehhe

Well on firefox there is a plugin called "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.", not sure if that is the case why is not loading videos on youtube. The plugin will not download, have done the manual installation and after you install and close firefox, you check and says the plugin is not downloaded and then you have to do the manual installation and the same thing happens, firefox does not keep the settings saved once it is closed, everything is so strange hehe

The other plugin close to widevine is openh264 and no issue on that, it is downloaded every time without an issue. Firefox.exe can't reach google and download this plugin, xhr requests on developer mode says nothing.

Did you try a clean install of Windows 10?

No, chrome and edge is working, so I will let this thing go for now, next time that I decide to make a new windows 11 installation, I will install windows 10 first and check for curiosity. Windows defender might be blocking something somewhere, tried many things but no luck, wait a new firefox version and see if that still persists.

I'm using firefox beta on my windows 11 work laptop, i have never used standard firefox, always the beta. maybe try the beta download of firefox? i haven't had any issues since launch on my work laptop, everything is just fine and i use firefox, chrome, and edge daily on it.

That is a good idea, i'm using the 94.01v, will try now the beta if it fixes. I tried few days ago the 94.01v from windows store and still the same. The beta version I downloaded right now is 95.0b8.

Edit: it did not work, I had an old profile laying around before I had updated from windows 10 to windows 11 and I had that "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc." plugin, installed on this firefox profile and still youtube videos are not loaded into it. Even firefox beta 95v could not help here, very strange issue. I guess forget for now.

I'm completely opposite. Have never used the beta/nightly builds. When they started making the ESR's, I defaulted to those.

If you're willing to experiment and you have a spare drive(SSD/HDD), try a fresh install with only drivers and an install of FireFox, making sure that you are offline for that whole install. Once finished, get online and see if the problem persists. If it does, you might have a corrupt Windows ISO, the flaws of which are being triggered by the FireFox runtimes. If it does not then there is something else causing the problem.

I don't even know what ESR stands for :p

Simple solution is to use an alternate start menu. Open Shell works perfectly on Windows 11 with a bit of tweaking.

EDIT:
Just in case anyone is interested in the wallpaper, I've included a ZIP(see attached) with all of purple variations I've made. As they are fair-use modifications of the Windows 10 1903 default wallpaper, I make no claims of ownership or rights. Enjoy!

I can't wake up Windows 11 with keyboard or mouse, only with the power button. I have already allowed the keyboard to wake up the pc and in the device manager, also I didn't allow Windows to power down the USB controllers. Finally, I disabled USB selective suspending in Power Options. Does anyone have any ideas?

In your situation, Windows is not detecting the hardware functionality you want to use and thus it is unavailable. That leaves you with two choices:
A. Stop using the Sleep/Hibernation functions of Windows.
B. Live with having to press the power button to wake up Windows.

I personally never use and deliberately disable Sleep/Hibernation.

When I type powercfg /devicequery wake_from_any my Razer Keyboard appears, but if I go to powercfg /devicequery wake_armed it doesn't appear, even though I had already set in Device Manager to allow it to wake up windows. So it seems to be something else right? Otherwise it wouldn't show in powercfg /devicequery wake_from_any.

I am absolutely rusty on this knowledge, but theres like S3 S4 and S5 sleep states and i dont recall what's what

With B550, you likely updated to a W11 supporting BIOS.
That would have included some new defaults and reset settings... so one of them related to the sleep states could be the cause of any changes.

Is Hybrid Sleep enabled? It's in Control Panel -> Power Options -> Advanced Settings -> Sleep -> Hybrid Sleep.
If it is enabled, that might be the problem. Try disabling and then let your system sleep and see if you can wake the system with KB or mouse.
Disabled hybrid sleep, but no luck. :(

I updated my BIOS with m-flash. It's the latest version. And powercfg /devicequery s1_supported, s2_supported, s3_supported and s4_supported shows that the razer keyboard does support all sleep states. It even lights up when I press any key, nothing else though.
