Hello. Some time ago (most likely, after certain windows upgrade), my two desktops start to experience extreme slowdown when scrolling thru twitter, especially, when there is an embedded video (even not playing video) - mouse cursor moves slowly, scrolling speed goes down to 1-2 fps, screen area where embedded video should be displayed, goes black and some other issues.
Configuration of PCs is as follows:
i3-1200F/16GB/RX6600 8GB
i9-9100F/16GB/RX550 2GB
Both running windows 10 pro 64 bit.

Removing graphics driver and reinstallation does not help. Disabling quick startup also does nothing. Tried edge/chrome, both browsers are lagging. Also tried turning off hardware acceleration in browsers - no change. As a last resort, I installed my old Nvidia Quadro K620 and issue is absolutely gone - scroll is butter smooth and there are no delays. I tried that card on both systems and on both it solved that issue. I tried to run CPU/GPU monitors while having twitter page open - they show normal load, no peaks or anything.

What is more surprising, as I discovered accidentally, if I have Adobe Premiere running (some project open, and program window minimized) - issue goes away with AMD graphics cards! As I close Adobe Premiere, issues come back again.

Any ideas?

As I can guess by myself, adobe premiere activates video hardware encoding/decoding block, so it is no longer available to browser, so video is decoded via software and issues go away. But why then disabling hardware acceleration in browser setting does nothing?

Windows 11 ? I get things like that in Insider Dev build.
