ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

The lib used for video playback seems to be the suspect since the new hardware acceleration that has been activated in the last system release.

Please use Sailfish utilities (Jolla Store) to check if using second option -home screen- helps in resolving too, then I would assume a memory problem.

Thanks, I didn’t had the reflex to restart lipstick. Next time it happens, I’ll do it and report the result here.

I confirm that restarting lipstick solves the problem temporarily.
Up to now, it seems that the problem appears only after video playback inside the browser.
