My Macbook pro retina Mid-2015 running Mojave 10.14.4 freezes in full screen mode for videos across any site I have tried. I have to go to Activity Monitor and End|Force either chrome or safari. Sites tested include:

  • youtube
  • espn
  • news sites

I have looked at quite a number of sites describing proposed/attempted solutions to the freezes in chrome and some in safari and have not come upon a solution to the issue from the title. Two commonly mentioned possibilities have already been tried:

  • disable hardware acceleration. this one froze my system faster
  • install h264ify . No discernible difference in behavior

Is there an updated approach to getting chrome and safari happy again?
