With Mozilla dropping NPAPI support in the latest version I lost the last browser that would stream video without freezing.(netflix, france24.com/en youtube,...).
Right now my NUC is a very expensive brick.
I have to run for now the Extended supported Firefox Release to be able to stream anything, but this version is plagued by image stuttering and poor video quality.
As I mentioned in the title, with any browser - Edge, Chrome Mozilla- once I click on the icon to start streaming, the NUC unit freezes completely and the cpu fan starts running at full speed.
The only option I have left is to hold down the power button to stop it.
When I browse the os event log I do not see any meaningful critical message for hw or sw.
NUC is the worst platform the big Intel came up with.
With any other PC, laptop or tablet in the household I do not experience any of this issues.
If you could help me, here is the system info:

Thank you for joining the Intel® NUC Community. I am sorry to hear you are having freezing issues with this unit.
I would like to gather more information regarding your unit, could you please run and attach the report from the following tool: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility-for-Windows- Download Intel® System Support Utility for Windows* ?
To attach a file, you must click "Use Advanced Editor" in the top right corner of the response box, then the "attach" option will appear in the bottom right corner of the response box.
Atached is the requested info.
By the way - once I disabled " Intel Turbo Boost" in bios I am able to use the unit to stream video with the latest Mozilla browser.
Thank you for the file.
With this option disabled, are you also able to stream without problems with the other browsers mentioned?
