Disabled SpeedStep and its Turbo speed submenu. Restarted.
Ran for 39 seconds (whilst playing audio). Didn't see the previous error about 'not configured to run real time audio'.

Much improved. How is the audio now?
Posted 15 December 2021 - 01:56 PM
No idea. It was an intermittent problem. Have to observe for longer period of time.

mp3 audio froze again until I closed sandboxed firefox.

Sounds like sandbox is the problem. Can you run Latency Monitor again with audio going at the same time as Firefox in Sandbox?

Ran Latency Log with mp3 playing and Firefox loaded.

Perhaps a memory leak in Firefox. You can run Process Explorer and click on Private Bytes column header (Twice I think) to bring the heaviest users to the top. See if the amount of memory used slowly climbs over time. Also in Firefox settings there is an option under Performance to set the Content Process Limit. The default is 8 which makes it faster but causes it to use more memory because it creates extra processes and also makes it more prone to Page Faults. I usually set mine to 1 since I have a fast Internet connection.

I do load a lot of tabs in firefox, so I do see a lot RAM used normally.
Is that what you consider a memory leak?
If so, how would reducing the Content Process limit to 1 affect my many tabs?

A memory leak grows in time even if you don't do anything. Adding a tab may use a bit more memory but once the tab is added memory use should be constant.
Reducing the Content Process Limit to one may slow down access a tad but instead of 10 Firefox processes running you will only have 3 which cuts down on a lot of the memory use. Try it and see what happens. You can always put it back if you don't like it.

You have to uncheck "Use recommended performance settings" then you should get the options
