    Same issue with my Logitech c930e, but in the following configuration:

    Fedora Linux 36 + Firefox 101

    Have had the issue for a while (almost a year) but am listing the latest versions I have tested. The webcam feed sometimes takes more than a minute to appear, and when it does, it shows up in 4:3.

    Some additional notes:
    - My webcam works fine with the problematic configuration on other websites (webcammictest) and in other applications I have tested on Linux (OBS, Zoom).
    - Firefox has default height and width values that can be set in about:config (media.navigator.video.default_height and media.navigator.video.default_width) that have no effect on this issue (tested with 1080p and 720p at least). The overrided settings do work in a test page I made that didn't specify video height or width constraints for the WebRTC user media.

    In my case the issue isn't present when running Firefox 101 on Windows 10 or Chromium 100 on Fedora Linux 36. The feeds show up properly in 16:9. This gives me a workaround at least, though as far as I can tell there isn't anything more I can do to resolve it.
