Bug Description

-Ubuntu release: Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS

-Package version: 3.26.0-1ubuntu2

-What I expected to happen:

The videos about "Getting started with GNOME" should play without issues.

-What happened instead:

Instead of playing the videos the help application hangs until the WebKit process (/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/webkit2gtk-4.0/WebKitWebProcess) crashes.

I was able to reproduce this bug with NVIDIA hardware using the open source driver inside a live session, using AMD hardware or the proprietary NVIDIA driver causes no issue at all.
