And thank you all- searching this one out- and very much appreciate responses and video!
Quick update...I checked the pressure with a very basic gauge, like you'd use to add a can of refrigerant, not a high quality set. It read ok (mid-way in the "safe zone"), so it was not at the upper end of the safe zone while idling and the AC was on high cool.
But funny thing...it suddenly acted normal afterward...now I'm not about to just let myself think checking the system pressure and possibly losing a tiny bit of pressure just from hooking up the gauge and removing it did the trick (though I checked it 3x to ensure consistency).
Again- huge thanks to all. I'm on Ford forums too, but have been mostly doing my due diligence first in case it's been answered, not a lot of luck yet.
