I have what I think is a specific video problem. Videos from the Washington Post get the message “This video is currently not available”. Other videos, e.g. from the New York Times do work. Washington Post videos work with Chrome and Opera.
The problem is on a new Dell Inspiron 5502 running Windows 10 and Ubuntu with dual boot. The problem only occurs under Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS. It does not occur under Windows Firefox.
The current Firefox is 84.0.2. The problem did occur under 84.0 but I didn’t have time to pursue it.
The add-ons manager under extensions has no entries. Under plugins there is only “OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems”.
Under preferences, performance, hardware acceleration is not selected and the content process limit is left at 8.
Running in safe mode does not help.
