Twitter gifs do not work.

Posted

I have tried:

Running in safe-mode without add-ons. Checking About:Config that animation is set on true Checked if html-5 works and is all blue.

Gifs work fine on any other site and .mp4 (non-looped) works fine.

Please help. Issue occured after fresh windows install, all drivers and programs are therefore as up to date as possible due to installing them just days ago.

Chosen solution

I have done nothing since the problem occured but yesterday for unknown reasons my internet had changed on its own to Public network as opposed to Home network. Why will remain a mystery.

It caused however, inability to load any webpages at all.

  • So i unplugged my router, waiting the classic 10 sec for the modem to restart. (My connection is 2 boxes, most homes have 1)
  • I changed network settings back to Home Network and restarted my pc for good measure.
  • After that I went in to twitter to check if that might've magically fixed things

Currently all gifs play normally.


I have by the way made a ticket to twitter about it 2 days ago but i doubt it was them who did anything from their end. I have also installed malwarebytes during my time of struggle, but I doubt it was that which fixed things.

Did you check the Web Console for error messages?

Some websites have a policy that Firefox obeys that prohibits to include their content on another website. If this content is embedded then that could very well be the case. The Web Console might show a message in such a case about content being blocked.

Fresh reinstall of firefox, even before I did any alterations I went in to twitter and none of the gifs will load.

If I try to post a gif myself by going through the list of suggested gifs, those play without any issues until posted.

so any already posted gifs do not play.

as previously said: other sites are perfectly functional, issue is on twitter only

any of these look wrong. according to the other suggestions concerning that topic neither of these false ones were mentioned as possible culprit.

You can temporarily disable CSP by toggling this pref to false on the about:config page to check for CSP related issues.

  • security.csp.enable = false

This is a security feature you shouldn't leave it disabled and re-enable this feature once you are done with the website.

I have done nothing since the problem occured but yesterday for unknown reasons my internet had changed on its own to Public network as opposed to Home network. Why will remain a mystery.

It caused however, inability to load any webpages at all.

  • So i unplugged my router, waiting the classic 10 sec for the modem to restart. (My connection is 2 boxes, most homes have 1)
  • I changed network settings back to Home Network and restarted my pc for good measure.
  • After that I went in to twitter to check if that might've magically fixed things

Currently all gifs play normally.


I have by the way made a ticket to twitter about it 2 days ago but i doubt it was them who did anything from their end. I have also installed malwarebytes during my time of struggle, but I doubt it was that which fixed things.
