Thank you for enabling Gmail's Google Hangout phone dialer and making it compatible to your browser!!! I wish you had a feedback link to leave things like this. I have to go through so much just to thank you. Hardly makes it worth all the bother. But I wanted to be sure that I appreciate that you finally did this! Making me open Chrome just to make a phone call doesn't make sense if you want to keep your users. Glad you finally did it. And what a surprise that I ran across the fact that it finally works! Glad I did. Like my supplement companies that sneak sugar into their capsules without telling us, you fixed this without telling me! Glad I stumbled on it by accidentally trying to make a call in Firefox and discovering that I was getting through. Last time I contacted you about this was 7/29/17. Today is 7/24/18. Over a year?!? Tsk, tsk, tsk.

I'm glad you're happy. Just note, Firefox has been compatible with hangouts and these google features for a long time, google just dragged their feet enabling them for Firefox users because they would rather you use Chrome. This wasn't so much us enabling them as it was Google finally letting other people play with their toys

I think, that most of credits for disabling Hangouts for Firefox and enabling it years later gooes to google. They finally managed how to do it with web standards.

Thanks, guys. I was told a year ago that Google indeed wanted people using Chrome instead, and both Google and Firefox each wanted the other one to make it compatible if Firefox wanted it working at all, and neither was willing to do it. I’m just glad it’s done. Do either of you know when it actually happened, since I only discovered it by accident today?
