In some sites (like NYtimes.com), a media notification will appear showing something is playing, even though nothing really is, which causes other media to stop

Posted

In Firefox Preview for Android, when visiting some sites (like NYtimes.com), a media notification will appear showing something is playing, even though nothing really is, which causes other media (for example, podcast apps) to stop playing. See screenshot. This also occurs in regular Firefox on Android.

Hi kcsantiago,

It looks like this is a bug that we need to file. I believe it's something to do with the way Firefox Preview handles websites playing audio. Are there any other websites that this is occurring with, or is it only limited to nytimes.com? The issue is prevalent with other apps (like playing music in spotify) too, so if you can specify what other websites this occurs with, it will help our team to find what is causing the interruption.

I'm sorry - NYTimes.com is the only one I recall because I visit that site regularly.

Update: This site has embedded video and caused an issue: https://playerswiki.com/julio-urias

This keeps happening for me on a few sites, even when I can't see any media on the page, and no audio plays. Using firefox preview nightly
