Hi,

With the up-to-date version of Firefox Androind 84.1, Youtube videos(m.youtube.com) won't play in the background (on a tab that isn't on the foreground or in another app) any more. Downgrading to an older Firefox version does allow background playing. Is disabling updates the only option to maintain this function?

Just tried to use the Video Background Play Fix addon, and it works. The older version didn't need the addon, though. Anyway thanks a lot for the solution!!
