Where did the subtitles go?

Posted

I watch a lot of movies and shows in different languages. Previously, Firefox mobile worked awesomely in providing a stable, reliable experience. Now however, I cannot seem to view subtitles or any text file incuded with video anywhere. >:-$ This seems to be an issue only with this browser. My other browsers show the subtitles fine, though watching is the issue with them. Would really like some help with this, if there's a way to fix it. Btw, I am using the latest version of firefox mobile. At this point, I just wish I could go back to the previous version. Someone please help! :-(

If the media doesn't require a login, could you give a sample URL to check it out?

Yes, firefox for android. And yes. Instead of letters, only square or recangular boxes appear. This happens on any site, youtube included. Numbers show up, but never letters, just the boxes.
