Links to Microsoft Team files (https://teams.microsoft.com) do not open in Firefox even after configuring security exceptions
Hi, I have an email with links to documents stored on MS Team (https://teams.microsoft.com/...) and I get the following error return by the MS site when I try to open it in Firefox (Version 63.0 (64-bit) ):
D'oh! To open the web app, you need to change your browser settings to allow third-party cookies.
I added https://teams.microsoft.com to the following list of exceptions: - Block pop-up windows - Cookies and Site Data
I even tried to disable the "Third-Party Cookies" options: it still doesn't work.
If I try to open the link with Chrome to confirm that the link is valid, it does work.

Does that happen if you use IE or Edge?
I just tried on IE Version 11.345.171340 and it does work.
Also of interest, when I open a link to a MS Sharepoint document from Firefox, it DOES work. Only links to MS Team documents, which are really stored on Sharepoint at the end - MS Team is just sitting on top of MS Sharepoint for file storage -, DO NOT work.
If you use extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) that can block (wanted) content (Adblock Plus, DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials, NoScript, Disconnect, Ghostery, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin) always make sure such extensions do not block (wanted) content.
- make sure your extensions and filters are updated to the latest version
Firefox shows the shield icon at the left end of the location/address bar in case Content Blocking is blocking content.
- click the shield icon for more detail and possibly disable the protection
You can check the Web Console about what content is blocked
- "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Web Developer
