Hello ,

i am using Firefox browser on most of my devices and i really like it , but lately i noticed some shortcomings (plugins no more working outside Firefox ESR starting with FF52) and since i often visit RT noticed that embedded videos that refer to Twitter won't work on my systems that are limited to Firefox 45 on Macintoshs with MacOS X 10.5 till 10.8. Mac OS 10.9+ can install Firefox 45+ eg FF 52 or above , but for example on Mac that is running Osx Lion 10.7.5 and FF 45 this problem appears.

Here is a link to a site with embedded video that works on such a system

instead when the embedded video is linked to twitter it won't show the video, like here

Is there anything i could do to make the video playable on Firefox 45?

Thank you very much for your great work at Mozilla!

Looks like this was fixed with this bug. It doesn't mention a specific Firefox version, but Firefox 45 can't play such a m3u stream, so you are out of luck.
