Hi,

I am running Firefox 108.0 on Ubuntu 20.04.5 and videos on Reddit don't play, they just buffer (?). Youtube works fine. I've tried the suggestions on this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-common-audio-and-video-issues#search but nothing seems to work.

Thanks

A full browser screenshot is more useful. Did you already try with Firefox in Safe Mode? run ffmpeg -v and see post what you get. Here is mine. see screenshot

If you're having the same issue with the distro version and Mozilla Firefox... Sounds like something in the OS. You should see what happens in a VM or usb live stick. Or just switch to Tumbleweed.  ;-))

You should still run both versions of Firefox so that you data is not in just 1 browser. There are many users losing data after OS or browser update. see old screenshot
