Latest Firefox has problems displaying NYTimes videos. NYTimes says Chrome is better. Why?

After the last couple of updates, Firefox now gets stuck when I try to watch a video withing an article on the nytimes.com web site; I just get a little arrow going around in an endless circle. In the past, videos would play o.k.

So in order to view a video, I must copy and paste the link into a Chrome browser, where the video plays immediately.

When I asked the NYTimes web support tech about it, he replied, "Certain browsers have issues supporting the NYT. We recommend using Google Chrome to view the NYT content if possible."

Why does Chrome play videos perfectly and Firefox not at all on this important site?

I have no problems with Firefox playing videos at other sites.

Here's an example page. No show with Firefox, o.k. with Chrome.

I updated to Firefox 66 on Linux yesterday. I don't know if it's the browser version, but I noticed that nytimes.com started picking up that I'm browsing the site in private mode.

Interestingly, this is something that used to happen on my Chrome book when I used private mode, but this on Firefox, this is a first for me. It may well be that nytimes changed their code to do this, but I wonder upgrade to FF 66 contributed to this.

In any case, I wonder how a site can pick up if the user is browsing in private mode.

The NY Times and The Washington Post both indicate I am in Private mode and I can not access articles without logging in to their sites vs just seeing articles which I could do last week.

I am a NYT subscriber but can no longer access content behind the paywall on FireFox. Yet, it works fine on Chrome and Edge. When I am on the NYT homepage, it shows that I am logged in. When I click on an article on the home page, it loads it but a pop-up makes it blurry and says that I need to be a subscriber to see it. Yet, the top of the page shows that I am still logged as a subscriber. The problems occurs on my two notebooks. Both are running Windows 10. One has Norton as antivirus, the other has Windows Defender. To troubleshoot, I have turned off all FireFox "Content Blocking" and have cleaned up cookies and browsing history (twice), but it has not cleared the problem. I have reinstalled FireFox twice. I am also a subscriber to the Washington Post, and I have no problem reading it.

When I visit a site like Washington Post or New York Times then another site, if I use the back button, Firefox usually loads an old cached version of the newspaper's home page from earlier in the day, even if the page I last viewed from was a later refresh. If I manually refresh, the page does become up-to-date, but it's a small annoyance.

Hi. I have downloaded and installed the latest Adobe flashplayer and told "Manage Plug-ins" to allow it to run and to "remember this decision," but https://www.nytimes.com/crosswords/game/kenken still won't load.

I just closed the browser and re-opened it, and checked the "Manage PLug-ins" button, and once again it has not saved the instruction to allow Adobe to run on the site.

The site still works fine with Safari.

This is really annoying. What am I missing?

Thanks!
