Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0
Build ID: 20150702232110

Steps to reproduce:

Accept a call, initiate a call or join a room created by myself or by another party.


Actual results:

Shortly (less than a second) after connecting using a "Conversation link", a self initiated conversation (by the other side accepting the call) or accepting a call initiated by the other side, the client is disconnected with the only error message "something went wrong". When joining a room, I can see myself in the smaller webcam window for a moment before it disconnects.

WebRTC test sites work. So webcam/microphone sharing is working. This happens on Firefox 39 for Linux, Firefox 39 for Windows (another user, computer and account) and even Firefox 38 on Windows (but this last one was only tested in a VirtualBox and not natively).


Expected results:

Continuous sending and receiving of vide/audio.
Please can you open the Browser Toolbox (from the Tools / Web Developer menu) and see if you get any warnings or errors after joining the room.

Additionally, if this doesn't work, please can you share an example conversation url where it hasn't worked.

Sure thing! I opened the Browser Console on a Linux Firefox for a conversation [1] and got the following messages:

Then I disabled _all_ add-ons installed, restarted Firefox, opened the Browser Console and just tried to join the previously started conversation that still was available in the Hello popup. That's what Firefox logged:

It looks like you've got something that is blcoking websockets or connections to third parties. What extensions do you have installed?

At the second try: none. But to make sure nothing is wrong on this specific computer, I went to my Windows PC that is only used for games and therefore has almost nothing installed. The Firefox on there is "vanilla" without any (not even disabled) add-ons/extensions and nothing was manually changed since a long time (automatic Windows- and Firefox-updated were done, of course):

Sorry for the language. But it basically says the same. I uninstalled Firefox on that computer and reinstalled it with a freshly downloaded stub installer. Then I deleted the Mozilla-folders in the <User>/AppData/Local and <User>AppData/Roaming folder and reinstalled once again. When clicking on Hello I "had to" see the introduction again. I'm neither a Windows nor a Firefox expert, but I hope all traces of potential extensions are gone by now on that machine ;-).

Still the same problems. Just to mention it again: this is another computer with another operating system, a vanilla firefox and I didn't log in into the Hello service on this client after reinstalling.

Anything else I could do to help you with your diagnosis?
Ok, we've been seeing a few reports of other issues. I'm currently talking to TokBox to find out if they had issues on their side. 

Is this still a problem for you?
I've just found this page: https://status.opentok.com/ which indicates TokBox had an issue over the weekend.

It should all be resolved now, so resolving.

Actually, I'm going to re-open this. It feels like we should be able to set up something better - either a better error message or more details.

The simple thing would be to change the error message for code 1006 (Abnormal close) from "Something went wrong" to something like "There was a network issue", or "There was an issue connecting to the server. Please check your network or try again later"

That seems to be the simple improvement. I could see longer term that we might want more of a "the service is down" report, but that seems more complicated to do at this stage.

Adam, any thoughts here?

I agree that something along the lines of "Firefox is having difficulty connecting to the Hello service. Please try again later." being useful. Ideally, it would contain language that lets *us* know that it's TB's infrastructure rather than ours, but I don't want to call them out by name.
