User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/58.0.3029.81 Safari/537.36 Steps to reproduce: When one turns on "Never remember history" in privacy settings some videos like the ones in Fox News stop playing. Changing to remember history has the videos playing again. I have been searching for this for a while since the relationship is not obvious at all. I did a refresh firefox which had the videos playing but when I turned on Never remember history they stopped playing again. This does not seem like an intended behavior. Using Firefox 53.0 under Fedora Linux 25 Actual results: Videos stopped playing
Please provide a complete link that allows others to reproduce.
I guess this is the site problem related to Tracking Protection.
Any video in foxnews.com...
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/55.0 Hi and thanks for your report! I was able to reproduce the issue you described on all Firefox channels using Windows 10 x64, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and MAC OS X. After changing to "Never remember history" option and restarting Firefox, the videos from Fox news cannot be played anymore. http://video.foxnews.com/v/5411350272001/?#sp=show-clips http://video.foxnews.com/v/5411333989001/?#sp=show-clips http://video.foxnews.com/v/5411286978001/?playlist_id=2114913880001#sp=show-clips
"Never remember history" triggers "Tracking Protection". Disabling "Tracking Protection" from identify icon fixes the foxnews video playback.
