Alex, would you mind taking a first look at this?

This must not be a problem in browser side. Soundcloud implements it's own bar they must have a bug there. The same behavior happens on Chrome. I will send a request in there customer service.

The fix is in the pipeline. Will hopefully be out either later today or next week.

We also support the media session API, but due to a configuration error this was not enabled. Does Firefox support this api? I noticed in the compatibility table it is all '?'

Thank you for the confirmation. No we are not supporting MediaSeesion API, and I am not sure about the timeline, :jib do you know if we plan to support MediaSession API soon?

Looks like an incubator spec only supported by Chrome for Android. I don't see it on our roadmap. Checking with jya to see if this is an omission.
