User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0 SeaMonkey/2.53.3

Steps to reproduce:

Have got a link to a session in Meet at
Trying it in SeaMonkey.

Actual results:

SeaMonkey browser window revolves infinitely but cannot load that link

Expected results:

Should go to the session and join it.

NOT reproducible with installation of unofficial (by wg9s) De SeaMonkey 2.53.5 beta 1 pre Mozilla/5.0 (NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0 Build 20200727210001 (Default Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit: Link above works fine in normal and also Private Window.

Also reproducible with a newly created User Profile?

The link at works perfectly.
What I meant, when someone invites me to Meet session with a unique link to that very session, that link cannot load.
Try this now:

Depending on User Agent String and other preferences you get instant error message or endless "Getting Ready ...", I know

Summary: Google Meet link not loading → Google Meet session will not start
Keywords: dupeme

Who is User Agent and what is User Agent String ? How can I help it?

I use "User Agent Switcher - converted"
But that will not help to get it running.

Additionally this one might be related to Bug 1624636 and others. Currently most video conferences will not work with SeaMonkey

Interested in doing some tests for Video Conferences with SeaMonkey?

Would be nice

Any experience with Video conferences in SM? If you are interested we can do some systematic tests with various Video Meeting Systems, starting next week?
For example
Monday 2021-08-23 13:00 UTC? and / or
Tuesday 2021-08-24 17:00 UTC?
We do some tests with some hosted video conference systems, find out which will not crash immediately and then do some ocnference tests. Appropriate place to share our results might be the wiki.

What do you think?

Good. Expecting links from you. Google meet and Microsoft Teams too, I believe.
