Firefoxfilter: Flash stops playing in background
posted by cbrody to computers & internet (4 answers total) 1 user marked this as a favorite
I'm using Firefox 126.96.36.199 on WindowsXP. When moving to another tab, scrolling down the page or switching to another application, embedded Flash objects stop playing (e.g. music, videos). That is, unless I have another FF tab in the foreground that also contains a Flash object. Also, sometimes Flash objects will only play on one page if another Flash-containing page is in the foreground.
This must be a bug or a problem with my setup but I can't find it in BugZilla and I've tried disabling all extensions, reinstalling Flash and Firefox to no avail.
It doesn't happen in IE.. Any ideas how I can fix it?
