Trying to kick the Chrome habit, but Firefox giving me endless problems with media
I'm on Firefox Quantum 66.0.3, windows 10.
I'm having a hell of a time getting media to play in Firefox. I performed a complete refresh from the about:support page, and that fixed some issues (youtube began to play again), but now I'm still facing issues with animated gifs not playing at all, or just the audio. Also seeing no thumbnails on imgur pages, just a black space where the gif should be.
I want to stick with Firefox, but these problems are frustrating. I have disabled every extension I have (uBlock, Privacy Badger, Ghostery, AdBlock Plus,and RES) and nothing seems to solve my issue. Imgur (in particular) just does not work with Firefox (for me). Neither do any links that are v.reddit.
I'd be grateful for any help.
EDIT: I did consider running away from this and hiding when I realized the problem... damn it. Turns out I had another Firefox task running in the background (no idea why it didn't close). I closed it out in Task Manager, and everything started working again. Doh!
