I’m using Firefox on macOS Catalina with uBlock Origin. Videos won’t play, just the 3/4 white circle spinning. Tried numerous shows. Not sure how long this has been going on, but nothing I’ve tried seem to work:
Thanks @PDelahanty and @Leo for the suggestions! Neither seemed to help. The problem just “appeared” unexpectedly. Restarting Firefox also didn’t help, but a Safe Boot followed by normal boot fixed it.
I hate Catalina. After four months, Apple still cannot figure out why unattended Mac unlocks with Apple Watch (from the next room), but that’s another story… Don’t know if it’s to blame, but in absence of other causes I’ll think that it is.
