I SOLVED FROM MYSELF IT: https://github.com/nextcloud/spreed/issues/3323 here is the solution

The problem seems to be Firefoxes resistFingerprinting flag.

If you go to about:config in Firefox, and set the flag privacy.resistFingerprinting to true, the issue arises. ✔️ Solution

You can check for issues with Total Cookie Protection.

You can check for issues with Enhanced Tracking Protection. Firefox shows a purple shield instead of a gray shield at the left end of the location/address bar in case Enhanced Tracking Protection is blocking content.

  • click the shield icon for more detail and possibly disable the protection

You can check the Web Console for relevant-looking messages like blocked content.


You can try these steps in case of issues with webpages:

You can reload webpage(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
  • press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)

Clear the Cache and remove the Cookies for websites that cause problems via the "3-bar" Firefox menu button (Settings), click the padlock icon (Clear cookies and site data) for the domain in the selected tab.

"Remove the Cookies" for websites that cause problems:

  • Settings -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data: "Manage Data"

"Clear the Cache":

  • Settings -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> [X] Cached Web Content -> Clear

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or if userChrome.css/userContent.css is causing the problem.

  • switch to the Default System theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window

You can use fingerprinting protection with an exception for AudioContext:

privacy.fingerprintingProtection = true 
privacy.fingerprintingProtection.overrides = +AllTargets,-AudioContext


If a site is broken by fingerprinting protection, you can disable Tracking Protection for the site.

as 17 april 2024 new version 125.0.1 has been applied I tried to remove customizations as here solved and continue to work fine even without privacy.fingerprintingProtection = true

In all case I see no configurability on this new system and even can't be put OFF.

I find this really not good in a spread world of computers and needs.

Things like this let users to move to other browsers.

please adjust visibility and configurability on privacy.fingerprintingProtection
