Since a few days ago, can't pinpoint the date,
.mp4 links fail to open;
.webm play fine. These are links to straight
This is how it looks like when opening a new tab, normally:
and this is when I try to open a link:
media should still be blocked by NoScript, the overlay should have appeared, but there isn't. I notice there is traffic going on, the browser tries to buffer something, but nothing happens. I tried searching through
about:config, but there doesn't seem to be anything out of the ordinary. The NoScript extension shows it has been updated "Feb 4th", so around the time when TB had an update, (more or less).
Does this happen because of the TB or the NoScript? But, more importantly, what can be done to fix it?
In addition, there are sites that don't display correctly, anymore. One of the is github. I can post screenshots, if needed. And the scrollbar now, when clicked, it doesn't scroll page by page, instead it goes where the mouse clicked. This is not how the desktop environment behaves (Xfce).
Nothing plays. The other media links are opened normally, with NoScript overlay which, removed, allows normal playback. Firefox has no problems.
Given Steve's comment below (and the reply), there may be a possibility that my system is lacking something. So what codecs does TB use and how can I check for those in my system?
