Calls support in Firefox (Mozilla)
From our perspective it is really instrumental for people to use Firefox and still join our calls. There are some clients of ours who only use Firefox and we cannot force them to go through hops to join calls (like installing Chrome or Teams just to talk to us once). Please add that support! Thank you very much in advance!

That's precisely the sort of behaviour that makes me go out of my way to avoid using MS Office whenever I can.

add support for firefox in teams

I naively figured, "surely this must be an issue with the newest version of Firefox, since I rarely see modern browsers fail to work with enterprise software." Yet here we are! Wild to me that a basic feature of an application that has been in the limelight just doesn't work at all with one of the most popular browsers, despite complaints spanning over two years.

⚠ Microsoft will be moving away from UserVoice sites on a product-by-product basis throughout the 2021 calendar year.

This is very important feature for privacy conscious Firefox users.
Please add support for Firefox. It isn't going anywhere.

It should be supported as Firefox supports App Containers.
It will be helpful that an Admin of Microsoft do giving a statement to this idea.
- Will the full support for Firefox be implemented?
- If yes when it is planned for Rollout/Release?
It is very importand because not everyone will be use Google Chrome the biggest data collector of the internet. Microsoft Edge has a problem to remember the microphone and speaker settings. After every start of Edge with Teams I have to choose my Headset again and again.
Other browsers are not allowed in our organization.

It drives me crazy, as a professor actively encouraged to use Firefox by my university that MS Teams won't screenshare Firefox .

Any news on this? In 2020 Teams still doesn't support Firefox
Andrei Petcu commented
This is why I use Zoom. Zoom just works on the web in Firefox.
Still no update on when Teams is compatible with Firefox?
Lack of support for this is making using Teams very difficult
Locking out Firefox is anti-competitive. Teams must fully support it like they do with Chromium browsers.
Long live the open web!!

Standards make the web stronger.

support an open and healthy web.
I understand the economical decision to support the poor and broken WebRTC implementation of Chromium, due to its market share. On the other hand, with the resources Microsoft has, the right way really should have been to help Google engineers fix their implementation, and then implement these features according to the established sandard. Then, it would work on *proper*, standards-compliant browsers like Firefox, and any current and future alternatives, automatically, without Microsoft continuing to have to implement and maintain dirty workarounds in order to fix problems caused by incompetencies of Google engineering. Rather than help Google turn Chrome into the new IE6, it would be the right thing to do for Microsoft to defend, maintain and support web standards, rather than proprietary bricolages of a competitor.
