Xubuntu, PaleMoon 27

Hi,
sometimes video links that work fine in FF won't do so with PM, see example from Newegg,

Start Pale Moon from the terminal with "Pale Moon -p" (minus quotes). You will then have the option to create a new profile.

because it's an easy way to see if the error is down to the browser or modifications you/your addons made to the current profile

I see.
I created a new, clean, profile but the issue persists.
It only happens here and there but if forces me to open FF which is annoying.

Newegg Tv videos works just fine here (html5).
It was a lot whitelisting in uBO+uMatrix (youtube,ytimg,google,etc)

Do you have FFmpeg installed on your system?

can confirm OP's post, i have the same error on both my current and a fresh profile. most likely the same possibly related to the issue described in this thread

viewtopic.php?f=37&t=14783

Off-topic:
Sorry for 'crowding', I'm on Win 10 (supposed that you Linux guys using add blockers too)
Except ASIO4ALL I haven't no extra codecs/drivers installed on my system. No single one.

I have FFmpeg installed.
I also checked the options under preferences/content/video, but no difference.

That's odd--those are embedded Youtube videos. What happens if you click on the Youtube icon in the video window? Does it play in Youtube then?

You also just say PM 27...is that 27.1.0?

There is no icon (the first image is FF, the second Palemoon)
PM is on the latest version, 27.1.0

Version 27.1.2 but the issue still there.
Also, some sites with heavy visual content like newegg, amazon, youtube, load in hi-cups, with parts of the page reloading time and time again until full, very annoying.
