    This didn't resolve anything. It feels like Discord is trying to force me to download the app.

    Firefox 48 is pretty sure that about:permissions doesn't exist.

    @Nanobang yup, this article does need updating. I'm on it!

    One way: click on "Show site information" (icon left URL textbox), then on "More Information", select Permissions Icon, scroll down to find "Use microphone", and enable it :)

    @tahr That doesn't seem to help Discord at all. It still says I need to enable my microphone.

    Voice doesn't work in browser app @ Firefox. I can see green icons, even when I talk is green. Nobody can hear me and I can't hear anyone.

    Desktop version works...

    It's easier to download to client than switching to other browser if you just wanna run Discord in browser.

     

    Still don't know why Firefox won't cooperate...

    Oh please don't tell me to download the client, I am dualbooting windows with linux and I had a lot of issues with the client on windows, running it in the firefox browser (on windows) worked flawlessly compared to the client. 

    I don't even want to try the client on a less supported OS. But hey, I don't think I have many options other than download it from AUR. Hopefully it will work.

    Oh lol, some hours later after I posted firefox released version 53 and all I needed was to upgrade my firefox and it worked.

    Looks like the latest version of firefox works great again in discord!
    Cheerios!
