@kev @mike
Do you know anything about what's going on with attachment previews in Masto?

@amolith I'm with @kev on that one. Can you be a little bit more specific?

@mike @kev I thought it would be easiest to take a video:
sea.nixnet.xyz/f/26e9bd5d93c84

The only indication that there is any media attached is greying out the "Toot" and "Add media" buttons and adding the "Mark media as sensitive" button. There's no longer a preview or the option to crop or add a description. Is it just me having this issue? Or is it a new "feature" that seems, to me, more like an anti-feature lol?

@amolith @kev Hmmm, I don't see that at all. I haven't heard of anybody else having that issue either. You might be the only lucky one experiencing that one.

@mike @kev Wonderful to know I'm special 😂

Any ideas for how to fix it?

@amolith I don't have any unique insight for you unfortunately. Just standard stuff. Clear cookies and cache. Test with another browser to see if it's coming from FF or if it's something larger. Maybe disable any adblock or javascript block extensions that might be messing with anything in the background and see if that fixes it. If it does, re-enable one at a time till you isolate the culprit. I don't know, @kev might have some better ideas.

@mike @amolith it may be an issue with the latest mastodon release. Not at a machine to test myself currently.

@kev @amolith I'd be surprised. I tested (confused baby) with the web interface on my computer, and I didn't have any issues. I guess we can't rule it out though, and @hugo might know something more or at least have seen this issue before and know how to resolve it.

@mike @kev @hugo

It was my favourite extension that broke it 😭

addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

It's all fixed now though. I didn't even think about addons being the culprit.
