Twilio Video JavaScript SDK: Breaking Changes in Firefox 68 (July 9, 2019)

Firefox 68 will be introducing changes which will cause applications built with Twilio Video JS SDK versions 1.18.0 and below, or 2.0.0-beta9 and below, to stop functioning correctly. Firefox 68 Participants will be unable to publish media tracks to other participants in Peer-to-Peer and Group Rooms. Chrome and Safari Participants will remain unaffected and continue to be able to publish media tracks, even in Rooms that have Firefox 68 Participants.

What is the impact timeline?

Firefox 68 is currently in Beta, and will be released on July 9, 2019. We recommend that you upgrade as soon as possible to avoid impacting your Firefox users.

Will my application be affected by this change?

If you use one of the following Twilio Video JavaScript SDK versions, then your application will be affected when running on Firefox 68 and above:

Twilio Programmable Video SDK Affected Versions Upgrade Path
Video Javascript SDK 1.x 1.18.0 and below 1.18.1 +
Video Javascript SDK 2.x 2.0.0-beta9 and below 2.0.0-beta10 + 

If you are loading the Twilio Video JavaScript library using our CDN convenience URL (1.x version only), then you will automatically get the latest version, and your application will not be affected by this change.

How can I upgrade my application?

If you are using specific versions of the Twilio Video JavaScript library through the Twilio CDN or through NPM, then you will need to upgrade to the latest versions of the Twilio Video Javascript library and re-deploy your application.

Upgrade to a newer release of the JavaScript SDK by updating your application to use one of the releases listed below:

If you're using NPM, you can update your library with the following commands:

  • 1.x: npm install twilio-video@1.18.1
  • 2.x: npm install twilio-video@2.0.0-beta10

If you are planning to upgrade twilio-video.js from 1.x to 2.x, you can refer to the migration guide.
