Firefox is one of the first and most well-known open-source web browsers created by the Mozilla Foundation.

The performance of video playback and the quality of video scaling were both improved with the release of version 110.0 on February 14, 2023. Also, the fullscreen notification not shown in Firefox Focus has been fixed.

Microsoft Teams throwing ‘browser unsupported’ error on Firefox

Yet it appears that there is a problem with Microsoft Teams on the Firefox web browser, since some users are unable to access it (1,2,3).

Firefox is a supported browser, as noted on the official Microsoft website where it was under development for a while, even if there hasn’t been an official announcement yet.

Nevertheless, as of late, some Firefox users are encountering an error stating that their ‘browser unsupported’ each time they attempt to enter Microsoft Teams on teams.live.com.

In the Business/Enterprise (teams.microsoft.com) domain, this is not the case as everything appears to function normally.

Issue acknowledged

Fortunately, a Mozilla engineer confirmed that it’s a known issue and Microsoft is working on it. However, no ETA for a fix was shared.

Potential workaround

There is a potential workaround, though, in which you need to utilize a ‘user agent switcher‘ to appear to be using a browser other than Firefox.

A few users report that it works with Firefox v110.0, therefore you might try updating to that version. Additionally, disable any ad blockers that may be causing this problem.
