As reported by heise online (german), there have been glitches with the Firefox web browser since this Thursday morning, Jan. 13, 2022. All versions seem to be affected, including the latest 96.0.
As a workaround, it seems promising to disable the collection of telemetry data, i.e. remove all checkmarks from "Firefox Data collection".
Word is getting around about the existence of the KPH BigBlueButton Server, which is why we will restrict free access from now on:
- Participants in a web conference do not need their own account. It is sufficient to send the participants the event link and possibly the room access code with the invitation to a meeting.
- Before you register on the KPH BigBlueButton server, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org - we can no longer accept unannounced registrations.
- The KPH BigBlueButton Server is primarily reserved for KPH lecturers and group leaders. As far as the capacity of the server allows, meetings and events of the FB08 can also be scheduled.
All users of the KPH BigBlueButton server are asked to write a short email (with time and estimated number of participants) to email@example.com if they are planning a video conference with ≥4 participants or an audio conference with ≥20 participants . We would then like to monitor the server load. We are currently still assuming that the server can serve around 600 participants, distributed across the simultaneously active virtual rooms.
