#StackBounty: #firefox #bluetooth #d-bus #playerctl #mpris firefox disappears from playerctl

Bounty: 100

OS is Debian 10. Firefox version is latest in repos, 78.13.0esr.

Trying to use playerctl with bluetooth buttons to control playback in firefox.

Everything is working fine, I’m away from my desk, pausing and unpausing playback in firefox works as expected.

Suddenly, pause/unpause stops working. I return to my desk, and the output of playerctl -l doesn’t show firefox anymore. The problem is either playerctl, firefox, or something else, but the actual bluetooth button works. (checked with xev)

Pausing and unpausing the playback in firefox manually with the mouse causes playerctl -l to detect firefox again.

How do I fix this?
