Generating Livepeer Token using Firefox


#1

Users who have tried to generate Livepeer Token using Firefox and Metamask at https://explorer.livepeer.org/token have experienced an error. It turns out that the in browser miner uses an experimental browser feature called ReadableStream (more info) which needs to be turned on by default in Firefox. You turn this on by:

  1. Visit the URL about:config in your Firefox browser.
  2. Search for dom.streams.enabled, and double click it to turn it on to true
  3. Search for javascript.options.streams, and double click it to turn it on the true

Now mining should work in Firefox. Alternatively, you can use Chrome or Brave Browser, where the feature is enabled by default.
