Little post to point out a rather inconvenient change, because thatś probably what I loved most about my Jolla

I used my jolla to listen to youtube videos on the browser which worked extremelly well even when I was in another app or if the screen was turned off. The exception was when another tab was selected, a limitation I could live with. Anyway, since the new update, the video will stop playing whenever, you are not on the multitasking page or the screen is turned off.

If I use Firefox, it works fine so this is specific to the Jolla browser

Are you sure you are not just running out of memory?

playback in background works for me too

I am advising to use YTPlayer for background playing youtube videos. You could even predownload it. Use by default 360p resolution not to vaste the Internet.

So it means that 6 people blindly upvoted without even reading your post... x) Otherwise yeah Android must be restarted from time to time especially if you have some Facebook crap running in background.

@Sthocs Yeah. And someone recently suggested that the number of votes was a way of prioritising bugs.
