Workspace can become stuck for consulted agents if the consulting agent marks the chat as Done while the consultation chat is still active.


  • The consulted agent should refresh their browser to make the Mark Done button become available to close the consultation chat.
  • To prevent this scenario, the consulting agent should end the consultation chat before ending the chat with the contact.
ID: HTCC-30244 Found In: Fixed In:

Limitation: Mozilla Firefox 58 introduced the Background Tabs Throttling feature that reduces the availability of CPU cycles to 1% for web applications in tabs that are not currently in focus or if the browser is minimized.

This feature can cause real-time disconnection of interactions (calls) and can cause notifications of incoming interactions to be delayed. If the tab does not have the focus for a long time, Workspace might consider the session to be down.


  • Disable the feature in Firefox using the following procedure:
    1. Enter about:config in the address bar and press Enter to launch the Firefox application preferences page.
    2. Click the I accept the risk! button to dismiss the warning message.
    3. Enter dom.timeout.enable_budget_timer_throttling in the search bar to find the timer throttling option.
    4. Double-click true in the Value column to change the preference setting to false.
    5. Restart your browser and log back in to Workspace.
  • Or, agents must open Workspace in a separate browser window without any other tabs open and never minimize the window. There is no issue if this browser window is in the background;
  • Or, agents should use a browser other than Firefox.

  • Encrypted media extensions (requestMediaKeySystemAccess)
  • Microphone, Camera (getUserMedia).

If one of these features is required, use one of the following solutions:
