      Why does it seems like the VR functionallity doesn't work anymore for HTC Vive in Firefox web browser. It was working wonderfully before the the webbrowser was upgrraded. All your instructions are pointing and referring to older web browsers. What can i do to be able to se the Sketchfab objects again?
