I have installed Fedora 27 and am using the WhatsApp Web version through Mozilla Firefox. I am facing issues with downloading and viewing videos sent by someone. It appears with the "Download" button, but when I click on it, nothing happens.

Well the possibilities for that problem are pretty broad... do you see anything seemingly-related when you check out sudo journalctl -r right after the problem happens?

I'll take a look and will post if I see something related.

[system] Failed to activate service 'org.bluez': timed out (servicestarttimeout=25000ms)

Could this be related to the issue I am having?

Found the solution! Had to install the video codec for Mozilla to make it work.
