There is information on
<https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/get-clients>; that
should assist you. It clearly states that "FIREFOX" is NOT SUPPORTED.
"Spoofing" a user agent is a waste of time. "You cannot make a silk
purse out of a sow's ear." Now, Google Chrome, the latest version plus
two previous versions are FULLY SUPPORTED. Install that and then see
what happens.

By the way, I made a suggestion on the TEAMS page that FreeBSD should
be supported since they support Linux. I have already received a couple
of "Thumbs UP" responses.
