How do I fix keyframes if they are not working in Firefox?

1. Double-check the code

This may seem like an obvious solution, but sometimes an issue can arise from a mistake as simple as an extra space somewhere in the code. Carefully look over the code to ensure there are no misspellings, missing or added values, extra spaces, etc.

If there is no animation-duration specified, then the keyframes element will not play the animation. To set a duration, add an animation-duration rule with a set value of seconds in the same section as animation-name.

If you want a continuous loop of the CSS animation, use the animation-iteration-count rule. Either specify the number of times you want the animation to cycle or use an infinite value.

3. Remove vendor prefixes
