Just had this as well. Purchased online but the Sims reset. The fireworks task for NY still gets fulfilled though.

I'm having this same issue, where my sims are unable to light fireworks, they can walk up to the firework, light it, but then they reset and exit out of the animation with the firework unlit and reset as well. It seems to be associated with another issue, where I cannot click to build rocketships (none of the model types work) as described already in this issue: [OPEN] Can't build a rocket https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/OPEN-Can-t-build-a-rocket/m-p/10541363/highlight/true#M192075

 

I can share an unmodded save as well if that helps.

I play on pc, have all packs and don't use cc or mods. I have experienced the same thing. My sims took fireworks to a community lot. When they tried to light them, they did a T pose, reset and the fireworks remained unlit. The holiday tradition was completed though.

I have the exact same problem.

When I click on any firework from City Living, just doesn't work

PS: Still needs save?

Same issue although it’s not completing the city native requirement. I’ve tried fireworks and sparklers. The sparklers light but do not complete the aspiration task.
