There seems to be no way to set exceptions to privacy and security settings! There is a "Search Website" box but no option to "Add". There are options to "Remove" which are greyed out. I do I add an exception to Autoplay "Block Audio and Video"?

You aren't able to add exceptions using the Firefox preferences page. You can only remove or modify the autoplay level from there.

To add a website to the exception list, you need to do that from the Site Information drop-down panel. See the Site settings section of Allow or block media autoplay in Firefox.

If you don't see that permission listed in that panel when you are on the website you are trying to add to the exception list, it's probably because the website hasn't tried to play any content yet. That permission will only appear when the website tries to play content.

In that case, you can still modify the permission for that website using the Permissions tab from the Firefox Page Info window.

Hope this helps.
