So, I DON'T want Firefox to block autoplaying of videos, as I like to put on Youtube playlists and work and it isn't feasible for me to rush over to my laptop and click every time the video changes.
I have the latest versions of Firefox (67.0.4).
I have gone to Options, Privacy & Security, and unchecked the box next to "Block websites from automatically playing sound". This did nothing. It still blocks Youtube videos from playing until I click on the video window.
I also went to the about:config page. All the settings there seem to be the opposite of what other users have used to disable autoplay (since I want to enable it). Pic attached to show which settings I have been looking at.
I have also gone to the exceptions page and added Youtube as an exception. Firefox still is not allowing autoplay (with and without the "Block websites..." box checked).
Does someone know of something I am missing? This only occurred after the 66 update, and I've been trying to undo it as it is becoming very annoying for me.
I have tested the same videos on Chrome and Edge (neither of which I prefer to use, hence trying to fix Firefox), and they play right away with no problems.
I will state that some videos do play automatically, but it is not often and is very sporadic.
