FF pausing videos if more than one is playing on separate tabs

more options

I don't remember with which version of Firefox for Linux this issue started; but I cannot play multiple videos at once. If I open two tabs with video sources one of the videos will automatically pause if I start watching the second one.

I have tried disabling my add-ons but the issue persists and I don't think there should be any reason for any of them interfering with videos.

Currently running Firefox 120.0 (64-bit - Arch Linux)

Try keeping both videos visible in separate windows or Picture-in-Picture.

Does it still happen in a new profile without signing into Sync? An easy way to test a new profile is to install Developer Edition and see if it happens there or refresh your existing profile.

I have no issues. Here's a video of my tabs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQbQysJGgLY Try downloading Firefox from Mozilla. Download, unzip, and run firefox-bin from the folder and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

Maybe look at this pref:

  • about:config => media.suspend-background-video.enabled

Refreshing did the trick. Thank you
