I turned off autoplay in about:config but after today's update to 63.0 all videos are autoplaying. Has Firefox been paid by advertisers to force autoplay videos down our throat no matter what? Why is this browser so awful now?

Firefox 63 (macOS) lets YouTube videos start automatically in spite of "media.autoplay.enabled" being set to "false."

Can that be fixed, please?

I reverted for now to v62.0.3 and the videos do - as before updating to v63 - not automatically start. That hints strongly to v63 being the culprit here.

As of yesterday videos would only play if asked. installed latest update today 10/26/2018 0630MDT. Now I have to manually stop the videos. I had ALREADY used the link "about:config" on previous versions & that worked. The line "media.autoplay.enabled" is already set to "false". This glitch happened as soon as I installed the latest update.

Hello, I would like to stop certain porn sites from playing videos in a window that they are able to open and hide behind the open window. This appears to be a major flaw to allow this. I do not know what this is called in the settings.

Until today the options for stopping videos auto playing worked OK, suddenly they don't work at all. I had changed all the settings in about:config - please see screen shot attached - a couple of weeks ago when they suddenly started auto playing and that solved the issue, but now I am back to square one. Even when I have ensured that the autoplay option is changed in the preferences section they are still auto-playing. Any suggestions please as this is driving me crazy!

Thanks in advance for your help. It is much appreciated.

Hi. I just noticed that my browser had auto-updated itself to version 63.0, and now, videos on Youtube and news sites auto-play, even though I have it disabled in About:Config. Until today, all html5 videos were being blocked just fine by that setting. Why is this happening and what can I do to re-block videos from auto-playing?

In the past few days, the block video autoplay option is not working. It had been working properly for years. I have video autoplay turned off in about:config and the option to block autoplay is no longer available under the settings menu. What settings need to be changed to re-enable this in the update. This is extremely annoying.

I have u block origin already.

I had media autoplay set to false. Now yahoo.com news autoplays vids (again). The autoplay literally started on October 24, 2018. 1- what happened to allow autoplay on yahoo when it was successfully blocked all this time? 2- what can I do to stop video autoplay? Idiot level instructions please- set one go here type instructions. I already went the "add on" route. Flash blockers didn't work at all. All other "vid blockers" are for youtube and will not work on yahoo news as I tried hoping one would work.

Maybe I am stupid, but exactly WHAT settings are needed to stop autoplay on yahoo.com that are in ublock origin or in firefox about: config settings (media.autoplay =false), which doesn't seem to have any effect anymore. Is something else in about:config needed?

Site example where annoy vid autoplay now exists: https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/dont-want-attention-mother-6-year-old-boy-whose-birthday-party-guests-no-shows-speaks-185110033.html
