Feature request: option to prevent videos from shifting after scrolling

Many, many websites now have this behavior: at the top of an article or blog post is an embedded video. (Or sometimes, partway through.) Scrolling past the video causes it to jump to a sticky position in the lower right corner of the window. (See attached screenshot.) Also, even if various disable-autoplay boxes are ticked in my settings, the shifted video will always start playing.

Granted, most sites provide a little "X" to close the video. At worst, there is the pause option. But still, it's an annoyance to have to do this on soooo many sites, every time I visit to read something.

Key word there: read.

My point is: if I wanted to watch the video, I would have, when it was right there in front of me. Since I have scrolled past it, this ought to be an indication that I do not want to watch the video.

So, the request is some sort of option in Settings that would prevent this behavior. Enabling it would do nothing else to the page except prevent the behavior as described.

Thanks for listening!

Opening a fixed mini player automatically is a feature offered by the website and is created via JavaScript if the main player is scrolled out of view. A lot of websites now have a fixed (pop-up) mini player in one the corners once you start playing a video that stays visible if you scroll the page. This website mini player shouldn't be confused with the Firefox PiP (picture-in-picture) feature (you likely see the Firefox PiP icon if you hover the mini player).

You can look at these prefs in about:config to see what settings work for you to block media auto-play.

  • media.autoplay.default = 5 [0:allow;1:blockAudible;5:blockAll]
  • media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2
  • media.autoplay.allow-extension-background-pages => false
  • media.autoplay.block-event.enabled => true
  • media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground

You can open about:config via the address/location bar. You can read the warning and click "Accept the Risk and Continue".

Many sites use sticky videos for displaying pre-roll ads, they know it is annoying but video ads are highly profitable. If you block ads the sticky behavior remains.

You can hide them with the PopUpOFF extension.
