Firefox REFUSES to stop autoplaying audio and video

I'm writing about videos autoplaying in your browser when you land on a page that has one. When I go to websites that have video windows above a story, the video and audio automatically play every time.

I have been to dozens of websites that all say how to set autoplay options to "block audio and video" but none of them work. No matter what I do, Firefox will STILL play the audio. So-called "expert users" on Firefox forums all say this should work, and that it works for THEM, but it certainly doesn't work for ME. I don't even believe them anymore.

Why can I NOT take control of MY computer and decide what I want to happen when I use Firefox? There has to be a way to stop websites from forcing MY system to do something I don't want.

Firefox 78 sometimes fails to block autoplay, e.g. scrolling the front page of reddit.com or a subreddit will intermittently show videos playing.

This worked in 77. Some about:config entries I'd swear were set in 77 have vanished; I tried adding them manually, but the autoplay blocking is still hit and miss.

Also, not sure if Troubleshooting Information uploaded successfully or the page broke (see screenshot).

Block autoplay being ignored on Firefox 78

Prior to the latest version, I had set "media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed" in about:config to False in addition to blocking both audio and video within the settings so that nothing would autoplay without my input.

I updated to version 78 yesterday, and it seems that "media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed" is now gone from within about:config. I'm getting videos autoplaying within sites like YouTube, despite me setting both audio and video to not autoplay.

Is there anything I can do to ensure that nothing starts playing without me allowing it?
