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?

If I use autoplay, Firefox crashes, I shut autoplay off and can't play any video clips on any sites...CATCH22

I have auto update and installation checked. I have very few sites where ABP allows ads. I have Bitdefender for antivirus. I have reset Firefox at least 5 times this past 6 weeks. This has gotten old. I have tried starting without the Add-ons, but what's the sense of having Add-ons available then? If I try to use Firefox with the autoplay feature for videos on sites like NFL.com or NASCAR.com, Firefox will in short time crash (Firefox is not responding), ..usually when I have more than 2 tabs open, but has done it with a singular tab open. As a matter of fact, it will sometimes crash before loading the page. If I use FIrefox with autoplay disabled, I can't even prompt the video to play. It doesn't even show up in the play section when prompted. So what's the sense of that? After resetting Firefox, I fail to understand why in the most viewed panel, why my most viewed aren't there after each reset? Also, why doesn't it populate my most viewed consistently? That being, if I go to the same sites all the time, why don't they show as most viewed? I get sites showing up I've only been to once in a month, instead of multiple times in a day. My final thing...why does Edge keep prompting me to install it while using Firefox? I have Edge already installed when Firefox crashes and it has a fresh install from just 2 weeks ago. But I still get these annoying notifications. I know this is long, but this is what happens when you try diligently to do as the instructions show in the Help section multiple times...only to come to the same conclusion. Can someone please help?
