Most of Facebook videos do not play, as if I didn't click on them!

Posted

I was scrolling the news feed in Facebook, then I noticed that almost all videos don't play automatically, so I clicked on them and the screen became wider they load for like 2 sec but then appears again the play button.

I don't think its a hardware or drivers problem because everything seems normal in Chrome and brave. I noticed that everytime I scroll to a video a small chain appear in the URL bar I clicked on it in the attached image, then un/check it but nothing change.

I tried with the following "solutions" but nothing changed: -Safe mode. -Creating a new Profile. -Uninstalling Firefox and deleting Profiles files then reinstalling it again.

I've been using Firefox since 2006 and I just don't wanna change the browser to avoid this problem.

Thank you for your prompt response.

But If disable it the videos don't play and a pop-up tells me that I have to enable it again in order to play the videos but then nothing changed.
