PS (on 10/25/2018): I posted this question by mistake twice and the other question has been answered. To stop autoplay the setting "media.autoplay.default" has to be changed to 1.

" hi, in firefox 63 the autoplay preferences are reorganised in preparation for this feature shipping out of the box in one of the upcoming versions. in about:config you can: set media.autoplay.default to 1 in order to block automatic playback on all pages or set it to 2 to decide on a per domain basis.

Cheers!
