How to stop firefox on Android from playing videos in new tab? I want the video to be played in the feed(of fb,say) itself.

Posted

When I click on the video, it starts plating in the new tab. And when I try to return to the previous page after watching, I lose the feed and the feeds laods afresh. I want the video to play in the single tab only without opening a new tab.

This is not an issue with Firefox for Android. It is an issue with the Facebook website. They say to open the video in a new tab instead of playing it inline.

Well, I don't think it is the problem with fb because it works fine in Chrome and even in the Firefox Focus browser. I think it something related to Mozilla Firefox configuration.
