Youtube videos no longer autoplay when switching to the tab
I always had no problem middle mouse clicking a video in Youtube and then going to the tab and it would autoplay now I have to manually click play when I switch to the tab. This is very annoying. If I have 4 videos bookmarked in a folder I would always be able to middle click the folder and when I went to the videos one by one they would auto play but not anymore. How do I fix this? The problem just started today
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:67.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/67.0
This is because of Firefox's new video autoplay blocking setting. You either need to block the feature entirely or grant YouTube permission to autoplay videos.
For more information, see Allow or block media autoplay in Firefox.
Hope this helps.
Thank you so much !! 100 % works fine now
