Every site - every popup plays with audio. It used to work just fine. Had an update and nothing is working properly. I am annoyed.

Chosen solution

Robert -- Thanks so very much for your help and advice, but especially for making the instructions so clear. It solved my problem and I am very grateful. I am, just wondering why setting things properly in Autoplay didn't work for me.

But thanks so much again, and for seeing my post and responding to me in such a timely way! -- Kind regards, Randi

Hi TheRReport,

Type (or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter select "Accept the Risk and Continue"

in the search field, enter media.autoplay.default double click on the line and set the value to 5 then enter media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed and double-click the line to toggle it's value to False

then, do these others: media.autoplay.allow-extension-background-pages = false media.autoplay.block-event.enabled = true media.autoplay.block-webaudio = true

The settings in Autoplay work for me. Maybe some people need a little more customization to suit their particular browsing. That's why the Advanced Preferences are there.

Anyway, I'm glad I could help.
