Autoplay but just block the video and keep the Volume slider the same across tabs?

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask this nor am I sure that this isn't just one of my many installed extensions being wonky -- but is there a way to keep the volume meter at the same level across tabs? More specifically, I peruse the old.reddit.com/r/livestreamfail website and I open each thread in a new tab with the option to block the audio and video from autoplaying enabled and the volume meter is always set at 0% on every embedded clip. I wish the behavior of the video player to leave the volume slider at the percentage from the last time I manipulated the volume slider from a previous clip, that way I don't need to touch the volume slider whenever I start playing the new video. Is this the behavior of the twitch video player or is there a config setting I can change to achieve the desired behavior? Shouldn't blocking video inherently block audio too? Why does autoplay option always set the volume to 0%?

I'm on updated OpenSuse Tumbleweed with Firefox version 83.0

My firefox extensions include: Facebook Container, GNOME Shell integration, Reddit Enhancement Suite, SponsorBlock for Youtube, uBlock Origin and Weather

I believe that is a website issue, YouTube is a perfect example. If I'm looking at a video and move the volume down half way, pause the video and open another video. That volume is at the same level as the 1st video.
