How to stop autoplay all together
As I have a lot of tabs open most of the time, they sometimes get small enough that I accidentally press the autoplay mute or unmute/play video on the tabs. This is quite annoying as 'personally', I only want my videos to be turned on when I click on the video on the website itself and not running in the background.
Is there a way to completely or just on youtube to turn off autoplay inside the tab?
(in the image where the arrow points to is what I want to takeout from the tab).

There's one solution I found that maybe can help solve the autoplay problem.
Please refer to this Allow or block media autoplay in Firefox.
Hope this article helps, have a nice day!
Hey, yes I have looked at this page but sadly it doesn't show how to turn it off, its more of "how" to use it.
I am so sorry to hear that, have you tried changing the autoplay settings? where you can block audio/video autoplay?
Yes but there is no way I found that can "turn the whole thing off"
You can look at these prefs on the the about:config page to see what settings work for you to block autoplay.
- media.autoplay.default = 5 [0:allow;1:blockAudible;2:Prompt;5:blockAll]
- media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2
- media.autoplay.allow-extension-background-pages = false
- media.autoplay.block-event.enabled = true
You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
