Youtube autoplay stopped to work properly.

After previous video next video really starts automatically then, may be after half a second or second, the video stops and returns to intro splash screen of the video. One must press Play to start this next video again. I tried next steps: 1. In Firefox Privacy and security settings / Autoplay: I allowed audio and video autoplay for all sites 2. On the left side of URL string for Youtube site I pressed the button and also allowed audio and video autoplay for the site. The image on this button changed. I reloaded Youtube - no effect, reloaded Firefox and Youtube - all the same.

3. I checked Youtube autoplay in Microsoft Edge browser - it works correctly.

What should be done in Firefox to restore autoplay? I don't remember when this problem appeared.

This problem appears to be not only for autoplay, but for start of any video: it starts then stops after 1s. I posted appropriate question here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1400958 and got helpfull answer from Mich:

>>4)Check for any extensions or plugins...

It was 'Easy Youtube Video Downloader Express' extension, I setted it OFF to solve the problem.
