Dragging a link to a new tab (i.e. Youtube) does not preserve autoplay blocking settings.

As said in title. I like to drag links/youtube videos to new tabs instead of right clicking/middle click. The problem with this is that these tabs autoplay after a short amount of time without me switching to them, whereas right click/middle click do not (since I have autoplay on unfocused tabs blocked). This problem persists in troubleshoot mode.

I have tried the site-specific autoplay permissions, but I still want to keep the 'switching focus to new tab autoplays content', and I do not want to have to press play if I use firefox's site-specific blocked autoplay.
