On many sites like Forbes and Accuweather, videos automatically start playing when I load the site. Not only is this annoying, the video also draws unnecessary bandwidth when I tether from my Verizon smartphone. Is there any way through Firefox to prevent autoplay of videos on websites? There used to be a plugin available, but no longer. http://just-ask-kim.com/stop-auto-play-videos-audios-firefox/

Then search for:
Double click and it will be set to true.
