How to prevent video playback from getting paused when switching to another tab on Firefox for Android?

Posted

In Firefox for Android 27.0, if you play video in one tab and while it's playing you switch to another tab, the video gets paused. I want the video to continue to play while I'm viewing another tab (so I can at least hear its sound!).

How can I do that? How can I prevent Firefox for Android from pausing video playback when switching to another tab?

Thank you very much.

Hi hamid_ss,

Currently Firefox for Android does this by default with embedded players. Some sites go automatically to full screen too which may be what you are running into. Try it.
