Youtube playlist videos won't play continuously after 2-3 video

Hello, everyone.

4-5 days ago, I've noticed weird YouTube playlist behavior. When I start playlist and switch to a different tab (or minimize browser) first video will play normally and it will autoplay the next one. But after finishing playing 2d video (3d in some cases) video will just stop at the end of playbar and not autoplay the next one in playlist. Playlist for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giUY_pEKTzY&list=OLAK5uy_nKmglmCCbx14WeFyH8e7YGYcL5skYwnp0&index=1

It's rather easy to replicate, I can record desktop video if needed.

Expected behavior: I can start YouTube playlist playing and switch to a different tab or minimize browser and playlist will only stop after playing last video in said playlist (unless "Loop playlist" option is enabled).

What I've tried to do so far: 1) Googling: I only was able to find old thread and the culprit was extension: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/952608 2) Disabling Extensions and confirming issue in Troubleshoot Mode: Did not help 3) Clear cache & cookies for YouTube: Did not help 4) "Allow Audio and Video" autoplay for YouTube: Did not help 5) Confirming issue in another browser: Works as intended in Opera 6) Checking about:config: I'm not that savvy with Firefox config to understand what may cause an issue. Tried to change media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground to False. Did not help, rolled it back to True.

What I have noticed: 1) Firefox recent update: 118.0.2 October 10, 2023: Correlates when I started experiencing this issue. 2) YouTube playlists plays next video continuously just fine if I don't minimize browser or switch to a different tab. 3) There is a Firefox extension that does exactly what I don't want in my experience: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/no-playlist-autoplay-for-yt/ I installed it just to check. And yes, it does what expected and it is similar to what I'm experiencing. Although it stops playlist after finishing first video, my issues go into the affect after playing first video. (Deleted it after testing)

Before posting I've tried a few different things and here where things gets extremely weird: 1) It works just fine in Firefox if I log out from my YouTube account: (Incognito/Main tab) Do not work if I'm logged in, even in Incognito. However... 2) It works just fine in Opera if I'm logged in my YouTube account. 3) It works just fine if I open playlist in mini-player. (Current workaround)

After all that weirdness I attempted to Clear cache & cookies for YouTube and it did not help once again.

P.S. Yes, I use YouTube as a music player. :)

When a playlist is loaded and played on YouTube, the next video in the playlist should automatically start playing once the current video reaches its end. This feature is commonly known as autoplay. However, I couldn't get it to work consistently. When the current video is finished, next video is loaded normally but where it should automatically play it doesn't.

I have tried below to address this issue:

  • Autoplay next video works in safe mode.
  • "allow audio and video" in autoplay permissions in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay doesn't help
  • I have also set media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground preference to false in about:config but didn't help
  • I have tried uninstalling all extensions and it didn't help
  • Tried logging out of youtube, but this didn't seem to help with the issue.
  • Tried "Clear startup cache" in "more troubleshooting information" menu, didn't help
  • Tried "Refresh Firefox" which didn't help

Thank you.

I'm a regular user of community.signalusers.org, which is a community forum for users of the Signal messaging platform. The website uses the open-source Discourse application to host the community forum.

Often, however, Firefox fails to load the website. The webpage begins to load, but doesn't move beyond the page you see in the screenshot.

I suspect this has to do with Discourse because another website that uses it (0x00sec.org) also doesn't load.

Both these websites load just fine on Google Chrome. I have attached Screenshots of both. Not sure if there any debug logs or such that I can attach that might be useful here.

I'm accessing the websites from a OnePlus 6T running Android 11. I'm running the latest Firefox beta. This issue is also not 100% reproducible, unfortunately, so it's that much more annoying. It occurs seemingly randomly, and then seems to fix itself at some point, only to break again.

Happy to provide more info, if needed.

When you open a link from the sidebar while holding ctrl, firefox opens it in a new tab and switches to it immediately; whereas when you click a link from a webpage with ctrl, it does not switch to the new tab (unless you hold shift as well, or check "When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately" in settings > general > tabs). I would like if firefox does not automatically switch to opened links from the sidebar (history, bookmark, etc.), when I open them with ctrl? (I know I can hold shift to do that, but I was wondering if there might be a preference in about:config to change the reverse this behaviour for sidebars)


Thanks, Ibr.

Took me a long time to nail this issue down. Recently (past 1-2 years?), Firefox has started suggesting the base website when you have bookmarks that include the base domain - and it's really bothersome from a UX perspective. E.g. if i have "adobe.com/express" or any other adobe bookmarks, the FIRST autocompleted url Firefox gives me is "adobe.com" which I DO NOT have as a bookmark. In my Firefox settings I also have Shortcuts and other search suggestions disabled.

Why is Firefox doing this?

Since 117(Beta)I have an issue with Firefox refusing to apply the update it downloaded. I've tried searching left and right on the internet for a solution and one does work which is installing the newer version of the browser each time myself. But this is ofcourse not a solution in the long run.

It tries now to apply the update 118b9 to stable version 118 and it did downloaded just fine and asked me if I wanted to close the program to let it update which always worked. I've tried different DNS to see if that could be the problem, tried a clean default profile to see if that helped, I haven't tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it, due to me losing my passwords and what not.

I also tried to run the stable version to see if the issue was still there and it is still there, so me using the beta channel isn't the issue here.

Even though Recently Visited is turned off I have lots and lots of recently visited sites showing up on my homepage. I have to manually remove them to clear the homepage. How do I make it stop showing all this clutter?

It happens on both me and my girlfriends phones, so I guess either something is wrong with the setting or it doesn't do what I think it is supposed to do.

See screenshots for example.

I'm not really sure how to categorize this question, so I labeled it Other.

I use Firefox v118.0b9 with Windows 11 and the clipboard api works as expected. However, I have a friend in Denmark that uses Firefox v117.0.1 with Windows 10. He tells me that the copy to clipboard function that works for me doesn't work for him.

Anyone using the same version as he is can check it out here:

https://wayneca.neocities.org/Sokoban/DATA/Original/O01.html

There are 5 buttons with copy icons. Each copies a specific puzzle solution or the puzzle itself. Is there a reason it does not work with that version of Firefox but does work with the version I use?
