Why won't Firefox COMPLETELY block video autoplay?

After following all the suggestions found by searching video autoplay, Firefox currently still autoplays videos with the sound muted. This is in websites other than those like YouTube, such as news websites and the like. What I REALLY want is to COMPLETELY PREVENT automatic playback of any of these videos, and if necessary, whitelist domains like YouTube to allow autoplay. Is this even feasible?

In Windows 10 I have highlighted both auto correct and highlight mis-spelled words in Settings>Devices etc but it doesn't make any difference. Typing mistakes do not show up. Outlook help tells me that spelling checkers are available in Firefox but how do I turn them on? And if I am using Firefox as my browser but am in hotmail, will it work in hotmail? I am at a loss and your hlep would be appreciated. Thanks, Anthony

I made the big mistake of refreshing Firefox thinking it would solve another issues. Now all of my bookmarks are gone. I've tried the show all bookmarks, import and restore thing but I don't get a date to click on, it just takes me to my desktop folder. What am I doing wrong? I also did a system restore on my computer hoping that would help, but it didn't. I'm clearly not very good at this.

I am trying to get content from washingtonpost.com . They need me to disable tracker blocking. The standard help screen (capped below) says to just click the button labeled "Turn off Blocking for This Site." Only trouble is, no such button actually exists on the information popup screen (Clicking the circled 'i'). The popup screen I get looks exactly like the one in the help, except for the missing button. I have tried all the suggestions in other posts and none of them work. I notice I am not the only one with this problem. Is it possible my install of Firefox is corrupted? But nothing else I have noticed is wrong. I am running Firefox quantum 68.0.1 under Ubuntu xcfe.

Cannot send secure message to bank while logged in to my bank account. I get a title saying "undefined" and when I go to log off the two buttons for confirm or remain logged on have no text and the title "undefined" is there. However those buttons do actually work. I have logged on to banking using Microsoft Edge and everything worked just fine.

I'm getting a PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR when trying to visit a site I've gone to scads of times and strongly believe to be valid today.

Is there any sort of workaround that would allow me to get to this site?

(And, BTW, why does Firefox absurdly tell me to inform the web site about this error when the error prevents me from getting to the web site?)

How do I fix this? My weblinks saved to my Windows PC do not open to the webpage but to a print prompt

For instance, saving a webpage from either Firefox or Google Chrome (same problem with both, but NOT with IE), when I highlight the link, it says (at the bottom of the folder where the link resides), "Internet Shortcut." but instead of opening into my default (Firefox) brower, it opens to a Print prompt, as if I commanded the link to print. There is no right click option to OPEN WITH when I right click on one of these corrupted links. This is really a nuisance. What can I do to fix it?
