I know there a quite a few os this same question, but they're old and none of their solutions work.

I have checked Block Audio and Video Autoplay in my settings, but Firefox does not block them. Audio block seems to work sometimes but video block never does.

This is extremely annoying and I need help.

Thanks.

Hi there!

I have been having trouble with Firefox continuing to autoplay videos even with preferences set to "Block Audio and Video."

If I go to twitter.com or elsewhere Firefox will show that auto play is disabled, but videos will autoplay with no audio. I would just like to get this feature working as autoplaying videos are incredibly annoying!

Thanks for any help!

Hello! My name is Russell Vaughan and I'm a Sales Engineer at GoSquared. We noticed that Firefox's Enhanced Tracking Protection now blocks our chat widget in strict mode as it is loaded from GoSquared.com

Our chat widget is not reliant on our Analytics tracking. If you block just our tracking endpoints, opposed to all of gosquared.com, our chat widget will still load and be functional. However, all tracking will still be blocked. We've worked with most of the other tracking blocking tools to solve this.

Is there any way you can help us resolve this or point us in the right direction?

I have several websites where I am a paying customer to be able to access content. On some of them when I log into their site I am not recognized as being logged in, when I open a new tab on that site. On the New York Times website it will sometimes happen when I link to individual stories from the front page, but a simple page refresh then will show I am logged in.

On my job search website though Flexjobs (at www.flexjobs.com ) it almost always opens the page as if I am not logged in. It's maddening to have to log in again and then try to find where I was!

I'm running the latest version of Firefox, and have cleared the cache.

I'm not sure when lockwise went from an optional add on to "you know what I'm just going to run myself anyway" but I already have a password manager and I want to disable Lockwise. Every article or help post I find insists Lockwise is an Addon but it's not in that list and when i go to the Logins & Passwords tab I can see what Lockwise is doing but I can't do anything about it let alone switch it off.

I've been using Lastpass for years and I'm more than happy with it and I find Lockwise competing with Lastpass and pushing itself to the front of the queu when entering passwords on sites and I don't want that.

How do I disable it please?

I haven't been able to find a way to do so, does anybody know if it's possible and how? And if it isn't how could it be requested for an upgrade?

Thank you.

If I search by highlighting text and then right click + 'search google for...' the following link address in the next page always includes the text "client=ubuntu".

As i'm using ubuntu that might not seem strange, but it's strange to me because I use this addon which is supposed to spoof my browser and O/S and also in about config I have: privacy.resistFingerprinting and "privacy.trackingprotection.fingerprinting.enabled"' both set to "true".

Can anyone tell me how google is able to detect this info?

And seeing as the about:config settings dont seem to work... how i'm able to stop it?
