Hello.

I'm trying to get Firefox to stop autoplaying videos. Under the autoplay settings in Options, I have selected "Block Audio and Video." Didn't work, videos play muted. After searching for a solution, I found a suggestion to try to set the "media.autoplay.allow-muted" to false in about:config. Nothing changed, they're still playing muted.

I'm specifically referring to videos on Facebook and Twitter.

Anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks.

I usually have it set to block audio and video automatically, and when I'm watching actual videos on Youtube, yeah, I want autoplay turned off. BUT when I'm trying to just play some music, I'd like to allow it. However it's FOREVER TOGGLED OFF EVEN WHEN I SET IT TO ALLOW ALL AUDIO AND VIDEO. It will stay on for one song, and then turn it off again. I also can't allow an exception to that SPECIFIC website because it NEVER shows the blocking autoplay settings in the site info bar, and I can't manually add websites to the exceptions list. So I can't add youtube to my exceptions list, can't change the settings for the page, and even if I do it's NOT paying attention to my choice, even when set to allow for ALL websites.
