I'm on Linux, and updated to Firefox 66 yesterday. I was looking forward to the new feature that disallows websites auto-playing videos. But I found that it's not the case. For example, https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-19/how-an-extra-man-in-cockpit-saved-a-737-max-that-later-crashed still starts playing the video automatically. This is just one of the many I've tried so far.

Am I missing any settings? There was none I could find having done a quick search on the preference page.

I just upgraded to ver 66.0 and thought one of the features was to not allow autoplay. I'm still getting autoplay, on yahoo.com, (and other sites) even after adding block in exceptions. I thought it would be disabled. What must I do?
