Block autoplay being ignored on Firefox 78

Prior to the latest version, I had set "media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed" in about:config to False in addition to blocking both audio and video within the settings so that nothing would autoplay without my input.

I updated to version 78 yesterday, and it seems that "media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed" is now gone from within about:config. I'm getting videos autoplaying within sites like YouTube, despite me setting both audio and video to not autoplay.

Is there anything I can do to ensure that nothing starts playing without me allowing it?

I have auto update and installation checked. I have very few sites where ABP allows ads. I have Bitdefender for antivirus. I have reset Firefox at least 5 times this past 6 weeks. This has gotten old. I have tried starting without the Add-ons, but what's the sense of having Add-ons available then? If I try to use Firefox with the autoplay feature for videos on sites like NFL.com or NASCAR.com, Firefox will in short time crash (Firefox is not responding), ..usually when I have more than 2 tabs open, but has done it with a singular tab open. As a matter of fact, it will sometimes crash before loading the page. If I use FIrefox with autoplay disabled, I can't even prompt the video to play. It doesn't even show up in the play section when prompted. So what's the sense of that? After resetting Firefox, I fail to understand why in the most viewed panel, why my most viewed aren't there after each reset? Also, why doesn't it populate my most viewed consistently? That being, if I go to the same sites all the time, why don't they show as most viewed? I get sites showing up I've only been to once in a month, instead of multiple times in a day. My final thing...why does Edge keep prompting me to install it while using Firefox? I have Edge already installed when Firefox crashes and it has a fresh install from just 2 weeks ago. But I still get these annoying notifications. I know this is long, but this is what happens when you try diligently to do as the instructions show in the Help section multiple times...only to come to the same conclusion. Can someone please help?

Firefox 78 sometimes fails to block autoplay, e.g. scrolling the front page of reddit.com or a subreddit will intermittently show videos playing.

This worked in 77. Some about:config entries I'd swear were set in 77 have vanished; I tried adding them manually, but the autoplay blocking is still hit and miss.

Also, not sure if Troubleshooting Information uploaded successfully or the page broke (see screenshot).

I have never been able to get autoplay options to prevent blasting out audio when stumbling onto a malicious website like CNN. This is a major privacy problem as perhaps you don't want the world to know you are studying how to seek legal or medical help etc with audio blasting out at max level.

I don't know why this is so hard to manage since detecting loud audio isn't that difficult and it seems like browsers have all sort of hooks into media features of the operating systems they run on.

Can't firefox take samples of the audio (we don't need advanced signal processing here), determine that it is blasting out, and kill it?

In any case I have never been able to get any impact from autoplay settings other than to screw up my browsing experience so bad I have to reset to defauts to even manually play a video.

Addins like no script are so restrictive they render browsing impossible.

Okay, so before, when I loaded up 100+ Youtube videos, they stayed when switching tabs - no autoplay. Suddenly they decide to autoplay when switching tabs - note, I've not done anything to my settings or plugins. Fair enough, maybe you changed something (which you often do, without informing). So I check the options. It was on "Block audio", which obviously didn't work, so I tried "Block Audio and Video" - which WORKS, but now both the video is paused (which I want) AND the audio is set to mute (which I DON'T want) - so... what does it take to have Youtube wait for a click to start playing a video loaded in a background tab, but KEEP AUDIO ACTIVE, so I don't also have to unmute the damn video?

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 have u block origin already.

I had media autoplay set to false. Now yahoo.com news autoplays vids (again). The autoplay literally started on October 24, 2018. 1- what happened to allow autoplay on yahoo when it was successfully blocked all this time? 2- what can I do to stop video autoplay? Idiot level instructions please- set one go here type instructions. I already went the "add on" route. Flash blockers didn't work at all. All other "vid blockers" are for youtube and will not work on yahoo news as I tried hoping one would work.

Maybe I am stupid, but exactly WHAT settings are needed to stop autoplay on yahoo.com that are in ublock origin or in firefox about: config settings (media.autoplay =false), which doesn't seem to have any effect anymore. Is something else in about:config needed?

Site example where annoy vid autoplay now exists: https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/dont-want-attention-mother-6-year-old-boy-whose-birthday-party-guests-no-shows-speaks-185110033.html

In the past few days, the block video autoplay option is not working. It had been working properly for years. I have video autoplay turned off in about:config and the option to block autoplay is no longer available under the settings menu. What settings need to be changed to re-enable this in the update. This is extremely annoying.

I tried all the support answers, about:config, autoplay default set to 0, 1, 2, set all the media autoplay options to prevent videos from autoplaying, to no avail. Nothing works! I love firefox but autoplay videos are very annoying. I hope you are able to provide a solution for me. I read it will be in options soon but I have little faith anything will work since I've tried every suggestion.

I finally some months ago had managed to stop Firefox 63 (plus 64 and 65) from playing videos (i. e. on YouTube) automatically. In the course of finding the solution for this I had been told here in the forum that "no autoplay" would become the default in a future version of Firefox.

One or two days ago I then read that Firefox 66 would finally do this. Great. However, after updating to Firefox 66 videos on YouTube play again (unlike in my Firefox 65 with modified settings) automatically and with sound - blissfully ignoring the setting "Block websites from automatically playing sound" in the Firefox preferences.

With all due respect: Is this a joke? It was possible before to disable autoplay, now not anymore - what's the progress here? What is good about disabling the disabling of autoplay? And, no, youtube.com is not in my exceptions list (nothing is).

How can this be fixed?

Hi,

Just when life was tripping along nicely and all Yahoo's videos had been prevented from auto-play, along comes the latest version of FF -- Version 66.0 which appears to have thrown AdBlock & AdBlockPlus into turmoil and released their hold on the videos.

Any knowledge about this, or should I be looking elsewhere for the cause?

Best regards,

Ian

On a Mozilla How-To page (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay), instructions are given for going to Permissions under Privacy and Security to easily select to allow or not allow autoplay of videos.

But on FF 64, that feature simply doesn't exist! (See uploaded image compared to image on the above linked Mozilla help page.)

I'm seeing a couple somewhat recent discussions about stopping autoplay in Yahoo, but it's a bit above my head, as there are configurations talked about that I don't know how to start doing.

Also, it's unclear to me in those discussions if Mozilla intentionally got rid of this easy-to-do setting, and if so why, and if it plans to bring it back or what.

In the meantime, what exactly do I do to stop autoplay of videos?

Until today the options for stopping videos auto playing worked OK, suddenly they don't work at all. I had changed all the settings in about:config - please see screen shot attached - a couple of weeks ago when they suddenly started auto playing and that solved the issue, but now I am back to square one. Even when I have ensured that the autoplay option is changed in the preferences section they are still auto-playing. Any suggestions please as this is driving me crazy!

Thanks in advance for your help. It is much appreciated.

Hi all,

After searching and applying several settings, I am still getting those annoying messages, popups and whatsoever. No matter what I do. I always preferred Firefox as my most favorable browser for many, many years, however I noticed that I started using Chrome more and more because of all these little annoyances.

The last few things I tried are:

about:config dom.webnotifications.enabled (false) dom.push.enabled (false) dom.webnotifications.serviceworker.enabled (false) (for notifications)

about:config media.autoplay.allow-muted (false) media.autoplay.default (2) (for autoplay media)

These ones didn't help: media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed (false) media.autoplay.ask-permission (false)

Though media doesn't autoplay, I do get a notifcation about if I want to play the media or something similar. Sigh.

Also the help page on Firefox doesn't help at all, like this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay For example; I don't have the "For websites that autoplay sound"-option at all there. See screenshot included.

So what I am trying to here (maybe someone can give me the exact config options):

1. Disable permantly the auto-play function for all media and for all websites 2. Disable every single notification type; I don't want to be asked if I want to play media/sound/music, nor do I want to be asked if I want website notifications or any other kind of notification. I don't want to see a single message at all!!

I hope someone can give me the right settings and/or what to change to make this happen permantly. It's driving me nuts....! Seriously. NUTS! :S

Sidenote; I am also experiencing issues with Firefox on my OnePlus 6T. Sometimes when I enter an URL it doesn't load at all, the screen stays white and doesn't do anything. Closing and starting the app doesn't help. The only solution (sometimes) is to close all my tabs (doesn't matter if it's 10, 40 or 99 tabs). If that fails the solution is a reboot of the phone. And no, it's not the internet connection because a) Chrome wouldn't work, b) nor my other apps. I do use Synchronization between my accounts. The OnePlus 6T was a fresh installation from a couple of weeks ago. Before that (and on my other phone) I had this issue also....

Maybe someone can shed some light as well on the Android issue??

Thank you in advance!

Regards
