I have looked up every variation of this question under the goddamn sun, and all I can ever find is "how can I KEEP audio playing after I lock my phone screen?"--which is not what I'm looking for.
Long story short, I've been using YouTube on the Firefox browser app because it has ad block and I refuse to pay for YouTube premium just to get rid of the insidious amount of ads the app has that I can't be rid of otherwise. It's not as good at the app, I'll admit, but there's no intrusive ads trying to sell me crap, so I'm willing to deal with the downsides.
The problem is that audio from YouTube in the Firefox app on Android continues to play if it was playing when I locked the screen, or if I was playing audio in my car and the app was never exited (so to speak) before I locked the screen, audio will either keep playing in the former case, or it will start playing as soon as the bluetooth connects to my car again once I get back in and turn it on.
How do I STOP this from happening? There's no settings within the app or my phone (that I can find) that will help with this. I don't know if it's a Firefox issue or an issue with my phone, but the audio thing doesn't happen with ANY other app I have. Only Firefox, and it's driving me crazy. I don't know how to keep it from doing so without the added step of making sure I close the app before I lock the screen, but I don't always remember to do so, and that's the problem. Please help me, because I'm almost about to give up on this app, too.
If it's relevant and it'll help, I have a Samsung Galaxy S22+.
