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?
