In firefox webpage search bar type about:config

This will load FF configurations along with a search bar. In that search bar type media

This will generate all media configurations, scroll through to locate media.aboutwebrtc.auto_refresh

This is set to "true" (enabled) by default. There's a toggle to the right, tap that to make it "false" (disabled)

Hope this helps
