I am using the video background fix addon but whenever i minimize firefox, it will play the current video untill the end and will not autoplay the next one. I have to bring forefox to the screen again and then it starts the video.

On my much older Android device, i am using the same setup and have no problem with autoplaying the next video, even when firefox is minimized. Any suggestions?

OK, after months of struggling with this, I finally managed to figure it out on my own. I noticed that whenever i minimize mozilla, if there is no active video on the tab, when i return the app to the foreground, it reloads the page, so i guessed that it's moving the tab to inactive if there is nothing happening on the screen.

So, if anyone ever has the same problem, the fix is:

Go to Mozilla Settings -> Tabs -> Move old tabs to inactive -> disable this option.

Hi

Which video site are you using where this happens? Do you have a link to an example video?

Í've only tried it for youtube and dailymotion, but i assume this will be the case with every website that offers videos with autioplay next. Both don't autoplay next video when minimized, but when i bring the app back to the foreground - next video starts. It happens to every video i've tried, not a specific one.

I usually use this to play music from youtube in my car.

If you want to try and test it, do the following:

1. Get Video Background fix addon for firefox 2. Open youtube in firefox (or any website that offers the option to autoplay next video). 3. Start a video and switch to another app. 4. Wait for video to end and notice that it does not automatically play the next video (at least for me on this device)
