Settings don't exist in FF 64 for "Allow or block media autoplay in Firefox"

已張貼

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?

Hello seacleer,

That article starts with :

"This feature is planned for a future Firefox release. " ......

It's being tested in studies and in Nightly (pre-release) versions of Firefox

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

Would you check this please :

Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter (promise to be careful, if asked)

Type in the search bar media.autoplay.

and check these settings :

media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed = true

media.autoplay.ask-permission = true

media.autoplay.default = 0 [0=Allowed, 1=Blocked, 2=Prompt]

media.autoplay.allow-muted = false

If you have to change anything, then close and restart Firefox.

OK, doesn't it look like all those settings need to be changed? You confused the issue by saying "If you have change anything". If those are the settings, wouldn't you OF COURSE have to change the settings, ALL of the settings?

Have tried that, not restarted FF yet, I expect that will resolve my issue too. But I'm puzzled; the first three settings:

> media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed = true > media.autoplay.ask-permission = true > media.autoplay.default = [2=Prompt]

seem to overlap one another. I'd be interested in a description of each and how they differ.
