Stop autoplay of videos, not just the audio portion

Kuphostiwe

I was pleased when a recent release of Firefox promised to block autoplay by default, but it turns out that it merely blocks the sound of videos. When I go to the websites of, say, the NY TImes or Washington Post, annoying videos are running, using up bandwidth. I can't find any setting within Firefox -- or any add-on -- that succeeds in turning these off. A silent video is better than a noisy one, but why can't we block ALL autoplay?

Type about:config<enter> in the address bar. If a warning screen comes up, press the I Accept the Risk button. At the top of the screen is a search bar. Type media.autoplay.enabled and set it to false.

Thanks for the reply. I tried that some time ago; it's been set to false but the videos play on.

media.autoplay.enable is no longer support and is replaced by media.autoplay.default

  • media.autoplay.default = 1 [0:Allowed; 1:Blocked 2:Prompt]
  • media.autoplay.allow-muted = false
  • media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed = false

For user-gestures-needed you can try false and true to see what works for you.

See also:

  • media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground
