Floating Videos -- FF 77.0.1
With newer releases of FF floating videos seem more difficult to defeat. Audio and Video are blocked in FF preferences but does nothing zero effect. Like om Foxnews.com. Page loads and I am blown out of the room by screaming audio...

You can try to set this pref to 2 on the about:config page to see if that has effect.
- media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2
You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
"media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2 "
No such parm in config...
Sorry, that pref is for Firefox 78.0.1 and has replaced media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed
Are you using content blocking extensions that you possibly could use to block these floating videos ?
I have AdBlocker Ultimate and UBlock Origin. I use both with FF settings to try and get the videos under control. But there always seem to be unexpected consequences.
