YouTube videos that are opened in a new tab (right click->open in new tab), don't start automatically

So, the problem is exactly what the title describes. Videos would start playing immediately upon opening in a new tab. The issue appeared a couple days ago. I haven't changed any settings in firefox or in YouTube. Also, a friend of mine tried on his own computer to play videos in a new tab using chrome and the same thing happened, videos don't start. I guess it's a YT problem, but I would like a more experienced opinion. Googling didn't help, as every result was either very old, or it had to do with browser/account settings. Any help is appreciated, thanks a lot in advance!
