I just upgraded to ver 66.0 and thought one of the features was to not allow autoplay. I'm still getting autoplay, on yahoo.com, (and other sites) even after adding block in exceptions. I thought it would be disabled. What must I do?

I'm on Linux, and updated to Firefox 66 yesterday. I was looking forward to the new feature that disallows websites auto-playing videos. But I found that it's not the case. For example, https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-19/how-an-extra-man-in-cockpit-saved-a-737-max-that-later-crashed still starts playing the video automatically. This is just one of the many I've tried so far.

Am I missing any settings? There was none I could find having done a quick search on the preference page.

Hi, below are my current customized autoplay settings. They were fine for quite a few months and videos were blocked from autoplay. Then something changed a few days ago (i didnt mess with them;) and videos (particularly in youtube) are not blocked any more. Anyone else with the issue and can you tell me how to block videos from autoplay??

I tried all the support answers, about:config, autoplay default set to 0, 1, 2, set all the media autoplay options to prevent videos from autoplaying, to no avail. Nothing works! I love firefox but autoplay videos are very annoying. I hope you are able to provide a solution for me. I read it will be in options soon but I have little faith anything will work since I've tried every suggestion.

I have the about:config autoplay set to "1" as you are supposed to, but when Firefox updated the other day autoplay has been enabled again. I have downloaded an add-on to try and block them, but I want to know why we can't block them ourselves, or why setting the about:config autoplay to "1" no longer works.

Firefox 66 (macOS) reverting to playing YouTube videos automatically

I finally some months ago had managed to stop Firefox 63 (plus 64 and 65) from playing videos (i. e. on YouTube) automatically. In the course of finding the solution for this I had been told here in the forum that "no autoplay" would become the default in a future version of Firefox.

One or two days ago I then read that Firefox 66 would finally do this. Great. However, after updating to Firefox 66 videos on YouTube play again (unlike in my Firefox 65 with modified settings) automatically and with sound - blissfully ignoring the setting "Block websites from automatically playing sound" in the Firefox preferences.

With all due respect: Is this a joke? It was possible before to disable autoplay, now not anymore - what's the progress here? What is good about disabling the disabling of autoplay? And, no, youtube.com is not in my exceptions list (nothing is).

How can this be fixed?

Hi,

Just when life was tripping along nicely and all Yahoo's videos had been prevented from auto-play, along comes the latest version of FF -- Version 66.0 which appears to have thrown AdBlock & AdBlockPlus into turmoil and released their hold on the videos.

Any knowledge about this, or should I be looking elsewhere for the cause?

Best regards,

Ian
