  • Tutorial Allow Autoplay For Videos In Firefox
    #1
    As of Firefox 66, media autoplay with sound is being blocked by the browser. This follows moves made earlier to block autoplay from mobile devices, to conserve bandwidth. It isn't a bad thing for those that prefer it, but I will show you how to disable it if you preferred it the other way.

    When you visit a site, like YouTube, you can tell if Firefox is blocking autoplay by looking in the navigation bar:

    If you see that icon, click it to bring up the site information menu:

    Using the highlighted setting, you can allow autoplay on any sites that you want.

    ++1 to my big bro.

    I have my Youtube playlists playing in the backgroud, and it just recently started stopping after every song. You know my eye issues... I didn't see it until you pointed it out. I thought my FF was fucking up since I just recently reinstalled it so I can get my siriusXM player to load, so I thought the reinstall screwed up somehow.

    I've come to love FF, I don;t mind this , as long as I know how to fix it. THANKS MAN!

    You're welcome.

    I'm a big fan of Firefox. This change is actually great because now all those ragged ass news sites won't pummel me with unwanted videos when I just want to read the article.

    Just an update. Now you can specify even more about how sites play videos. Including, allowing them to play silently.
