Fox news... provide examples please.
You can look at these prefs on the about:config page to see what settings work for you to block autoplay.
- media.autoplay.default = 5 [0:allow;1:blockAudible;5:blockAll]
- media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2
- media.autoplay.allow-extension-background-pages = false
- media.autoplay.block-event.enabled = true
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.
I am having the same problem with Fox News Website. Every other news web site, that I go to, has video auto play blocked but Fox News slips through. I have the proper configuration in about: config. Can anyone shed some light on this?
In addition to the preferences mentioned previously, you could also try making the following false: media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground
