    Default Annoying Stuff - video autoplay

    Is there a way to stop the auto play of videos in Stuff? It's annoying.

    I'm using Firefox 59.02.

    n Chrome, and Disable HTML5 Autoplay add-on

    If Firefox is your browser type "about:config" in the address bar, hit Enter.
    Search for "media.autoplay.enabled," then double-click to disable it.

    Been to about:config. "media.autoplay.enabled" can only be set to 'true' or 'false'. default is 'true' and I changed to 'false'.

    It still doesn't stop the autoplay!

    I'm using F/F version 55.0.3 and piroska's tip was something I got elsewhere and it worked just fine. Maybe update your F/F to the latest may help.

    Were you able to 'enable' or 'disable' the media.autoplay? I could only change the setting to true /false.

    How did you do it?

    I am using the latest updates i.e. ver 59.0.2

    I clicked once and made it "false" it was "true" and was playing videos on almost every news page, now not auto-playing anything.
