Disable autoplay videos in Firefox

Unlike Google Chrome – it’s quite easy to disable autoplay videos in Firefox.

The functionality is built right into Firefox- meaning no third-party extensions required.

While it’s not absolutely perfect – it’s a whole lot better than Google Chrome’s failed attempt to block autoplay videos.

Here’s how:

  1. In the address bar enter about:config and hit enter
  2. In the search box, enter media.autoplay.enabled
  3. Double-click on the setting to change the value to false
