Mozilla Firefox 69 is now available for all Windows and macOS users. One of the important changes on this version is the addition of an advanced blocker that prevents content from automatically playing when a webpage is loaded.
Users who regularly navigate the site may have encountered some websites that automatically play video content regardless of whether or not the user has enabled it. Basically, the website automatically starts the video as soon as the user visits it, regardless of whether or not you enable it.
Of course, this experience has long been annoying for users, especially when the audio emanating from videos in those tabs makes users startled or annoyed while listening to music. Even the sound emitted from videos in tabs can cause problems like slow or crash.
Most popular browsers such as Google Chrome now ship with autoplaying content, and with the latest version of Firefox 69, Mozilla has made Firefox immune to autoplaying videos.
“In our research, 90% of users surveyed wanted Firefox to stop the video from autoplaying. We are here for you and we have added a new feature called” is Block Autoplay to prevent all those annoying sounds in the first place . “ The Block Autoplay feature will not prevent the video from playing and, instead, the video will play without sound.
In previous versions of Firefox 69, the browser could only block audio from starting when the page loads. This means the video is still playing, only you can’t hear it. However, it is clear that this method can cause users to lose data in a wasteful manner and consume system resources. But with the latest feature in Firefox 69, the browser will have a dedicated control button to turn off both the video and audio of the video playing, and you can also add the option to allow setting rules for each site.
The option to block the auto play sound now has a separate menu under Privacy & Security on Firefox.
Specific instructions: Firefox> Menu> Options (Privacy)> Privacy & Security> Autoplay> Auto Settings
Or you can also quickly access the Privacy & Security section with the following link: about: preferences # privacy . Here, navigate to the Autoplay section in Permissions and click on Settings on the side.
The Settings section allows you to set up blocking the desired content on the site, such as Block audio and video (Block audio and video), Block audio (Block audio), Allow audio and video (Allow audio and video). activity video).
Of course you can choose in settings but you can turn it off in the video player toolbar on some pages.
You can turn off autoplay videos on the page through the Permission section on the Firefox toolbar
Or turn off directly on the toolbar of the currently playing video
Currently, the Google Chrome browser also has the mute feature of some tabs that automatically play audio from videos. In the near future, it is likely that Chrome will also support the ability to turn off both audio and video autoplay to bring the best experience for users.
