Watching media is impossible on almost every website



The bug is that if you choose not to allow media to auto play on sites like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and Twitch tv, pretty much any media or streaming video site, then it won’t let you watch even after you manually click to play the video. This is a major bug if you ask me because I hate when videos auto play and would greatly prefer that they did not but I am now stuck allowing them all to auto play because of this video bug.

Oh wow, closing my topic with an answer that I obviously had figured out already, nice job fam!


Open about:preferences#security, select Always allow on autoplay setting.
