Youtube autoplay depite blocking autoplay


Description of the issue:
Opening a youtube page autoplays the video.

I have manually selected ‘block’ in the autoplay section of the ‘lock’ button to the immediate left of the URL in the browser bar.

I have added youtube to the block list in settings->preferences

Note that the block functions once. After loading a youtube page (either playing a video or not), the block is no longer enforced on future page loads.

**Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Set block
  2. Visit any video
  3. Play it or don’t
  4. Visit new video
  5. Video autoplays

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!): bypasses autoplay block

Expected result: videos should require me to click the play button in the frame

Reproduces how often:

Every time

Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Version 0.61.51 Chromium: 73.0.3683.75 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
