On my 15.0 it loads and plays automatically. I hate that. I also hate
video loading before I hit "play", because sometimes I'm on a metered
Internet connection. Even more hateful when it happens on a mobile phone.
You may recall that I raised this issue in opensuse-offtopic last month
(June) (one of my posts is dated 21 June).
The way I was advised to stop the video auto playing was to edit this
entry in about_config-
and change it to read "false" (it originally reads as 'true'). I did
this and the videos no longer play auomatically.
The way I read it, "false" means do not block, ie, play immediately.
However, the other part of my angst about this "new way of how to annoy
readers" was that the videos would 'slide' their way into the bottom R-H
of the screen -- and there was no way to get rid of the darn thing
except to "Close" it; and I couldn't find any Add-on which would stop
the videos 'sliding' into the bottm R-H of screen.
Several pages play that dirty trick. It is horrible on my smartphone
because the pig occupies an awful part of the tiny display.
Sometimes it is an add that pops up a video (that fortunately does not
play) but its black window floats at the bottom impeding me reading the
Well, there IS a solution for this nuisance invented
by some nerd
developer: Firefox v 61.0.1. I don't know what was changed in FF v61.0.1
but those videos no longer find their way into the bottom R-H of screen!
FF 61.0.1 is installed in (latest) Tumbleweed but not
available for Leap
15 so I had to download it and install it manually in Leap 15. (It would
be very nice if FF 61.0.1 was to become available for Leap 15.)
I think there is an extra repo, testing or something. :-?
