Yaaaaayyyy, FINALLY: In #Firefox 66, "the Block Autoplay feature will stop the audio and video from automatically playing"
On the downside, Firefox is being pushy again, and has forced Google and Amazon back onto my Home page.
...also, the autoplay protection doesn't actually seem to cover video, as I just had one of those playing on Gizmodo... Granted, there was no sound (but the video showed autogenerated subtitles instead).
@galaxis Maybe that's what we're getting for having duckduckgo as default search option. :(But funny thing that Google pays to get in front of people, though they got their own browser.
With Amazon it's the same problem as with Amazon on Ubuntu.
