I'll ask again, if you have blocked auto play it breaks playback:
media.autoplay.enabled set to false is breaking user experience (videos won't play)


Open about:config - and search for the pref above 'media.autoplay.enabled = is it set to 'false' ?

That pref has been removed or renamed in later versions of Firefox as it no longer appears in the latest Nightly I'm using.

I had to turn off uBlock Origin and Enable 3rd-Party Cookies to Always before it would play. Man.. that site created like 92 cookies or something. Geez..

This might sound like a silly question, but did you refresh the page after you disabled Adblock? Sometimes the simplest things that are overlooked can cause problems. If that isn't the answer, the only other thing I can think of is to uninstall Adblock. I used to use it, but found it very problematic.

I recommend using uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, and Cookie AutoDelete. Be mindful that once in a blue moon uB O and P B can prevent a page loading. What I found is that in almost all cases, the page has some sort of potentially harmful content or wild pop-up advertising e.g., gaming, dating etc. And of course, they can prevent video playback.

I also had UBlock at one time; it also blocked things like videos; thus the reason I uninstalled it

Maybe it's time to switch to FF 61.x.x

NFL videos work in the Microsoft Edge and Opera Browsers; however they DO NOT work in Firefox and Chrome;

Work fine with 61.0.2 in Windows 7 Pro if I disable uBlock Origin for the page and set 3rd-party cookies to always. (I know, a repeat of what I said earlier.)

Maybe all the vids are taking a knee?
