Closing Tab won't stop vid from playing

Talk about Mozilla browsers for small devices such as PDAs and cellphones.

Up until recently... maybe a Firefox version update... don't know... but when I would open up a tab and play a vid... maybe didn't like it and I would close that tab... the tab would of course close and the vid would be killed off....

... now, when I close that tab the vid continues to play in the background...

... anybody know an about:config setting that needs changing?

The only site that I play and close tabs is in this site.

First of all : Unbelievable, that cat !!!
There are two preferences in about:config (set it's value to either 'true' or 'false'):
media.autoplay.enabled
and :
media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground

Thanks for the reply... but neither one of those settings solved the issue. Firefox wasn't updated during the change that took place with the vids from that site... so, that site must have made a change in their handling of that stuff... no big deal.
