Disable HTML 5 Video Autoplay

By default, Firefox plays HTML 5 videos once they're loaded in a page, which is particularly annoying. To turn this off, do the following:

  1. Type about:config in the browser's address bar and hit enter.
  2. Confirm that you will be careful if the notification comes up.
  3. In the Search: box, type media.autoplay.enabled to filter to the setting.
  4. Double-click the setting so that its Value column reads false.
  5. Close the about:config tab.
