I can’t hear any audio playback in the Firefox web browser

As of August 2022, Firefox blocks all media with sound from playing automatically, by default. If you want Audiomovers.com to automatically play media or make other changes to your autoplay settings, you can use one of the methods below.


1. Always allow or block media autoplay

To always allow or block autoplay for all media with audio or video:
  1. In the Menu bar at the top of the screen, click Firefox and select Preferences.
  2. Select the Privacy & Security panel and go down to the Permissions section (or enter autoplay in the Find in Settings search box).
5. After you have made your selection, click Save Changes. The setting you select will apply to all media for all websites, except for specific autoplay site settings.


2. Site Settings

When Firefox is actively blocking media on a website, you'll see a special icon appear in the address bar. Click that icon to open the Site Information drop-down panel, where you can change the Autoplay setting for that website. Note: You can also change the Autoplay setting for a website from the Page Info window Permissions panel (uncheck Use Default under Autoplay and select a different setting).

3. Autoplay site settings list

Your autoplay settings list will show any website permissions you have set that do not follow your default settings. To view or manage autoplay site settings:
  1. In the Menu bar at the top of the screen, click Firefox and select Preferences.
  2. Select the Privacy & Security panel and go down to the Permissions section (or enter autoplay in the Find in Settings search box).



3. Find Autoplay and click the Settings… button. The Settings - Autoplay list will open. - You can read a full explanation of Firefox blocking media autoplay from Mozilla and links to related topics here.
