    Youtube new query

    On Firefox when I click on a Video ,all I get is a circle going round and round, until I click on Play, is there a way to automatically play Videos, as you can on Chrome?

    You mean from when you search from google? not in youtube?

    I don't get the circle if I click from the search - I get a still picture of the video, I do then have to select play.

    Do you have an ad blocker? is it that causing it?

    Don't get bogged down in the technical aspects, but on the Mozilla (who own Firefox) support forum, there are a number of comments regarding this, it is to do with the automatic HTML player Firefox uses.
    "On some sites there is a strange side effect where Firefox starts buffering the video and blocks playback without changing the pause button back into a play button. So on those sites, when you do want to start the video, you have to click twice. "
    There is a lot of posts telling you how to disable the Autoplay feature, but that can cause problems with other sites that use autoplay in a different way.
    So my advice is you just have to put up with it, as it is a problem on the site you are visiting and the way Firefox uses the page code, which may be fixed by the page writers later.
