  • Probably the worst thing about being forced to use FF quantum is this addon not working with it :(((( absolute gem among addons and I'm hoping it's getting some love from the Author soon and that we will be able to use it again!
  • In English using translator.
    About a year ago I put the rating of "4", since the plug-in stopped the video, but on other sites it started video on the contrary. I turned to the author of the plugin without any hope of an answer, but as it turned out he was very friendly and immediately corrected the mistake! And then for that year I turned to him probably 5 or 7 times and every time he immediately answered and soon corrected the bugs!
    Therefore, I can not pass by, I just have to put this plug-in "5": for the author's responsiveness, for quick fixing bugs, for being the only plug-in that blocks downloading the video (rather than just pauses), then that this is the only plug-in that shows a preview of the video, but there are no settings in the plug-in that spoil Yutub (without the user's knowledge), the plug-in is very light. Thanks to the author for the fact that he is doing the work, which in fact is the responsibility of Youtube programmers.
    By the way, thanks to the author for reading scribbles that the online translator did =)

    На русском языке:
    Где-то год назад я поставил оценку "4", так как плагин хотя и останавливал видео, но зато на других сайтах он стал видео наоборот запускать. Я обратился к автору плагина без надежды на ответ, но как оказалось он очень дружелюбен и тут же исправил ошибку! И вот за тот год я обращался к нему наверное 5 или 7 раз и каждый раз он тут же отвечал и вскоре исправлял баги!
    По этому я не могу пройти стороной, я просто обязан поставить данному плагину "5": за отзывчивость автора, за быстрое исправления багов, за то что это единственный плагин, который блокирует загрузку видео (а не просто ставит их на паузу), за то что это единственный плагин который показывает превью видео, зато что в плагине нет настроек которые портят Ютуб (без ведома пользователя), плагин очень лёгкий. Спасибо автору за то, что он делает работу, которая на самом деле является обязанностью программистов Ютуба.
    Кстати, спасибо автору за то, что читал каракули, которые сделал онлайн переводчик =)
  • Great add-on that gives you exactly what they promised. May need to be updated as there seem to be a few bug issues but apart from that flashstopper has been working great. No complaints so far!
  • Desabilitar o autoplay do Firefox no about:config (media.autoplay.enabled to false) impede o autoplay, mas o download do vídeo ainda continua. Isso é um problema para que tem tem uma rede limitada. O FlashStopper era a única ferramenta que além de impedir o autoplay, também impedia o download do vídeo (formação de cache) no YouTube.
  • For those who wants to disable autoplay on Firefox. Go to about:config and sett media.autoplay.enabled to false.
  • Perfect! I do not know how I will do it when I'm forced to use Firefox Quantum
  • вопрос , будет ли поддержка 57+ ????
  • Hoping for an update to this add-on. Was the perfect solution.
  • I REALLY hope that this will be updated to work with Firefox Quantum. There doesn't seem to be anything else comparable on the market, and this was working perfectly. I'm amazed that it's so difficult to find a simple auto-play disabler for web videos. Turning it off in Firefox settings makes my music players fail to play at all, but this extension only affected videos so was the perfect solution.
  • Please update it. It works great and it is essential for many users!
  • Please update it to ff 57
  • At last one that does the job after I've wasted hours trying them all both old and new
  • work as advertised. must have. but need to be rewrited from scratch because of those retarded shit from mozilla team.

    hope youll decide to update it.
  • The best of its kind. Will you update to WebExtensions? Thanks.
  • I use this all the time. It makes my Internet life so much better. With the recent update to the YouTube site, FlashStopper prevents comments on videos from displaying. I hope you can fix this, because I do like reading the comments.
    please check it out (try posting comments) and let me know (in the support site) if it works for you...
  • are you going to update it to web extension?
  • In youtube new interface comment section not showing!
    Thanks for great addon
    please check it out (try posting comments) and let me know (in the support site) if it works for you...
  • You might want to consider renaming the add-on so that people know it also stops HTML5 videos from auto-playing.
  • Can you please add support for firefox nightly? That will be very helpful :)
  • Thanks yochaim for the only must-download add-on, it just makes my life easier and less stressful. This does exactly what it says: turns what used to be a constant chore of opening & stopping videos as I open them in new tabs, or obnoxious autoplay videos on my current tab, into a 1-click solution that's intuitive and, yes, rather elegant.
  • Saves time and nerves
  • I don't know why websites would force videos to autoplay, but it's a nightmare with multiple tabs. This addon is a huge lifesaver (especially when at work and you just want to read content peacefully without videos blaring in the background).
  • This plug-in is the sh*t guys!
    It's working like a charm!
    Websites doesn't give a flying f*ck about the ClickToPlay settings in Firefox, you want THIS stuff if you hate videos shouting in your tabs without control!
    It was crashing for me in 55.0.1 for some reason, reinstalled the browser (don't believe anybody, it's always the browsers fault!), than reinstalled the plug-in, it works fine.

  • Best addon for controlling Flash
  • It's a great add-on for what it's advertised to do, but it's very limited. I'd love to be able to disable the add-on on all but a few sites, as opposed to enabling it on all but a few sites. (A blacklist, rather than a whitelist)

    This is primarily due to wanting to stop the auto-play of channel trailers on Youtube. I'm not sure how difficult this would be to implement, but it'd be fantastic if it was.
    i think you you're underestimating the amount of videos that are trying to play without you wanting them to (mainly to increase ad exposure...)
    FS is for people who think sites shouldn't autoplay by default (or at least let you opt for not autoplaying). i'm pretty sure after a short while your blacklist will be much longer then your whitelist is right now...
    and this is without mentioning background tabs!
