- by Firefox user 12831531, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5It works pretty well.
One bug in Firefox Quantum though. I have it set to Mute By Default with sites like youtube whitelisted. It works well if I open a Youtube link in a new tab for instance, it's not muted. Which is the behavior I'd expect.
But if I open a new blank tab, that tab is muted. If I then navigate to Youtube, it doesn't unmute that tab.
So basically it only works if the tab is opened directly to a site that's on the Whitelist.
I also get the same bug as the other users where if I hit the Blue trashcan in the settings to remove a site, it freezes the whole settings panel.
Developer responseposted 4 years agoThank you for reporting the issue. I will fix it this weekend.
About the trashcan freeze, I found that it only seems to happen on Windows (works fine on Linux) so it looks like a Firefox bug. which I have to report.
EDIT: I have tested your setup in three different environments (Including Windows and Linux machines and Firefox 57 and Firefox Nightly) and the YouTube tab was always unmuted while in whitelist mode. Keep in mind that if you manually mute/unmute a tab my extension will stop changing that tab's mute state. This is to prevent you from having to create a new rule just to temporarily check a few sites.

I have googlevideo.com as a blacklist site. I return to "youtube.com" and the tab is still muted. That's not what I intented to achieve.
Thanks for this nice addon!
