I moved the comment to the row I newly added to the top, it seemed like the comment applied to all rows (I added a wrapping hbox as well) so figured it should be at the top row, you want me to put it back in so its in the top 2 rows or fine as is?

Yeh was following the rest of the prefs implementation and they just all changed on inbound, rebased and switched to ftl

So this uses |media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed| to control whether we show the new controls in about:preferences, the switch controls |media.autoplay.enabled|

Bryant I am not certain about the wording here, specifically "Block website to play media with sound" seems like "Block website from playing media with sound" is more natural, and "You can specify which websites are allowed to autoplay media element" the media element seems wrong here

Cheers for the drive bys Johann, I think with the text fixed mostly need to add tests for this then will flag you up

Yeah, I think we generally try to have this sort of comment in front of every <hbox> that's necessary for search.

https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/search?q=%3C!--%20Please%20don%27t%20remove%20the%20wrapping%20hbox%2Fvbox%2Fbox%20for%20these%20elements.%20It%27s%20used%20to%20properly%20compute%20the%20search%20tooltip%20position.%20--%3E&case=false&regexp=false&path=

Not very pretty, someone should try to come up with a better solution to this :|

Thanks! :)

Good points, the spec is now under review by the copywriter, so some wording might change afterward. The word 'from' seems fit better here, and maybe we should highlight the 'auto' by restating it as 'Block autoplay media with sound' since we still allow the media to play if user gesture activates the document or just click the play button. 

For exception panel, we can say "You can specify which websites are allowed to autoplay media with sound", which are much aligned with the wording we used in the checkbox. But I also have some concern by using the word 'autoplay' as it might not be a common term for the general audience.

I'll communicate those ideas with the copywriter. Once we nail it down, I'll reflect the changes in the spec and the bug here.

Bug 1458249 - Add autoplay item to about:preferences.

https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/242336/#review252224

This seems pretty good already, not an r+ yet because I'd like to take another look at the next patch :)

I also assume you'll figure out the right copy in time for this landing.

I'm not really sure why you have a constant for "media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed" and no constant for "media.autoplay.enabled". I think I don't mind either way but it looks a little inconsistent like this...

You should add permissions-exceptions-autoplay-media-window.title and permissions-exceptions-autoplay-media-desc as search ids.

you can restore these values with Services.prefs.clearUserPref

Can you please add a short test that verifies that the section is hidden without this pref?

This shouldn't be necessary if you reset the prefs.

Can you please assert that after this the autoplay pref is set to false?

Again, here you're only asserting that the UI works. It would be great if you could check that the correct permission was set in the permission manager.

Please assert that the permission was removed.

My suggestion would be

"You can specify which websites are allowed to automatically play media elements."

I'd suggest "Block websites from automatically playing media with sound" although that might get a little long...

Hey Johann, got most of the changes done but running into an issue in the test, you mentioned I should assert that the permission gets added and in the diff I added:

  let btnApplyChanges = doc.getElementById("btnApplyChanges");
  btnApplyChanges.click();
  await waitForPermChanged;

  is(SitePermissions.get(URL, "autoplay-media").state, SitePermissions.ALLOW,
     "Correctly added the exception");

only it keeps failing with SitePermissions.BLOCK, I have tried setTimeout etc but the permission never seems to get set, the perm-changed event gets fired and if I pause the test from running after the .click I can see the permission being shown in the UI + see it having an effect if I go to an autoplaying url, is there something I am missing here? Thanks (full diff @ https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/242334/diff/8)

You don't need this function, there's a utility function you can use instead:

await TestUtils.topicObserved("perm-changed");

All the following accesskeys use the first letter of the label so followed that pattern
