We should add autoplay to our permissions policies:

Services.perms.add(NetUtil.newURI(""), "autoplay-media", 1);

Hi there,

I am an UofT CS student doing bug-hunting for a course. Here is the link to my report for this bug, lmk if there is anything else I need to do. I will try to test it next weekend or whenever I have time.


This should only require a chance to policies-schema.json and Policies.jsm.

Looking at

should provide some guidance.

Also, we don't use Github for patches to the tree.


Thank you for working on this, by the way!

Alright, feel free to assign this to me, I will see this through.

Hi Mike, I've added added autoplay to both the policies.jsm and policies-schema.json, will it also be included in the browser_policy_permissions.js?

Reassigning due to lack of info from original contributor.
