Videos on vimeo don't play in firefox (nor embedded, nor directly on vimeo site).

They load. I can see and move the player to see different pictures but the player does not start.

Firefox 46 / Ubuntu 14.04

Video plays when using a new profile and no add-ons.

  • Do they work in chrome?

  • No, Vimeo videos do not play in Google Chrome as of Version 61.0.3163.100 (Official Build) (64-bit) Oct 11 '17 at 20:12

I circumvented the problem by changing the setting

media.autoplay.enabled to true

(in url: about:config)
