    I have a Samsung galaxy s7 edge and a update from T mobile came through on March 27 2017 and now firefox won't play youtube videos on background. It plays all other websites videos like from vevo or an anime website but not from YouTube. Is it only me or other people have the same problem?

    It's not just you and I haven't updated any app or OS for this to occur it seems to have been coded in on YouTube's site. Looks like Google is adamant about us paying $10 a month for YouTube red for the amazing feature of turning our screen off while playing a YouTube video.

    Yes the newest version of Firefox isn't playing youtube in the background

    SOLUTION:
    I've installed Firefox Aurora and it works there flawlessly
    or try the Firefox Beta version , maybe it works too

    Happy listening

    Clearing the private data worked for me.

    Click Menu (scroll downwards and press the 3 dots on the top right) --> Settings --> Clear private data

    Simple fix for me was to request the desktop site. The reason Google is messing with this feature doesn't exist on a desktop computer, so the desktop code doesn't block it. Yet.

    even if you use firefox aurora, make sure you select the box "request desktop site" and then the youtube videos will play in the background.

    Clearing private date + "request desktop site" worked. Just gotta let the video load a little before you switch apps
