In terms of blocking autoplay, most user agents have their own mechanisms which are implementation-specific and not consistent across the web. In order to allow web authors to have an easy way to detect whether they can start autoplay media or not, Firefox is going to prototype the Autoplay Policy Detection API, which will be controlled by a pref and experimenting on Nightly first.
