    installed new firefox for android, most notably is speed...

    i went into settings, advanced, toggled 'media auto-play' to off and all ads disappeared... (didn't have to go to 'about:config', it's in settings)

    under media auto-play it states "control if websites can autoplay videos and other media content"... are ads considered "other media content" ???

    curious as a cat, i checked ad-ons, just one listed... openh264 video codec,,, no others, none, zip... looked through 'about:config' and javascript is enabled, yet no ads :D:D:D

    haven't found any other reasons for the lack of ads other than toggling off media auto-play, interesting...

    in settings 'about firefox' all it says is 57.0...

    does this behave the same on other mobile platforms, ie: iphone/ios; windows; etc ???
