Description (last modified by mapx)


Mac OS X 10.10.1, Safari 8.0.2, ABP 1.8.10 (Although was happening at least several ABP versions before this one). EasyList + Malware Domains.

How to reproduce

  1. Play a YouTube playlist with autoplay on
  2. Open a different tab and surf to your heart's content
  3. Wait until the currently playing video is finished

Observed behaviour

The tab loads the next video on the playlist's webpage without playing the video.
Upon clicking the tab, the video starts playing.

Expected behaviour

After the video's webpage has loaded, the video should start playing without having to switch to the tab.

I want to mention that this issue happens fairly consistently, but not all the time.

I'm closing all issues related to the legacy Safari extension, as it has been discontinued in favor of an App Extension that doesn't share any code with the old extension.
