    This is not Firefox specific. It’s another anti ad blocker technique they’re trying.

      Wait, so their solution to people using adblock is to add a 5sec delay to everyone’s videos?

        Everyone not on chrome/chromium based browser it seems. Get everyone to switch to chrome then remove chrome’s ability to block ads I assume is the plan, though I doubt anyone using Firefox isn’t aware of chrome and this is likely to push them further away, not towards it.

        To anyone using an ad blocker it would appear. Not saying it’s right, just trying to correct misinformation.
