    some users (myself included - Firefox 22.0 on Windows XP, in the USA) have the Flash load but then wait for a click to start playing (as it should)?

      Unless you are expecting something different for the two examples I posted in the diary?

        But why do other people have it autoplay?

          sets it off for some Firefox users.

          It's possible that some people have old configurations which already disabled autoplay in the Firefox configuration.

          If neither applies to your situation, then that would be interesting to investigate further.

            Perhaps that's why. Maybe Comedy Central put in some code to detect Adblock and force their ads to autoplay. (Or maybe it's an unintended consequence of something less sinister.)
