#16925 closed defect (user disappeared)

HTML5 video and audio are live on the page with Security Slider set to highest

With the slider right up at highest it says "HTML5 video and audio media become click-to-play via NoScript."

But HTML5 videos are completely live on pages I'm visiting where they are embedded without any further user interaction.

I don't know the status of potential security issues and leaks with HTML5 video but nothing I have read on that topic provides any clear consensus currently and I think video and audio should be blocked when security is set to highest to let the user decide.

I.e the slider should do exactly what it says.

NoScript might be disabled, off when checked on (bug) and a lot of other reasons.
No response for 5 months, no details, no info to reproduce = user disappeared.
