Dear Forum, maybe this has been already debated.

In Firefox for Android, when I switch to another tab the audio playback of the previous one stops.

Can I keep audio of hidden tabs playing?

My device is a Samsung Galaxy A5 2017.

It seems to depend when/where, and in the case of videos, whether they are full screen or not. It might also depends on how the website is coded (?).

One extension that seems to help is "Video Background Play fix". Without it, I had 20-25 % success (i.e. background music or videos would continue) whereas with it, I now have 80% success.

Another possibility is whether settings like "Allow overlayed applications" (or something like that, my system is in French) is on or not. I also use Android 10 (but it was similar in Android 9)
