Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

  1. Open up multiple Youtube tabs with videos in each one.
  2. Close IE.
  3. Restart IE and restore the session.
  4. All tabs will play all the videos at the same time (unwanted behavior).

Expected Results:

IE should restore a session with many tabs w/o IE playing any video content until I directly click on a tab. When I click on a tab, then IE should load whatever video is on that page and only play if the video is set to auto-play. Any auto-play video in a tab should NOT play until I select/open that tab.

Actual Results:
