This should work as long as you have Firefox v66:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay

It's a new Firefox feature that blocks media auto-play.

If you read the instructions, you don't go into Preferences to do
this. You go into the Control Center in Firefox. The way to get to
that is to click the little i in a circle to the left of the URL in
the address bar. Once you're in the Control Center, click the
"Permissions" entry, put a check in the "Block websites from
automatically playing sound" box, and you should be all set.

The link above gives instructions for that and then some, so you'll
want to look it over.
