Vivaldi can freeze completely when scrolling in Facebook and some (auto-starting?) film clip appears

When checking Facebook, it sometimes happens that the Vivaldi browser freezes completely - other tabs are not accessible, the only thing you can do, is kill Vivaldi (sorry, Antonio). This usually is the case when quickly scrolling in Facebook and a movie clip appears - I think it's supposed to start automatically, but it doesn't, and instead, everything stalls. I have this phenomenon on both my home computer and my office computer. I'm on version 1.0.344.37 (Beta 2) (32-bit). Is this a known issue?
There's no fix yet, but there's a simple workaround.
Click on the arrow on Facebook's blue ribbon and then select the "Settings" option from the drop-down menu that appears. From there, click on the "Videos" heading on the left side of the Setting menu to find the "Auto-Play Videos" option.
