Is there a way to always mute certain webpages?

Asked by MyNewtBoobs (19041points) April 6th, 2011

There are a few pages that always play video ads. Is there a way I can set those urls to silent, without muting the whole computer or even all of Firefox?

It will block Flash, but you can still click on something to get it to play. And you can whitelist sites like youtube so videos there will play without clicking on anything.

If you’re using firefox, for stopping ads is AdBlock Plus – I don’t even see ads on FaceBook anymore. A lot of those Flash ads are buggy too, so this will probably make your browser crash less.

I second AdBlock Plus. Why bother with muting ads when you can just get rid of them all together :P

I third AdBlock Plus. Also, add Element Hiding Helper, which will specificaly let you block objectionable content that makes it through ABP’s filters.

Hi, just shut down the voice volume or download an addon, such as AdBlock Plus.

Don’t turn down the volume. I realize some advertising on the web will happen, but AdBlock sends the right signal: antisocial behavior will not be tolerated.

I mean if not like some ad video, please feel free to turn volume down, nothing else related. It’s not antisocial.

Forcing people to listen to your crap is selfish and antisocial.

@bolwerk What? Where did antisocialness come in to play?
