Firefox allows muting audio from a tab by clicking on the audio icon that appears beside the close-tab button in the tab. It would be nice if, as an extension to this, Firefox allowed adding a domain to an audio "blacklist", such that all pages from that domain are muted by default. Pages from domains on the blacklist could still be explicitly unmuted, and presumably there would be some UI for removing domains from the blacklist. Chrome is reportedly adding something similar: http://www.androidpolice.com/2017/08/25/chrome-will-soon-let-permanently-mute-websites/
Maire - can you make sure this is in the right component to be considered by front end folks?

This is a new feature request, but Chrome is about to ship it. Peter -- What's the best way to get this on Product's radar for feature prioritization?

We are looking at a few changes to security/permissions UI. Let me bring this up with Wennie's team to see if we can add it to our scope as it is a nice user control. Leaving NI on me for now.

We'd probably have to introduce a new permission for sound to make this happen, so this might be more than a single bug. But, generally, it could fit well enough into the permission system, I think.
