Request for way to disable the playing of sound files that are <EMBED>'d into web pages
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212 Very much like the evil pop-ups, background music in web pages is annoying, and can be considered "evil" by many (esspecially in crowded offices). It would be nice if Mozilla had a way of allowing the Web Browser to "ignore" the <embed> tags that are typically used to put the music in the the page. A more complex solution would give the user controls to "enable/disable" looping, volume, play, stop, pause. I for one will be happy with the simple solution. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. go to the web site 2. get ticked off and hit the back button 3. Actual Results: The "catch the A-train" music starts in this particular example, and when I hit the back button it stops. Expected Results: The page should display without playing the music, if a user has selected the feature to "disable" the music/<embed> tags. This is my first time entering a Bug/Request so I beg your indulgence if I've entered anything wrong, please let me know, and I'll fix it.
To plug-ins; I suspect the plug-in manager work would make this possible....
