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....
