This is at least disturbing but gets really worse with lots of tabs open, a couple of them producing sounds at the same time. This request for enhancement asks for a new feature to handle this issue. I don't know how the system works and how much control the browser can get on plug-ins (often ads are macromedia flashs these days). From the users point of view I can think of two possible implementations: i) a new entry in the tab's context menue providing an audio toggle, only affecting this tab. ii) a general adjustment (preferences) with allows to have the active tab only send audio to the system. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Browse e.g. the following site for a example of a flash ads http://www.jumpcut.com/
Wouldn't this be more useful as an extension?
Extensions Adblock and Flashblock might help. If you never want flash in ads there is flash blocking userContent.css on the internet for instance here: http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/index.php?showtopic=97 http://kb.mozillazine.org/UserContent.css
