    Anyone know of an extension that will mute sounds coming from firefox? Or even IE for that matter. Basically the reason why is some flash games I enjoy playing have annoying repeative sounds with no way to disable it, and I want to play music while I play.

    I was wondering about this a while back, some of the games in the arcade here don't have a mute option which is kind of annoying.

    google found this http://www.google.no/search?q=disabl...S:ohmy:fficial
    not quite what you want but im sure youll find other solutions

    "this is how you block background sounds:
    put this in your userContent.css file:

    /* block embedded sounds */
    embed[src*=.mid] { display: none !important }
    embed[src*=.mp2] { display: none !important }
    embed[src*=.mp3] { display: none !important }
    embed[src*=.mp4] { display: none !important }
    embed[src*=.wav] { display: none !important }
    embed[src*=.wma] { display: none !important }

    this will block anything in an embed tag with .mid in it. unlike adblock, you can still search for mid on google and download mp3s from a direct link, etc. you can also use this to block embedded mov, mpg, etc.

    (on windows, you can find that here: C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxx.default\chrome\userContent.css)
    (you have to create that file, it wont be there if you havent already)
