    Stop website talking to you (Firefox 1.0.6)

    If I'm happily listening to music from the PC's CD drive, and browsing the internet (multitasking, coo!), I very occasionally come across a website that wants to talk to me or play some alternative music at me.

    Is there an easy way of stopping this, short of closing down Firefox? I can't find any Firefox setting or options that would stop this happening, permanently or (preferably) temporarily...

    Thanks!

    Hi John

    There is no option built into Firefox to do this. You could use the extension BGM Conductor to achieve this. I have never used this extension so do not know how good it is.

    John,
    I haven't run into this problem yet, but does pressing the Esc key do anything when this problem crops up?

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by JohnGray on 25-Jul-05 08:02. revised apparent incomprehensibility of portion in brackets!)</P>Thanks, Tony -- I had never heard of BGM Conductor before (and wouldn't have known that it was that that I wanted)!

    It never occurred to me to try; next time I will do so!

    John

    Much later... No, pressing Esc does not stop the sound!
