Firefox 20.0.1 in a work environment. All sounds are distracting, whether Yahoo! videos with unwanted audio for example, or any other auto-playing audio or background sound.

hello misterr1000, you could make use of the built-in soud mixer in windows 7 in order to mute individual applications (like firefox and the adobe flash player): http://mingersoft.com/blog/2011/01/adjust-and-mute-volume-for-individual-windows-applications/
