    annoying video adverts!

    What's the deal with all these websites playing video adverts automatically now? After a few seconds, sound appears and you never know which tab it is coming from.
    Is there something that can block these?

    Two Firefox add-ons: NoScript blocks all javascripts on a website unless you add them to a whitelist; and Adblock Plus, which blocks most adverts that NoScript misses (even those in youtube videos).

    Start with AdBlock Plus first. Noscript can be a pain in the neck unless you're really obsessive.
