    It seems that every time I click on a news story (FOX, CNN, whatever) that a video opens in the lower right hand corner of my screen. I have to keep the volume muted to avoid hearing the talking heads, and the movement is a visual distraction.

    Is there a Firefox setting that will kill the videos until I intentionally click on one to watch?

    Thanks in advance,
    Rick

    PS: Browser is Firefox 50.0

    Thank you! The chore was accomplished with a Flashblock add-on.
