Where to suggest / request Firefox Addons?
« on: June 14, 2008, 03:36:48 AM »
Hi all,
I love the Coding Snacks system here.
But I'm not sure if I can post Firefox Addon ideas there? It seems to be mostly for small OS utilities scripted in AutoHotkey.
Is there a forum I should be checking out for Firefox Addons?
There is no apparent way to submit ideas at https://addons.mozil...a.org/en-US/firefox/

IDEA:
A visual indicator for browser tabs (and taskbar buttons), whenever there is audio being played.

Motivation:
Don't you hate it when you have many browser tabs (and browser windows) open, and there is suddenly some music being played from one of those webpages... And there is no easy way to find the offending page.

I second that. And third it etc.....
Often there is no way to shut it up either, other than close the page.

I was actually looking for something similar when I found this thread: does anyone know how you can completely stop a page loading?
In specific I mean can you stop a Myspace page when all the text has loaded and not have it go on and download plenty pictures, slideshows, videos, glittery things...... when all you want to do is find  out who this person is.

The stop button only stops some of it, blocking java/script sort of works, but too many things need it.....

And add to what kaon wants.... can the sound be blocked?

Hi Kaon, this may not do exactly what you ask for but it's maybe close enough? (if it works - I haven't tried it)
