What is MuteLinks?
MuteLinks is a handy Firefox extension enabling users to control the audio on different websites automatically. It makes use of Firefox's built-in function of muting tabs and mutes them according to their URL. It offers two unique modes - muting blacklisted sites or 'Mute by default,' which mutes all tabs except those specified in a whitelist. Ideal for users who wish to avoid unsolicited noise from specific sites or those who want a less distracting browsing experience. Added features include the ability to mute all Private tabs and support for regex.
