How to disable music autoplay on people’s pages

Since this is an issue that has startled me greatly on more that one occasion, I figured it was high time I get to the bottom of it and put an end to music autoplaying on people’s pages. So, after doing some digging, here is how to do just that.

For Firefox users:

First, you must have the Adblock Plus extension.

Once you have installed Adblock Plus, go to Tools > Adblock Plus Preferences.

Then click Add filter.

A textbox should appear. Paste the following text:*.js&*

Press Enter.

Repeat for the following lines:******.js

Click Ok.


For Chrome users:

Install Adblock Plus for Google Chrome.

Then, click the Menu icon, go to Tools > Extensions.

Look for Adblock Plus then click Options.

Click the Add your own filters tab.

Paste any of the URLs listed above.

Click Add filter.

Repeat for all.


For Safari users:

Install Adblock.

Then, click the Adblock icon in the toolbar and go to Options.

Click the Customize tab.

Click Edit.

Paste the URLs listed above.

Click Save.


…And that’s it! No more autoplay!

Note: This will make the music players completely disappear from people’s pages. Meaning, if you just wanted to stop the autoplay, but still want to be able to listen to the music later, then this isn’t for you.

If you find a page that still has autoplay, feel free to message me and I’ll try to help.
