How to stop videos from self loading and playing

    I'm using Firefox 3.6 with Win XP

    Is there some way to stop sites from auto playing videos when I go to
    their site? An especially aggravating one is -

    After one video that I chose to play ends, the dang page automatically
    starts playing another one. I remember that Netscape had a button to
    stop this loading. How come FF doesn't?

    Anyone have a solution to this arrogant nonsense of those who program
    pages this way?

  2. Install the FlashBlock add-on.

    It did stop videobash from continuing on with a new video after my
    chosen one ended. We'll see how it works on the myriad of flash
    games other pages use.
