This tutorial explains how to automatically mute specific websites in Firefox.

Firefox has a native feature to mute or unmute a tab manually. You can click on the volume icon visible on the tab to mute that tab. However, it can’t help us to automatically mute the tab if we open a specific URL. To make this possible, here is a free add-on, known as “MuteLinks“.

MuteLinks Firefox add-on lets you specify the URLs that you don’t want to play audio. After that, whenever you will open any of those URLs in Firefox, the add-on will will automatically mute volume for that tab. So, this is an interesting add-on that expands the usage of mute tab feature of Firefox.

For example, if you have to mute volume for a specific URL, then you need to insert the URL in quotes (“”). To mute more than one page, insert URL without quotes.

After inserting the URLs, close the Options page. Now when you will open the URLs that you have inserted in the blacklist, the add-on will automatically mute volume for those URLs.
