E-Dub,

Can't you just click on the loudspeaker icon in the System Tray/Notification Area (right hand side of the Task Bar) and select Mute? Then you could browse the forums to your heart's content without hearing the buzzing. If you want to listen to a streamed track, then just reverse the process temporarily.

(If you don't have a loudspeaker icon in the Notification Area then go to Control Panel, double-click on Sounds and Audio Devices, click on the Volume tab if it is not already on top, and then select 'Place volume icon in the taskbar'.)

Unless, like me, you listen to Music through headphones on your PC, whilst browsing PA.

I've tried to use the adblock plugin for Firefox but without success.

Firstly, it doesn't seem to work on PA and secondly, it works too well on MySpace (it stops me from listening to bands music and also stops my own track selection from playing).

It's frustrating!  Maybe Mike can tell me where I'm going wrong?

I logged back on. I hate being away from PA!

Like Geck0, I have uploaded most of my discs to iTunes and listen to them through my computer. I do hit the 'mute' button at home, but like listening to my tunes while I work. Makes it very frustrating with Marillion's "The Invisible Man" on and that friggin' buzzing comes up.

iTunes: "Neverland" from Marillion's Marbles By The Sea

By the way, there is a different one on Photobucket with a bee, instead of a wasp, but the buzzing is the same.  Luckily it hasn't got to PA, but if it does, I'll be sure to supply a screen shot or something!
