Ads auto playing Audio
WTF am I hearing a dog food ad from a panel off screen that I know I didn't click, and when I finally find the panel the Mute command doesn't work

if you are serious do not be anononymous....
I was trying to watch video of dogs being adopted - Tribago ad was playing VERY LOUD! I could not even FIND the video to silence it!@!!!!
the autoplay ads and news pieces are very annoying.
Another similar annoyance has started !! Now, when I'm reading a newly opened news article, a 3-second musical attention catching audio starts up, and then repeats every 10 seconds disrupting my ability to focus on what I'm reading. There's no way to tell where it's coming from!! but I suspect it's from your own drop-down toolbar that pops up at the top of the page as I read and scroll down the news article I'm trying to focus on. THIS IS ****ING ANNOYING !!!
Oh ********, Yahoo Admin bot from India!
You continue to ask that users post URL's for the ads that are automatically running. Try this, log onto Yahoo to see the news. You will then have multiple videos(ads) start running, some cannot even be muted or stopped. The only way to stop the ad is to leave the page.
If one is leaving the page due to multiple videos running and stopping the web browser from running, don't you think that soon those folks will start reading their news on someone else's web pages?

Just now watching a video of the President on 60 minutes and up in the right corner is an ad for a hamburger joint that starts auto playing over the video I am watching. Tried to shut it off but no off button.

Thanks for your feedback. Could you provide with article URLs so that we can look into the issue?

I was pleasantly surprised when I received an email from Yahoo about the annoying auto play
video. In the email the writer told me to turn off the sound to the video which was a good idea.
The problem with that is the audio controls do not work on some of them. Oh well, at least I got a response, it's a start.
