    If the first thing I do after opening a thread is hit "spacebar" (which I do frequently to "page down,") they all start playing at the same time. :mad:

    I hit spacebar a few times in this thread and nothing happened even though there is a video avatar in the thread, but I use a mac so I don't know, still it would be nice if they were set to a default volume of 0 that way they could play and not be annoying.

    Default to zero volume would be acceptable.

    IE7 is annoying as hell. I'm avoiding it as long as possible. That and Office 2007. MS products are becoming full of fail and AIDS.

    The bother me at work because everyone seems to want to post thread responses with youtube vids. You tube is blocked at work so they don't show and AVs are dead also. Annoying at work.

    I don't have a problem with them playing, I just hate that if you have avs turned off, youtube avs still show.

    I like my toolbar to look like this:

    [​IMG]


    You cannot do that with IE7 as far as I can tell from having to use computers with IE7 at work.
    The rearranging of the toolbars is very difficult. If there were an IE7 "skin" that replicated IE6 that would be okay.

    I do not like tabbed browsing. I cannot figure out how to turn that off.

    I'm sure there's more that I can't think of right now. :o
