stop video pop-ups
Pop-up ads are common and disgusting. Clever web programmers have
introduced pop-up windows which overlay reduced size frames of videos
which users have scrolled away from. THIS IS ALSO DISGUSTING.
Huffpost is guilty of this. When I get tired of closing those little windows,
I merely ctrl-F4 and leave the web site completely.
CLUE: I buy NOTHING from ads. I DO shop via web searches.
Thank you for your feedback.
We rely on ad revenue, including revenue from videos, to keep producing journalism. This is the reason we don’t have a feature to turn off autoplay video on the web.
However, if you join HuffPost Plus as a paid member, you will get a mostly ad-free experience on our mobile apps (available for Android and iOS) while continuing to support our journalism. Even if you are not a member, you can avoid seeing autoplay video by using the HuffPost app. Please visit this link to sign up: https://www.huffpost.com/subscribe
On the web, you can stop any video from playing by pressing the pause button at the bottom left corner, and can turn off sound via your device settings.

I use to go to Huffington Post daily for news updates, the pop-up videos are ending that. Stop the pop-up videos or lose me permanently.
