Feature: Color Extension Icon when some tabs are muted.

Changing the color of the extension icon from blue to grey when some tabs are muted to get a visible feedback and be able to quickly check the current mute/unmute state.

Hello. I'd like to offer a new ad format for your consideration.
We are a young modern team of specialists engaged in developing products for monetization of browser extensions.
Our new product called uSearch is a groundbreaking promotion system for sales on the sites. The key principle of operation
is that in search engines partners' extention will display the advertisers' icon left to the page name thus attracting
attention of users.
1. You place our code in extensions
2. During the search users will see highlighted icons of our partners' shops.
3. After purchasing something on the partner's shop website you will receive your percentage of the conversion

If interested, we can show examples how it works when our code has been installed.

The whitelist seems to not be checked on load, I have whitelisted, yet when page is loaded, it defaults to MUTED.

Muting annoying ads on the side of page

Muting background tabs mutes the entire tab while looking at football game. I lose all sound.

How do you mute the sound from annoying ads on the side of the page?

would be most useful, if one-click on the tab would mute/unmute.

New problem: Can't Unmute a Site

Hi. I've been using your extension for a long time and LOVE it. ~ I have it set to mute all new tabs by default, with a few sites on a White-List. Then I UNMUTE a tab when I need to. ~ Recently I can no longer Unmute a tab. The option is there when I right-click, but it doesn't work. I'm using version 3.0.9. I've uninstalled, rebooted, updated chrome, gotten rid of other extensions, etc. etc. THANKS. Gary

Whitelisting a site should unmute currently opened tabs

If I whitelist, and have opened a tab for that site, it should unmute the tab. Currently I have to whitelist and press the unmute button, which is redundant.

Yeah, there is a workaround

I cam here for the same reason as others: It started not to show "Unmute Tab" site when the tab has been muted. I see "Mute site" instead.

As posted by the person in a red shirt, this can be circumvented by clicking the extension button, and then toggling the sound there, but this is not as convenient as dealing with the tab's menu.

Unless this cannot be implemented due to Google's change, please make it work as before.
