Any way to stop youtube vids from all playing when FF starts (40+tabs)

I have about 40+ tabs open in firefox 10 and many of those are videos on youtube.So i have a bit of a problem when i start the browser ,as all the flash videos start to play at once and it's a big problem having to go to each tab and clicking the pause button on each of the players window while going slightly deaf from all the multiple audio that's bellowing out.

So far the only easy solution i've found is just to open task manager and end firefox's plugin container process .Is there not a simpler option that would stop all the (flash video) processes from starting from the off.A firefox add on or similar ?

It sounds like you have the browser set up to save all the tabs when it closes.
You can set Firefox to not save any tabs when it closes.

you could setup a youtube account and just favorite all of those videos into a playlist.
