Why can't I get rid of ads I don't like anymore? There used to be an X you could click that says "I don't like this ad"?
and then tell them why and it would disappear. I've been trying to get rid of the Red Bull ad for a few days. It's very annoying with the motorcycle noise and I think it even comes through when the mute button is on.

Because the advertisers are getting annoyingly smart.
They used to think if you click the X it means you don't like the ad and they shouldn't show it to you. Now they think if you click the X it means the ad got your attention and they should show you a bunch very similar to it.
Also: The current version of Firefox has an option (off by default, I think) to block all autoplay video. With a choice to block autoplay video that includes sound, but allow silent or muted autoplay.
