Sorry to learn you are experiencing an issue at the main site.
I did not reply to your first post as I thought you were simply venting about not being able to turn off the music player permanently, which has been a regular complaint in the past. Knowing these complaints and continuing to maintain the music player as is, I gather those in charge have made their decision on how they want the music player to appear. Nothing I could suggest would make any difference as I have already reported the complaints about this feature including reporting via surveys conducted, etc. Now having read your latest posts and viewed your screen shot, I see that you are referring to something completely different.
I am not a mod/admin at the main site and therefore have no ability to address issues there. I am not able to assist on a personal level as I am unable to recreate the issue you are experiencing. I do not see the same when I visit the main site. I am with Kestrel, I do not have the ability to opt (x) out of the music player. I do not see the music player when I visit the main site. I have to click an up arrow found at the bottom of the main site to have the music player appear on screen. I am able to temporarily silence the music player by clicking AUTO-PLAY, but eventually the music returns. I am also able to silence the music by sliding the music player volume control to zero, and of course by silencing speakers on my end.
