How Can I AUTOMATICALLY Stop A Web Browser's YouTube.com Video From Automatically Re-Playing When Re-Opening A Web Browser's Last Saved Session?

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
Question: Hello. Often when I open a web browser like Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, etc.; my website's webpage(s) open where I last visited because I have set my last browsing session(s) saved from any one of these prospective web browsers. Now, when I have a video play from such a website such as YouTube.com for example, the video automatically plays each time I open the prospective web browser when the last browsing session loads. I may have several browser windows within the web browser open from my last browsing session. How do I *AUTOMATICALLY* stop the YouTube.com video from playing once I open the prospective browser *WITHOUT* having to *MANUALLY* stop the video each time where I may have to go to web browser window where YouTube.com video is playing and click on the 'pause' button to stop it?  

Is there some built-in browser feature or setting, an add-on, a third party program to install, etc. that will *AUTOMATICALLY* stop the video from playing (like with YouTube.com) when I re-open my last saved session in any one of these web browsers?

I am using Windows 7 64-bit.
