I'm a Linux user, and am having a problem with youtube.com when accessing it with the Chromium web browser (version 53.0).

When YouTube lists search results, each result shows a picture. The problem is that when the mouse is horizontally in line with any given picture, the picture starts displaying frames from the video in rapid succession, ad Infinium.

This is so annoying and distracting. It's driving me crazy. I just want to see completely still pictures. I can't find any discussion of the problem via google.

Firefox (version 49.0) doesn't do this.

My Question:

How do I stop the rapid frame display from happening when using Chromium, so that all I see are STILL pictures?

Unfortunately, moving the mouse to the far left or right of the page isn't a useful solution.
