    Firefox - audio mute - warning


    Hi folks
    just a warning that it's easy to mute audio on Firefox quite by accident -- unmuting in the video doesn't work. Not sure what key combos I pressed -- trouble of course when working with different language keyboard layouts simultaneously.

    The ony way I could unmute it was to right mouse click on the icon on the taskbar which if you had hidden it !!! tough luck.

    You should in the icon see a little loudspeaker embedded if audio is playing or muted.

    My stupid error but I'm sure others might have fallen into this trap and it's not intuitive how to "repair the damage"

    Cheers

  2. Firefox opens many processes - cant mute audio

    I dont know since when this is happening but Firefox is opening alot of processes and every process can appear in my volume settings

    Image of my mixer

    If I mute these processes and open a new tab with audio, the mute of the processes will be ignored and audio is playing (most of the time).

    Is there a way to bind all the audio to one process again? or any addons to mute everything?

  3. Audios is completely muted

    Just as about to browse on the internet and watch Twitch and some stuff, I hear nothing with audios and it's dead silence. I thought I have to put mute on, but I hear nothing the rest of it.

    I have to try to fix it (such as put automatic Window Audios, Plug and Play and whatever that is), remove or update audio driver and restart and the list goes on) and it's still not working. I don't know why the speaker and audio are not working. I can tell
    Audios is not responding and whatever that is with configuring has been removed, whether it was a glitch or not. There no way its dead silence despite the speaker is on and hear nothing. Audio is not responding is completely glitches I guarantee and none of
    the stuff is working. Perhaps it all REALTEK driver stops working and glitching out that for sure.

    But seriously, can someone how to fix properly with the SIMPLE step before something is NOT gonna be pretty.

    Volume goes to zero and mute.

    Hi William,

    If the volume of your computer automatically mutes, it could be that the audio drivers are corrupted or damaged, or that there are software conflicts occurring within the system. As a first troubleshooting step, we suggest that you run the audio troubleshooter
    and lets Windows find and automatically resolve problems with your audio. Here's how to run the audio troubleshooter:

    • Select the Start button, then type troubleshoot, and select
      Troubleshoot from the list of results. From there, select
      Playing Audio
      > Run the troubleshooter.

    If the troubleshooter does not help resolve the problem with your volume settings, we suggest that you check Device Manager and update your sound card drivers. Updating would replace any corrupted or damaged components of the audio driver. Here's how to
    update your audio drivers through Device Manager:

    • Open the Start button, then type device manager, and select
      Device Manager from the search results.
    • Under Sound, video and game controllers, right-click your sound card driver, then select
      Update Driver.
    • Select Search automatically search for updated driver software.
    If Windows doesn't find a new driver, you may look for one on the device manufacturer's website and follow their instructions on how to install their driver.

    If the above steps doesn't resolve the problem, feel free to post back to us.
