A computer support tech did some "housecleaning" on my computer yesterday via Remote Access. After he finished, I had to re-do Firefox (among other things) from scratch: settings, extensions, customizations, etc. Another difference I noted is that when I mute or change the volume on my speaker, a control panel appears in the upper left-hand corner of the screen next right next to the mute-to-100 volume slider. (See attached screenshot.) I know there's a way to turn that panel off without affecting the volume slider because I was told (here at Support) how to do it when I first began with Firefox. However, it was a long time ago; I don't remember what I did. I think it had something to do with config: then changing a setting from on/1 to off/2 or something like that. Will someone please help again? Thanks in advance. :)

THAT'S IT! YOU NAILED IT!

Thank you VERY much, Scribe. That annoying panel is gone, thanks to you.

Just in case some preference, temp file, or whatever gets deleted again and that annoyance reappears, I will refer to your answer--which I copied, pasted, and saved.

With MUCH gratitude, Will  : )
