Today I had only Firefox open on my Mac and a sound played that I can't find the source of. It was 3 notes, with the last note being the highest pitch. It worries me that something happened and I can't find out what.

When this happened I quickly rebooted my Mac and then updated Firefox to the latest version (I had the version before the latest, I believe.) But I still would like to know what the sound means.

Hi, I've got a problem with sound with few websites. I'm using 2 sound devices, my headset and my 2nd TV screen which have speakers. For example I got problem with twitter and google translator. When I try to play a sound from both of these sites when I'm using my headset as my default sound output, it doesn't work, there is no sound at all but when I change to my TV screen it plays these sounds. I have no problem with youtube, netlfix or other steaming platforms. I've just noticed that problem with these 2 websites, I don't know about other websites. Oh, and on 9gag I got similar problem but not every video is without sound, some of them has a sound and some of them hasn't. My device is set to default as in attached image.

Hi there,

Firefox has started crashing anytime I try to playback media with my Focusrite interface selected for playback. This issue has been ongoing for a few months. Any page like youtube, with video or media embedded causes a crash.

For reference, I'm using a Focusrite Red8pre on a Macbook Pro. The error does not occur when using the laptops speakers for playback.

Any help here would be appreciated.

Cheers, -Harry

Audio stops playing after 2-3 seconds

The issue: on all sites, whenever media with audio plays (either automatically, or when I click), the audio stops after 2-3 seconds. If it is video, the video continues to play without sound. When it is audio-only, such as bandcamp, the timestamp stops. Audio resumes playing if I rewind or manually move the timestamp handle (scrubber?) back. This must be repeated each time the media is paused. Audio does not resume playing if play and pause are pressed, or if the site is refreshed.

Troubleshooting steps attempted so far:

  • Tried a different browser. Microsoft Edge works just fine.
  • Allowed autoplay for both audio and video
  • Cleared cache, and ensured that cookies were allowed
  • Turned off all adblockers
  • Uninstalled flash
  • Refreshed firefox settings

I'm at a loss!
