Hello! The audio output of Firefox is always set to the speakers of my laptop. I can't hear videos or music via my headphones or another audio device (Steinberg UR 22 mkII). When I take other browsers or spotify, the audio output is allways on the plugged in devices. But with Firefox I only hear it through laptop speakers.

Hi Joseph, when I want to change the playback device, I click the speaker icon in the lower right corner of the Windows 10 Taskbar and it has drop-down to choose between headset and speakers. I don't know whether there is a better way to do it, but does that method work for you?

No, i click on for example the headphones, but the sound comes still from the laptop speakers. It only works on headphones, if i deactivate the speakers on the windows playback devices. But that's circuitous...

This is not a common problem so I don't know how to fix this apart from what jscher2000 already told you. The only other option I can see is if you uninstall and reinstall firefox and see if the problem still persists.
