Firefox 77 ignoring browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon

So after updating to Firefox 77.0, I have noticed that despite having browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon set to false, it Firefox insists on placing the audio icon in my tabs regardless.

Is there a way to get rid of it, perhaps with CSS or something?

Chosen solution

The browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon pref is no longer supported in Firefox 77 (#1634012) as this is a pref that was only meant to control this feature during its development stage.
Once such a feature is working properly then the control pref is removed and the feature is enabled by default.
This is also happening with browser.urlbar.update1 prefs that were also removed in Firefox 77.

So there is no way to disable it anymore?

So far this seems to work.

.tab-icon-overlay { display:none !important; }
.tab-icon-overlay[pinned] { display:none !important; } 
.tab-icon-overlay[crashed] { display:none !important; }
.tab-icon-sound { display:none !important; }
