Search failed to match sound
When searching within a web page using CTRL-F, as soon as you type enough characters that don't match anything in the page, as in string not found, it makes a loud annoying sound much like Win98 booting. How DO I TURN THAT OFF?

Could you try this:
(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.
(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste sound and pause while the list is filtered
(3) Double-click the accessibility.typeaheadfind.enablesound preference to switch the value from true to false
Does that silence it on yours?

Thank you! My searches kept referring to opening FF in safe mode and mac/ubuntu specific solutions at the top. I did see "accessibility.typeaheadfind.enablesound" a few times but they were always missing the about:config part!
