A couple days ago, the audio for this website got quieter and quieter. Today it is completely muted. Other websites work fine, and other browsers can run twitch fine too.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Firefox 42 does have a new "mute" button on a tab which is playing audio, but I think it's just on/off and doesn't affect volume.

If you check the Windows 7 volume mixer while playing the media, can you tell whether the sound is outputting through Firefox or through a plugin? To open the mixer, click the volume icon in the notification/system tray area, then click Mixer. This should help distinguish between "native" playback and plugin playback at the system level. I've attached an old screen shot as an example.

Does this issue occur only on twitch.tv or does it occur on all websites with video/audio content?

So I went into the mixer to see check to see if there was any sound, and I found out that it had been completely muted somehow. Now it works fine, thank you!
