Firefox plays many sound effects that I find to be annoying.

For example, if you are searching on a page (ctrl+f, then type) and no phrase is found you get a "clunk" sound.

Is there any way to disable this?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Sounds are usually an OS feature and you can start checking what events generate a sound to notify you. On Linux you should also have a special setting for the volume of system sounds.

Firefox has prefs on the about:config page for 'typeaheadfind' that you can modify to disable this feature.

  • accessibility.typeaheadfind.enablesound = true
  • accessibility.typeaheadfind.soundURL = beep
