Firefox sets process sound to 100% on every new tab, new youtube video, podcast, etc
Running fedora 34, gnome.
Firefox sets the process volume to 100% whenever a new youtube video plays, whenever sound on a new tab plays, even when I forward on a player on website in a tab.
This is very painful on my ears at times, is there anything I can do about it?

Try downloading another copy of Firefox and run it from the folder. Do not sign into your Firefox account and see if you have the same issue.
What desktop are you running? I also see the same thing with each tab being at 100% volume. see screenshot Firefox or Desktop Environment issue... I would guess Desktop, but someone more websavvy will have to chime in.

Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately downloading and running from the folder did not solve my problem - although I'm kind of glad to see the same happening on someone else's machine :)

I uncheck the option in the red circle and the last 3 tabs that I opened are not at 100%. see screenshot

Thanks for the reply, hope you're having a great new year :)
Perhaps I'm being silly, but I can't find where you're finding that red circle? I don't have that configure button on the sound settings....
