Hello. As the title says, Firefox fetches my Windows sounds for its UI. I want to know if there's a way I can disable them for Firefox because they are really loud here and, even if they weren't, I wouldn't want them in the browser.

Sounds and sound control is through the Windows O/S system you need to look there and for loudness control volumes.

The problem isn't audio management, it's that Firefox uses the settings used in Windows Sounds aka which sounds play and for what function.

If I lower the volume to 0 on "System Sounds", they'll still play on Firefox. If I reduce Firefox's volume, then I would barely hear videos or anything with audio, which doesn't even make sense as to why one would do that.

I did modify the files to be more quiet and they are not loud now but the problem isn't the volume. I talk specifically about the "Menu Command" and "Menu Pop-Up" sounds which on Windows, trigger on a Right-Click but on Firefox they are always playing for every menu, right-click and a few prompts.

I just want to get rid of these sounds for Firefox because it's pointless and annoying for a browser to have.

So what site are you going to that has this audio?

It's not website related. As I said, the whole Firefox UI. The interface uses the sound.
