Firefox does not obey "Audio MIDI Setup" in Apple macOS at all! It overwrites to whatever selected device master out preventing the audio from being properly routed according to the "Audio MIDI Setup" standard Apple macOS Audio Setup. If you need to route to a Quadraphonic, or anything other than Stereo you won't be able to do it. If you need to route the audio through a special set of virtual audio channels where you can add compressors, EQ, filters, it will not let you. Google Chrome and Safari do this right without any need to change any settings or configurations on the browser side, all you need to do is configure the System-Wide Audio Settings in "Audio MIDI Setup", which is the only way and standard to the audio configuration on any macOS systems.

I am a Linux/Unix System Administrator/Engineer, and I also work with Music Production using special professional interfaces from UA United Audio Apollo x8p and Focusrite. Those interfaces are connected to different sets of speakers, and they also have virtual audio channels where you can add a chain of plugins to treat the audio signal passing through them.

This behavior should be considered a bug, although it is probably by design, which needs to be changed to adhere to the macOS system configuration standards for audio routing.

I tested this with the latest and greatest stable Firefox version, Google Chrome, and Safari. The only browser misbehaving is the Mozilla Firefox.

However, when I downloaded the file, opened my file browser, then dropped the "flac" file into Firefox, it played just fine using the VLC plugin.

So why can't Firefox play the file online, but does from a file?

Recently all the audio breaks up badly on YouTube and ssome other videos that I play (the other videos may be a YoouTube sorce). I have tried reloading the mozilla updates, gone back to older versions and tried the "reset" and nothing seems to work. All my downloaded vidoes, DVD's and programs seem to be working just fine so I don't think I am having hardware issues. It doesn't even happen every time but when it does it happens on everything on YouTube.

I have been using www.internet-radio.com for some time without any problems. I can still use it on my laptop. However, just today one of my computers cannot play any music from any of the site's channels without getting an echo. All channels and all songs do it. When I press the pause button for the channel Firefox crashes and displays the crash report pop-up.

As a test, I have watched videos through Firefox from Youtube and Amazon without any audio problems. I have also played songs via Youtube without problem. All audio from my local hardrive plays correctly as well. I then switched to a couple of alternate radio web sites, and there are no problems. The problem is only on this one web site (internet-radio).

I did notice that on the detail list for the Firefox crash report that my Webroot antivirus is listed as a component in the crash. However, Webroot has no detections of any problems, either from a virus or from any event created when I enter the affected web site.

So, why does this only affect a single internet radio service? Is there anything I can do to correct it myself?

Thank you, Brian

In the last Firefox upgrade, it has prevented ANY sound playing through the default speaker. ALL other applications, Windows 10 sounds, etc. ALL sounds play fine through regular default speaker out port. It is only Firefox which will not play sound unless I change it to another port. Please advise why it will not play on default settings and how to resolve.

Hello everyone,

During the last few month I noticed a bug happening when I am playing sound on Firefox (like a YouTube video). This bug appears especially when I pause or go forward or backward on a video. The sound suddenly has bad quality and constant cracklings, and I can't understand the video anymore. At the beginning I thought it was a YouTube issue, but this problem happened on other websites too. It's not an issue caused by my laptop or my loudspeakers because I don't have any issue when I play music directly on my computer.

To solve the problem, I have either to close Firefox completely (close only the problematic tab doesn't solve anything) or to open a new Firefox window and slip it in the old one (I am sorry if my explanation isn't clear but I can't upload screenshots...).

Thanks for reading Hopping you will be able to help me

Hello to All: I need some help. About 15-20 days ago, I had to re-install my Windows 7 (32-bit) OS and all software including Mozilla Firefox Quantum (32-bit). Since installing Mozilla Firefox Quantum 67.0 (32-bit) - when I use a "TAB" to listen to streaming: Live internet radio or Podcast, all is good. The problem is when I open a second "TAB" to surf or view info. When I start to click on anything (ex: next page), the first "TAB" playing the Podcast will stop playing and return to the beginning of the Podcast. This only happen when opening a second "TAB". This never happen before. Can it be the new update to level "67.0" or a bad installation of Firefox? Should I un-install Firefox and then re-install Firefox?

I got new Logitech G560 speakers, with USB connection to my computer, and they work like a charm. Except for Firefox. No matter which page, Youtube, Facebook, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Twitter... no sound for videos. Firefox is quiet. If I check my sound settings, the bar for sound input is not even moving, seems like Firefox is just not recognising or forwarding any sound to my USB G560 speakers.

On the other hand, everything works in Google Chrome and sound is brilliant. The problem just seems to be with Firefox. I disabled all audio devices, especially my old audio-out where I had my old speakers. I updated the drivers for Realtek HD Audio (even though I am sure I do not need them for the G560) and also updated again driver for the G560 as well as the Logitech G Hub. Firefox is also the latest version.

But nothing. Only thing happening is after trying to often to load a video in Firefox to get sound, and checking my sound settings, I get an error message saying the audio enhancements are not working properly and asking me if I wanna disable them. If I click yes, it solves the issue and Firefox is forwarding sound to my G560.

Now I thought I can disable any sound enhancements in general in WIndows 8.1... but no chance. I cannot find any setting for that. No matter where I search, it seems only Windows 10 gives that option. There is also no sound enhancement in G Hub or when checkin the system control for devices. Re-Installing the G560 drivers does not change anything.

So if I wanna have any sound in Firefox I am depending on the error message popping up... which happens only rarely. But that can't be the solution :( It seems to me the problem is with Firefox, in the way it handles the sound channel or content or whatever... and does not recognize my G560 via USB as speaker system. Even though it is the only one set active in my system.

I am really looking for any help and input to solve this please... !
