    I'm just curious as to what the "mute" thing is. Perhaps a screenshot is in order.

    There are only four other posts in this thread. Perhaps you could be more specific.

    On this system , I'm using an older version of FF, but the only time I get the speaker icon on a tab is when I'm actually playing something with sound. For instance, I went to Keanu shredding and only got the speaker icon on the tab when I started playing one of the videos there. It doesn't show up on any of the other tabs. I noticed in your screenshot, none of the other tabs have the icon.

    Yes that is correct.

    It only shows up when a tab is playing audio. It allows you to mute the audio is you so desire.

    in your URL field copy this "about:config" without quotes.


    Click proceed with caution, and then when at the top click show all. Then in the search field type audio. You will see this "browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon," at the right you will see either false or true. Click it to turn it to false.

    If that doesn't work you can always go nuclear and delete the entire line. On the far right is a toggle icon and when you see the little trash can just click. Please note that only Afterdawn is responsible if anything goes wrong.

    I thought it was an O.F.U. issue, not Afterdawn's fault?

    Did you try deleting the entire line?

    I was confused because in your original post you said it appeared in all tabs.

    I for one don't mind it and I even like using it to mute audio. I'm going to guess that it annoys you because the speaker icon is too close to the close tab icon, and when in a hurry you find yourself closing tabs that you would prefer to leave open? I overcame that as an issue by using Ctrl+M to switch mute on and off.
