Finally! Audio Indicators and Muting Arrives in Firefox Nightly

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

It sounds like there are still some bugs that need to be worked out, but it’s nice to see that Firefox has finally adopted this feature.

Mozilla just enabled audio indicators and muting in the most recent version of Firefox Nightly, the cutting edge version of Firefox that gets features first. If you happen to have lots of tabs open, you sometimes may find it difficulty to locate an audio source in your browser of choice. Chrome users had tab audio indicators for some time now thanks to the browser’s native implementation of Adobe Flash which gave Google more control over it and thus options to identify and control audio.
