Firefox always starts at 0 vol as if that is supposed to be the default or something.

Any time I adjust the volume in firefox, I have to open pulse audio and turn the volume back up for firefox.

Any time a new video comes on Youtube, I have to open pulse audio and turn the volume back up for firefox.

Any time I skip forward or back in a playing video or track, I have to open pulse audio and turn the volume back up for firefox.

How can I set the default volume to FULL VOLUME?

I mean seriously, isn't that why there is a system volume?

Any help would be appreciated.

  • It may be just a user setting in your .config/pulse. Try to remove it, see askubuntu.com/questions/201780/… – Takkat Apr 24 '17 at 7:53
  • @Takkat I tried that and it didn't work, however, I did find a solution. – mchid Apr 25 '17 at 13:12

I found a solution!

First, I opened firefox went to about:config

searched for: media.default_volume

double clicked media.default_volume

and finally, I changed the value to 5

Additionally, I saw a solution somewhere else that suggested using 2.0 for media.volume_scale,

make sure that media.volume_scale is set to 1.0

  • what was the original volume value there? Mine is 1.0 and I never felt the need to change it – ubuntubu Apr 25 '17 at 13:28
  • @ubuntubu It was at 1.0 and I typed the wrong one. I was actually thinking about media.default_volume. – mchid May 7 '17 at 0:46

In my system, Firefox for some reason did not have the permission to play sounds. To change it: right click on the icon of the app-> Show Details -> Click on the app -> Permissions -> play sound's check
