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/…

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

  • It solved the mute-on-pause-error in 78.14.0esr at debian 11 by setting: media.default_volume 10 and media.volume_scale 1.0

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

  • This is actually a different issue. For my problem, I would have to increase the volume after starting firefox every time so the permissions were fine. I think the permission issue is for the snap version of firefox.

  • As commented here on the ubuntu forums, "The main advantage of snaps is that they're sandboxed. The main disadvantage of snaps is that they're sandboxed".
