Right now, if a tab that has been overflown away plays audio, the icon is not present on the screen.  We may want to fix that somehow...

Perhaps an icon similar to the one on pinned tabs could appear on the overflow arrow buttons in the tab bar.

We decided that this shouldn't block shipping given that bug 1189759 does.

Some mockup ideas from shorlander: http://cl.ly/image/3k3B1I1M3Z1n http://cl.ly/image/241A131F0S3H/o
Clearing old needinfo request. Please re-request or redirect if it is still pertinent.

Tab Audio Overflow Menu - 01

This is not fully baked, but something we discussed was adding a separate menu that contains all of the tabs playing audio. This would cover the cases of hidden tabs that are playing audio and tabs in other windows that might be playing audio.

I don't mean to annoy but 3 years is too long for this one, the tab audio indicator feature is incomplete until this is implemented. This one is definitely the way to go http://cl.ly/image/241A131F0S3H/o especially because I remember reading last year that Microsoft intends to put audio indicators in the taskbar soon

This really shouldn't be on the back burner, can this get some attention please?
