I can't reproduce it on Win 7 with FF50, the typewriter sounds are correct for me and can be heard after each typing.

When the tab is muted, the typewriter sounds should /not/ be heard - However, they are still affecting the sound system.

WFM, if I mute all tabs, typewritter sounds are muted too.
Oddly, I don't get any sound at all. Does this use Flash?

                                     ^ even unmuted
I don't know how to reproduce this issue.

I am able to replicate this with Firefox 54.0 on OSX with notifications (like Slack). Tab is muted, I have someone send me a message and I can hear it through my speakers even though the mute tab icon is showing. I have restarted Firefox, unmuted and muted and the same issue happens. This is requiring me to close pinned tabs during meetings where I don't want an audio distraction.
