Firefox does not use the Windows Sounds for Menu Command and Menu Popup (as
defined in Control Panel).

Also no sound is made when you click a link, the Start Navigation sound (and
possibly Stop Navigation) could be used for this purpose.

Finally the "Phrase not found" sound is not configurable. It should use the
Exclamation sound from Control Panel.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

If you don't like the sound effects then you can always disable them, but the
fact they're not customisable isn't very user friendly.
dupe of bug 248380 ?

Not really - bug 248380 deals only with Start Navigation sounds, this bug deals
with all the sounds that should be there.

I don't know if this is a bug or an enhancement, all the MS and Non MS apps i've
used play the Menu Command and Menu Popup sounds and it's strange using an app
that doesn't.
Likewise most apps have configurable sounds (such as a failed search sound).

Therefore I think the above two are bugs on Windows.

The Start Navigation is an enhancement though, which should be left to bug 24380.
Severity: enhancement → normal

Oops I meant bug 248380.
its an enhancement.  No one has implemented this, so it would be an enhancement
request to add support for this on Windows.

I can see your point but on the other hand the Windows UI has menu sounds as
standard (all other apps use it). Therefore Firefox is not providing a standard
Windows interface.

For example if the Firefox window was non-resizable or modal it would be marked
as a bug, even though it technically isn't.

Either way it should be fixed/added IMHO.

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

Confirming feature request, seems like a valid idea to me.

is there a way to set this wanted‑firefox3.2 now that bug 83056 is fixed ?
This bug report isn't useful because this bug has 3 issues.

The menu related sounds were already implemented in bug 83056. The start/end navigation sounds are reported on bug 248380 but that was marked as duplicate of this bug. And the last issue, "Phrase not found" sound is not reported in another bug. So, I suggest that this bug should track the last issue. And bug 248380 should be reopened for the navigation sounds.
Not part of the shell integration code. Moving to widget.

I wonder if this should be in accessibility vs. widget.
