Turning on/off sound in the OS does effect other applications as well which should not happen. I suggest to add an icon in the status bar that can be used to switch playing sound on off. I'm not sure though if that icon should work on a per-page basis or as general control for all (tab)pages. If there would also be another image for the same icon to indicate that the actual displayed (tab)page is currently playing sound would be nice too. Some kind of volume control could be considered as well though I do not find it necessary. Also an option for the user to specify if playing sound should be enabled by default would be nice as well. Reproducible: Always
first of all, this bug is absolutely useless as a cross platform bug. second, on some platforms there are n (where n is a non enumerable and unpredictable number) different unrelated apis that allow for the control or play of sound. as such on such platforms it's essentially impossible for mozilla to do this. third, this is a duplicate fourth, on some platforms trying to use the sound apis will lock out other applications, which would be really bad, especially if you were just trying to mute the one application.
