LIMPET235 you are likely using the wrong button. Here is a pic of the button you press first

Then you click on "Send Sound" and then pick something from the menu. I tried this in FF59.0.1 and FF61a and it doesn't work. As noted above it also doesn't work in Safari. It does in Chrome; since I'm on a Mac can't test on Edge.

Thank you and I appreciate the intention but the reason I didnt post it here was to prevent it from being spammed, thats why I sent it to all of you via PM.
Anyway, the sound is heard on Chrome and Internet Explorer, I dont have Edge so I cant test it there.

Confirming works in Chrome, does not work in Firefox or Edge and I can't get it to work in IE 11 either.

O.K.
This is the current situation.
I can play all the sounds in v20 but none in v57 or in IE11.
The "scream" is very real."

Curious, what's the MIME type being sent? Should be Content-Type: audio/mpeg

Don't want to get repetitious; however, you can't hear it on Safari or IE11 (from LIMPET235) either. Since it does not work in three popular browsers I suggest it is a coding issue on the site.

The OP runs the site but did not code it and the code is complex. Sounds like it will continue to be an issue on

  • Firefox
  • Safari
  • IE11
Unless a coding wizard comes forward; I think there is nothing we can do.

Okay, but if its a coding issue it means its a code that used to work before and after the updates it wont anymore but I would like to know a way to debug it and fix it so it works for newer versions.

I have no idea. The issue may be depreciated things in JavaScript or the actual HTML of the site. Some coding wizard may come along; however, that is not me.

Good luck.

Nobody yet? There is nobody from the mozilla support team around? Where can I find them?
