For each new Firefox tab or window the volume automatically is set the same as the system volume on the very left, 70 % (although I always descrease it) what is far too loud. How could I make Firefox to keep a lower and always the same volume, eg. 10 %?

Couldn't you change the default system volume?

I have an external amplifier connected that would need the system volume like I have set it. But why at all does Firefox all the time adjusts the volume, that is extremely annoying. No other program does it.

Many thanks!

I entered a value there, did some tries, until now it works, will see if it will keep on working in all day live. Would be very great, the volume changes each time were extremely annoying.

Many thanks again!

Thank you. It was already set like this but it didn't help.
