    gogalthorp suggestion to look in the /home/yourusername/.config is a good idea. You could for example rename the directory /home/yourusername/.config/pulse to say "pulse-not-work-well' and next time you restart pulse (such as a reboot) that will be recreated with default settings that you can then tune. The advantage of renaming (instead of deleting) is one can always restore the old file.

    I do not know where openSUSE stores information from alsactl. It used to be in an "asound' (or "asound.state" ) file located somewhere .... but I am not up to date wrt how this integrates with pulse audio.

    Note also, one can tune the underlying alsa volume settings, by running as a regular user (in a konsole/xterm) "alsamixer". Then use the 'arrow' keys and the 'function' keys to navigate in that konsole/xterm alsamixer menu.

    It would be a lot easier for us if we were sitting down at your PC, ... unfortunately such is not possible.

    While not Tumbleweed, I note for LEAP-15.1, according to the manual :

    The volume and configuration of all sound cards are saved when you click OK and leave the YaST sound module. The mixer settings are saved to the file /etc/asound.state . The ALSA configuration data is appended to the end of the file /etc/modprobe.d/sound and written to /etc/sysconfig/sound .

    Possibly that could be a place to start looking if the renaming in ~/.config of the pulse directory did not help.

    You mentioned ‘thunderbird’ when referencing your browser, but that’s an email client. Perhaps you meant ‘firefox’. A thread describing similar behaviour with PA....

    It was found that deleting the existing Mozilla profile solved the user’s issue. You could try renaming the ~/.mozilla directory, then restart Firefox and see if that eliminates the unwanted behaviour.

    Usually if I encounter volume problems I always solve with Pvucontrol, I saw that there has already been mentioned there is a setting in> configuration> internal audio> find a drop-down menu, try to change the output (mine works fine with "Analogic Stereo") or you can also intervene from Yast> Harware> sound, you can also disable Pulseaudio using Alsa, good work
