When I watch a playlist on you tube, every freaking time it start a new vid, the volume increases.
I am starting to get the feeling to kill a programmer. Why can’t Fire Fox leave my system volume alone ? >:(
I remember from the past having the opposite problem, but hoping somebody knows a solution ?
I am totally annoyed, who ever thought it was a good idea to keep resetting audio volume ? I don’t get it.
Do I need to file a bug report at Mozilla ?
After googling I found out, I don’t seem to be the only one have having this issue, I see even windows users complaining about this, but no solutions
Not sure of this is related ?
I am starting to become convinced, this is 100% a Firefox problem, nothing to do with openSUSE.
While reading the replies on the bugzilla, I saw a name I know. One of the Ardour developers.
Its a small Linux world.
One thing I know for sure, he is not using openSUSE.
Going off topic,
For those wondering Ardour? :
In stalling and using Jack might fix this issue, I would need to test that. (feels weird with pipe wire on its way though)

I do not have ~/.pulse or ~/.config/pulse/*.config
in short: I can’t see any difference arising from this setting, even though I agree that from its description it ought to work.
Some stuff to think about and or try.
TW is already using pipewire.
Check for presence of pipewire-pulseaudio package and other pipewire settings.
You may try to uninstall pipewire and use PulseAudio instead.

Unless I am mistaken, I am not using pipewire yet.
I do know some parts of pipewire are already installed.

Better use LANG=C before any commands you want to post in the English language section. LIke
LANG=C pactl info
I installed wire plumber, then YAST wanted to uninstall Pulse, and I accepted:

For now I still have sound and all seems fine. Not sure if this fixes the firefox issue but we will see.
