Is there a way to mute application specific sound, like firefox?

Asked by Jan-Erik van de Pol on 2007-12-16

I want to know if there is a program or tool that mute sound.

I want to mute all sound from Firefox on my Ubuntu machine with a mute button or something when I listen to music with Rhytmbox.
Previously I was looking for a mute-button on Firefox but i can't find. :s

Hi !

I think you can't with your base system. But pulseaudio, which will be included in the next ubuntu version allows that. You can give it a try. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PulseAudio?highlight=%28pulseaudio%29
