Mute Audio Tab

   Download For: | |

The Mute Audio Tab is a browser plugin that allows you to mute all tabs with a single click (click).

The toolbar button works as an ON|OFF switch when pressed, and the icon changes to reflect this (the color and form). Please keep in mind that if you just want to unmute one tab, simply right-click on a tab and then select “Unmute Tab.” To silence all other tabs except the active tab, go to the settings page. The addon will not alter your configuration if you manually unmute a tab; even if you click on the toolbar symbol.

1. What is the Mute Audio Tab extension?

The Mute Audio Tab extension for multiple platforms allows you to quickly silence all open tabs by pressing just one button (click). Once you press the icon, it changes color and shape accordingly (ON|OFF). Please remember that if you want to un-mute only one tab, simply right-click on a tab and then choose “Unmute Tab.” Note: even if you click on the toolbar icon to unmute a tab manually, the add-on will not change it.

2. How can I turn the add-on OFF?

When the extension is turned on, the toolbar icon will have a red line across a sound button (disabled sound symbol). All tabs are muted as a result of this. When you switch the addon icon to a basic sound symbol, however, all tabs are unmuted and the plugin is disabled. Alternatively, you can uninstall the plugin by going to your browser add-ons page and clicking on the disable add-on option.

3. Is it possible to whitelist a website or domain?

No, there isn’t currently any way to whitelist a website for silence or unmute. The toolbar button merely mutes all tabs at once. Please keep in mind that this add-on has no effect on tabs that are left open by the user.

4. Is this plugin causing any problems with other extensions in my browser?

No, there is no conflict with other addons in your browser. You may have it functioning properly while additional addons are active.

5. How can I get the Addon for Firefox Android?

6. How can I get rid of this extension from my browser?
