Firefox almost muting Winamp, how to disable?

Hi there.

Been having a problem recently, and i've searched the forums and the settings pages for both applications and haven't been able to find anything.

When I have Winamp playing a song and something makes a sound in Firefox, be it the Facebook chat "pop", or a flash video of some sort, Winamp will then reduce the volume to around 5-10%, even though the volume slider is in the same place. Wouldn't be so annoying though, if I didn't have to restart Winamp to allow it to go any louder again.

I'd like to disable this "feature", is it FF? Or Winamp? Or flash for that matter?

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like you're using Windows 7. Windows 7 reduces automatically the other sound when a communication window is used. To fix this go to bottom-right corner, you'll see a little speaker there, right-click on it > Playback Devices > Commuications > check "Do Nothing".

The if you did this while your Winamp volume was reduced you'll have to left-click the same button > Mixer > and maximize the Winamp volume there.

This could be the same for Windows Vista, I'm not so sure.

Hope this helped. Cheers!

if you dont care about the sounds in firefox
go to volume control and hit mute under that program while your on facebook
just remember to hit unmute when visiting sites you do want sounds (ex. youtube)
