Turning off sounds in FireFox

You know that "ffp" sound FireFox makes if you attempt to find something on the page and it doesn't find it?

How do I turn that off?

Figures it would be as easy as going in about:config

It was annoying me too, thanks.

I haven't played with about:config yet. I'm gonna have to start soon.

BTW it wasn't as much "ffp" as it was WWHHHHAAAMMM! giving me the jibbies now and then.

Yeah, I hate programs that automatically use sounds. I forget my speakers are on, I'm editing some sounds, I go to look up something online, and -BUNK!- says Firefox at about ninety decibels.

Thank goodness for about:config.

Still less disturbing than the Ad-Aware bug splat.

What's strange is that Find seems to work better now too. It used to not find capitalized words if I didn't capitalize them with type ahead, but would find them if I hit CTRL + F and Enter. Now it finds them with type ahead.
